Back to Basics: Kitchari

I’m having a rough week. My gut is too. Or my gut is having a rough week and therefore so am I. Tomato-tomato.

So tonight I made a pot of kitchari to try to reset my gut, resolve some lingering pain and discomfort, and feel better.

As I’ve mentioned before kitchari was one of the first real meals I could eat after treatment. In addition to being gentle on the gut and easy to digest, kitchari has a number of nutritional benefits to promote healing.

For example, Moong or mung beans are incredibly beneficial. Read about 10 major health benefits here. Most notably for c-diff recovery: “Mung beans contain soluble fiber and resistant starch, which can promote digestive health. The carbs in mung beans are also less likely to cause flatulence than those of other legumes.”

Here’s hoping a quick kitchari cleanse gives my body the break it needs to get back to normal (or what counts as normal these days anyway).
