I like to use peanut sauce, hoisin sauce or cocktail sauce; depending on my taste buds at the time. Some highly favored sauces can be found on amazon.com or you can check your local grocery store. Try to stay away from anything with a lot of persevatives and check label for any food allergies such as gluten or nuts. I opted for cocktail sauce as I should avoid peanuts and I can’t have gluten which that was in the available hoisin sauce. I found some gluten-free hoisin sauce on Amazon afterwards.

Stay tuned for more blogs on how to integrate Ayurveda into your daily life with herbal teas, recipes and self care techniques. Take my Dosha Type quiz to learn which type of foods you should me eating for your mind & body. Knowing your dosha will help you better understand yourself as a whole. Learn to journal before bed or when you get a quiet alone time. If you don’t feel like you have alone time, make it a priority and find that time. Negotiate with family members if need be. Everyone needs that time for self reflection because it helps us let go of stress and really evaluate our mental clarity and goals in life.
