Simple Japanese Noodle Soup
This is a recipe that Will and I have been cooking up most evenings lately. We do our best to eat early dinner, around 17.00-18.00, to give our body the best opportunity to digest before bed. It is not always possible due to work and responsibilities, (looking at the time as I write this and it’s just ticking 18.30 as Will is finishing this soup).
If we get to past 20.30 pm and we haven’t had the chance for dinner, we usually skip and go to bed a little earlier to read or sit for meditation.
But with this recipe dinner just became so much easier and it tastes delicious. It is great to balance out Vata’s dryness. It is also perfect for getting hydrated. Ayurveda teaches us to eat 1/3 solids, 1/3 water and leave 1/3 empty for digestion.
