Ok. My house is complete disaster but my kids are happy. And that my friends is what counts. In the past this ‘Mother Goose’ was to apologetic about her messy nest. Not anymore. Story of today could be a prefect example why. Like always there were too many things to do. Usually when I think I am done and can slow down a little there is one more thing to do. This one was a pleasure.
My 12 years old Matia had school assignment and today was due date. His whole class of 12 boys cooked complete Ayurveic meal for their families and teachers. Then they documented everything in beautiful Ayurvedic cookbook and even gave smart presentation about Ayurveda. While chasing Mila around the table I was able to see those bright boys talk about ocean of consciousness and its different properties rooted in three different Doshas as Rishi, Devata and Chhandas.
Everything was perfect. Mission completed successfully. Except one part. Matia’s recipe was NOT in the book. Alas!
He was kind of cool about it seamed but I heard him say: “It’s just kinda of bummer it’s not in the book”. Well he didn’t send his recipe on time but I wanted him to know that we can fix everything. Everyone can see and enjoy his recipe as well. For all of you parents, teachers and everyone who wants to enjoy good Ayurvedic meal. Here it is. Matia’s Kafa balancing Lima Beans Dall Recipe.
It is ideal for Spring season. It is wet and still kinda cold. This meal will sure make you cozy and at the same time help you stay balanced. It is good for all who accumulate that extra weight way to easy. Enjoy!

Here are the pictures of This fantastic Maharishi School of Age of Enlightenment 6 graders and their Dosha Diner project. I enjoyed every single bit of this event. Food was supreme but their fun and smart presentation about Ayrvedic Doshas was the feast #1 for me. I just wish I filmed this so you can see it too. Well one can’t do it all. I hope photos can do justice.
When I arrived at the school’s front door boys were welcoming me and leading me to the Diner hall. When I found place for me and my two years old I could see how this boys are rolling. As a busy bees they were preparing plates for everyone.
