~ POWER OF SPICES ~
In Ayurveda, herbs and spices are seen as powerful medicine. 🌱In fact, these are commonly prescribed by Ayurvedic doctors. Easily available, use spices regularly as both - flavor and health enhancers.
Used in moderation, spices:
~ improve digestion, absorption and assimilation of nutrients
~ clear the sinuses
~ aid circulation
~ break down the clots
~ support bowel movement
~ kill parasites and germs
~ soothe the Kapha dosha
~ bring clarity of perception
Aside from commonly used black pepper, include cinnamon, turmeric, coriander, fennel and cumin seeds. Little things can truly make a huge difference for your well-being. 🤸♀️

Pon pa! Pounded catfish with charred aromatics and fresh herbs! It’s gonna be fish purée in a min. This dish reminds me of a chat I recently had with my Lao mom. I love chattingoutLao w/ my her, because one of the polite ways to say hello & how are you is to ask if she’s eaten yet. So right of the bat we’re talking about Lao food! My favorite topic. One time she mentioned she was making jaew pa. And I asked her hmmm sounds Saap delicious how do you make that? She goes on to describe how to make it and then I said, it sounds a lot like pon pa? She said it’s not because of these additional ingredients and the method of cooking even though the padaek broth base is similar. Wow! Mind-blowing 🤯! I’m constantly learning from my mom and I wished I had written it down because I’ve already forgotten. It’s okay we’ll save that for another have you eaten yet chat! .

@9nanam @soleman_tran Thank you both for being such amazing people in my life. I truly cannot express how much both of you mean to me. Well, more so Anna... lol! I still remember to this day when you both drove me home, even though I could have driven home from the west Seattle house. All dat Jameson!!! You two looked out for me and I am truly grateful.
Thank you for my mortar!!! You both are welcome to try all my papaya salads and sauces that come outta there. 😂😂 #myfavcouple#theygetme#framily#lovethem#soblessed#theybeautiful#mortarandpestle
