Tofu + Soba Noodle Salad

In the summer, I live off cooling veg + pasta salads. This one is a Tofu + Soba Noodle Salad. It's got all the goods and is perfectly satisfying for the remaining weeks of summer. If you haven’t cooked with soba noodles before, give em a try. They taste more earthy than typical pasta and are a nice way to mix up your typical routine. Plus, soba noodles cook in only 3 minutes! Keep them on hand for nights when you only have a total of 10 minutes to get pasta, leftover veg, and cheese or protein into a bowl for dinner.

Turmeric lattes, also called “golden milk,” are the quintessential Ayurvedic drink. There are many versions of this beverage and I encourage to modify per your tastes.

It’s a great way to unwind after your work day has ended and is particularly supportive in stressful times, or as a gentle sleep aid. For these reasons, vata doshas (or those with a vata imbalance) may find this drink particularly supportive.

It’s just as beneficial to take internally as applied topically. Aloe is cooling, hydrating, and soothing. While the taste of aloe ‘meat’ and juice is bitter, paired with cooling, sweet ingredients (like rose and honey), it becomes a perfect addition to a refreshing, summer mocktail.
