It’s Time To Shake Things Up!
~ Recipes & Tips for Metabolic Body Types ~

Juicing is convenient, it’s fast, it’s packed with nutritionally high fresh ingredients. But is it really as healthy as it is made out to be? In ayurvedic terms, of course, it all depends on what’s in it, and when you are consuming it, because bottom line and in SVA terms, the formula for health is super simple: you want your food to be rich in soma and nourishing, but without suppressing or putting out your digestive fire or agni! You want it to be satiating enough but not heavy and clogging so it does not block your channels and result in undigested toxic waste or ama. In a nutshell, you want your food to balance all your doshas without aggravating or depleting any of them so it can result in the ultimate post-digestive nectar that bestows immortality – ojas. Without ojas, we cannot experience the higher states of immortal consciousness. That’s why there’s really nothing more important than you what you eat, day in day out…. And that’s why juicing has become such a fad: in the search for the healthy instant meal, we have compromized and sacrified other important ayurvedic principles.  
For one, juicing gurus suggest and mix-in ingredients helter-skelter, adding protein powders, dehydrated vegetable powders, soy, etc. We don’t need to wait for long term consumption to confirm the results and see that such recipes cause more harm than good. This is one of the reasons Vaidya Mishra introduced his Vegan Protein Powders – clients used to ask him about juicing, so he had to re-introduce us to the ancient ayurvedic method of consuming a nourishing and refreshing protein shake on-the-go. This SVA Vegan Protein Powder is not only tri-doshic but it is also soy and gluten-free. 
A word on ‘other’ protein powders: One of the factors that made Vaidya decide to make this high protein powder was that so many of his clients were supplementing their protein intake with unhealthy alternatives, such as soy, green peas, and whey powders. These mixes are very popular in the marketplace. Let’s take a brief look as to why they should be best avoided.
The problem with soy: While it is true that soy beans provide a rich source of amino acids, it is equally true that all that glitters is not gold! In SVA, we know to look beyond the label to see a food’s ultimate effect on the doshas, tissues, physical channels, and vibrational channels. Soy is a major ‘channel blocker,’ consumption of which is suitable only by those doing hard physical labor day in day out – not at all suitable for the diet of the office or professional worker. Soy is also highly estrogenic and can promote many disturbances in the female physiology. To avoid such problems and to keep your channels open, steer clear of soy-based protein supplements.  
The problem with green peas: Peas and pea-based protein powders are mahavistambhi. Maha means ‘great.’ That is to say, peas are first-class channel blockers, even more so than soy. They will slow down your overall metabolic system, promote the production of toxins, or ama, and long-term cause many unwanted imbalances. For those who already experience joint pain or joint related conditions, they should avoid them by all means.
Whey or No Way?  Whey protein is a mixture of globular proteins isolated from whey, the liquid material created as a by-product of cheese production. Not only is it clogging to the channels, whey is very acidic. We know that our physiology needs good pH to be healthy. Eating whey provides protein but it will also unnecessarily introduce more acidity into the physiology. Plus, as a protein isolate, whey has lost the intelligence originally found in its milk source and has become a ‘dumb’ protein. Dumb foods (less prana) are hard to digest and likely to produce ama (toxins.) 
Did you know you can also enjoy Vaidya’s SVA Vegan Protein Powder with cooked vegetables. Chop and boil a zucchini squash, add a few leafy greens (kale, swiss chard, etc) or a handful or two of baby spinach leaves, throw in a carrot, etc. Then add your vetetables to your mixture of Protein Powder, in addition to a 1/4 tsp Mom’s Masala, some olive oil, Soma Salt to taste, and a squirt of lime. Blend and enjoy!

Ayurvedically speaking,
in ancient India, there is a long tradition of consuming dehydrated lentil powders blended in with different spices and added to water, along with some yoghurt, to rehydrate oneself in high heat temperatures. Inspired by this ancient ayurvedic tradition, and the needs of his clients, Vaidya Mishra introduced his SVA Instant Tridoshic Vegan Protein Powder. A nutritious, easy-to-use powder that can be made as a shake or smoothy with seasons ingredients, or used to sprinkle on cooked food such as rice, salads, or soups. Made from dry-roasted and pulverized kala chana (black chickpeas). In India, kala chana is a low-budget high-protein ingredient used in many delicious recipes. The laboring class in India is said to subsist on the affordable kala chana as their primary source of daily protein, especially in the north eastern states of Bihar, UP, and the Punjab as well.  
Nutritional overview of your Instant Vegan High-Protein SVAShake  
Kala chana is high in protein, low in fat. Besides building and maintaining healthy muscles, protein is needed to synthesize hormones and neuro-transmitters. Therefore, everyone can benefit from a quick supplement of high-quality protein in shake form. However, if you are a vegan, you can use this powder even more liberally as a shake or smoothy. You can sprinkle it on your food, to supplementing for the essential protein you may be missing from your diet. Kala chana also provides high amounts of dietary fiber needed to help lower cholesterol, regulate blood sugar, and provide healthy intestinal flora and bowel movements. Kala chana is also a good source of potassium and sodium: balanced source of potassium with low sodium. Kala chana is also rich in easy-to-absorb minerals and vitamins – especially iron, calcium and folate.

Delicious Instant Vegan High-Protein Shake Powder recipes
Your Instant Protein Powder is ready to eat. Almost. Even with all the processing, the liveliness of black chana is still there. However, with proper samyog (combination) and proper samskar (processing) the powder can be enjoyed by all constitutions and all types of agni – your body’s digestive power: 1) vishmagni (variable); 2) tiksnagni (sharp); 3)mandagni (slow); and 4) samagni (balanced).
