In the true spirit of Breakfast Cure, we are constantly looking for ways to make it easier and more convenient to eat a healthy breakfast. We know ordering individual flavors of our congees hasn’t always been easy enough to meet our standards. No longer! Introducing the new Quick Order page for the fastest shopping yet on our slow food site. We hope you like it.
Not So Nutty
We have been busy behind the scenes here at Breakfast Cure making some gradual yet exciting updates. Because so many people are very allergic to nuts, plus we’d have to chill all shipments to guarantee freshness, we’re pulling the nuts from all the flavors. Congee is meant to be a smooth and soothing meal anyway, and we like to encourage eating that way. Stirring in a spoonful of your favorite nut or seed butter will take care of that craving in a snap. We still add nuts from our own kitchens when we are feeling crunchy nutty. We’ve added and will continue to build our new serving suggestions page found at breakfastcure.com/yum/
Our flavors have been predominately vegan from the start. Now, we’ve decided to phase out butter completely. But we know from the teaching of Taoism and Chinese medicine that butter and ghee are calming to the mind, something we can all use right now! We are absolutely thrilled to have found Ahara Ghee. We started using their incredible ghee for our newest flavor, Karen’s Kitchari.
Like Breakfast Cure, Ahara Rhasa Ghee, affectionately known as iloveghee, is a small, women-owned business. Andrea Shuman is first and foremost an Eastern medicine practitioner, just like our founder, Karen Taylor. Andrea, however, is a practitioner of Ayurvedic medicine from India, a tradition with long-standing nutritional practices passed down primarily by women over thousands of years.
We are proud and honored to come together with Ahara Ghee by offering our products on each other’s sites.
In celebration, we are offering 5% off any order containing at least one product from each of us. Use code: CUREME at checkout. Expires January 20, 2021.
How to pair Ahara ghee and Breakfast Cure congee
- Throw a scoop of Chai Spice Ahara Ghee in with your Masala Chai Spice Breakfast Cure.
- How about some Vanilla Dream with a bowl of Apple Cinnamon congee?
- Brown Butter goes with just about everything. We’re thinking Pear-fection with Brown Butter ghee and an Astragalus Herbal Enrichment stir in, our newest product and fist of it’s kind!
- Sauté fresh vegetables of your choice in traditional ghee and serve atop any savory congee.
We love their logo and the ethos it represents.
The icon symbol of the logo represents the combination of the Five Classical Elements: Earth, Wind, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether. The top drop shape in the logo icon represents ghee’s role in tonification (building of tissues) while the bottom drop represents the opposite action of Purification (cleansing of tissues). Depending on the amount of ghee and the context in which it is consumed, it can take either opposing action. This “prabhav” or special property of ghee, continues to lead our intentions and process and is what makes ghee so special and different from other oils. The circle represents our embrace of and connection to the ancient cultures that inspire us, symbolized in the many small petals.
At Ahara Rasa, they are serious about making the best ghee possible. According to Ayurvedic text and principles, to be true GHEE, it must be cultured to get the health benefits of improved digestion and increased mental wellness, among others.
They carefully source the butter from farms with the highest animal welfare status and are the only ghee company to be Animal Welfare Certified® and Truly Grassfed®. They ONLY use cultured butter. Nearly all clarified butter, being sold as “ghee” in grocery stores, including Indian grocery stores, is NOT made from cultured butter, and therefore, may lack the benefits of true ghee.
Ahara Ghee is committed to the traditional process of ghee outlined in the Charak Samhita ( the ancient text of Ayurvedic Medicine). They are confident that these fastidious and specific rules by which they create their ghee make for a better tasting, healthier, and more medicinally viable ghee that you will feel in every cell and be proud to feed your family.
We both thank you for supporting artisanal food!
