Food for PITTA
Pittas do best on cool, uncooked foods. So the Pitta couple can have lots of salads, raw vegetables, and fresh fruits and be very healthy. Pitta’s digestion is very good, and especially so midday when Pitta is at its peak. It is favorable for the largest meal of the day to be eaten around noontime. Pittas should never skip meals.
Basically, the foods that Pittas should avoid are the ones that are too spicy or too salty. Pittas can be at risk for ulcers, and should avoid anything too acidic. Alcohol and smoking are two of the most Pitta aggravating things and should be avoided at all costs.
Pittas are frequently thirsty and should always have water or fruit juice handy. Cool drinks are good, especially during the summer.
Basic rules for the Pitta Diet:
- Choose cool or warm, but not very hot foods.
- Avoid salt, oil (particularly fried foods), and spicy foods.
- Avoid sour foods like pickles, yogurt, and cheese. Use lemon or lime juice instead of vinegar on salads.
- Avoid red meat.
- Eat an abundance of salads and vegetables.
- Avoid coffee and alcohol.
