The Sacred & Delicious Food List
A Complimentary Webinar with Vaidya Smita Naram

The Sacred & Delicious Food List is an addendum to the cookbook, Sacred & Delicious. Author Lisa Mitchell decided to distribute this comprehensive list of the foods through her website so that she would be able to update it more easily. These are foods found in most modern kitchens. The list organizes the foods into categories to reflect how they fit in your diet from an Ayurvedic perspective.

The free webinar with Vaidya Smita Naram that Lisa Mitchell is hosting will be held in the spring of 2019. Dr. Naram is one of India’s leading Ayurvedic pulse masters, herbal pharmacologists, and clinicians, and she has helped thousands of patients overcome serious health problems with the time-tested tools of Ayurveda. Lisa will conduct an interview with Dr. Naram about how to embrace an Ayurvedic diet and other health care approaches that have the potential to transform your health or to sustain optimal wellness. Here are some topics that will be covered:

  • Stories of people who have overcome serious health problems through modern Ayurveda— without taking pharmaceuticals
  • An in-depth discussion about how diseases take take root and evolve in the body from the perspective of Ayurveda.
  • A safe weight-loss plan that never leaves you hungry
  • Dietary recommendations to support chronic health conditions, including acid reflux, acne, headaches, back pain, perimenopause/menopause and more

My Favorite Things: Capomo

Today I’m introducing a new section of the Sacred & Delicious Blog called My Favorite Things, and I’m launching it with a yummy coffee alternative called Capomo! If you love the taste of coffee but have given it up for any number of excellent reasons, which I enumerate later, you’re in for a treat!

Capomo is the name Tattva’s Herbs gives this coffee alternative made from the maya nut, which they claim is one of “nature’s premier antioxidants.” That may be, but I love this drink just for its divine flavor! Want some “bliss in every cup”? Try Capomo!

You can make Capomo in a coffee pot, drip coffee maker, or with a Melita. I gave all of those kitchen gadgets up when I swore off caffeine, so I simply bring a few teaspoons of the powder to a boil with water, let it simmer for a few minutes, and strain it into a mug. I love it with a dash of stevia and freshly made almond milk—so simple if you own a Vitamix. Suit yourself; some folks prefer it black.

I gave up coffee more than 25 years ago because caffeine made my heart race and kept me awake at night. I had the same sad experience with coffee ice cream. Gastro docs advise patients who suffer from acid reflux or have ulcers to avoid coffee because of its acidity. Coffee is also said to counteract some homeopathic remedies.

From an Ayurvedic perspective, I think a cup of hot Capomo is ideal for vata and kapha types, who tend to be cold.  The maya nut is naturally warming, so I suggest that people with pitta problems drink it in moderation.

Capomo’s flavor is so similar to coffee I no longer feel deprived. It’s no wonder that this is the first of My Favorite Things!

Serves 1

2 to 3 teaspoons Capomo grounds
¾ mug water
¼ mug fresh almond milk (page 81 in Sacred & Delicious)
1 pinch Kal Stevia or ½ teaspoon coconut sugar (optional)


1. Combine the water with Capomo and bring to a boil in a sauce pan, letting it simmer for three to five minutes, and strain before serving. Or make a drip coffee with your favorite form of coffee maker.


2. Fill the mug about ¾ full with the hot drink. Add fresh almond milk or (if you prefer) soy or coconut milk or dairy. Or serve it straight up. Add sweetener, if you wish.


Drink with coconut milk to cool Capomo's heating quality. Sweetener is good.
