If you have occasional constipation, be sure to cleanse the bowels by eating fruits, vegetables and grains with fiber. Try eating a stewed apple or pear with prunes or figs each morning for breakfast. By cleansing the bowel, you maintain the digestive fire and enhance digestion and assimilation. This is an excellent breakfast for people with Sadhaka Pitta imbalance, and Prana and Vyana Vata imbalance. Sweet lassi (a drink made by blending ¼ cup yogurt and ¾ cup water along with honey) is also good for people with weak digestion.
