How Can This Ayurvedic Recipe Make You Feel Great?


Tangy Cranberry Sauce with Orange and Ginger puckers your lips and enlivens your tastebuds. Sweet, tart, and lively, this sauce adds color and zing to your holiday table. Pungent ginger brings spicy excitement to traditional cranberry sauce. No Turkey Dinner is complete without this mouth-watering, vivacious dish.

Too Tired After Turkey?

This year add another helping of your Thanksgiving turkey. When you've overdosed on triptophan (the chemical in turkey that makes you sleepy), the sour tart taste of cranberries refreshes your mind and stimulates your palate with a gush of saliva and juiciness. Did you know sour is the "juicy" taste? From saliva to the skin, from your liver to your GI tract, sourness triggers your body to produce saliva and floods all your glands with juiciness. Digestive juices aid your body in protein digestion. The result, cranberries help your tummy tackle the turkey.

Digesting Fats for the Holidays

Sour taste increases bile production from the liver. Bile breaks up fat into little tiny bits that are easier to digest, a process called emulsification, helping your body manage an overload of rich Thanksgiving yumminess. Cranberries in particular promote good cholesterol. Orange zest stimulates metabolism and reduces stomach stagnation - effective for moving the 'bomb' in your stomach after a hearty Thanksgiving meal.

Sour Detoxifies the Blood

By flushing bile, sour taste assists the liver in detoxifying the blood. You can experience this detoxification as relaxation and refreshment of the eyes. The eyes are the window to the liver and relax whenever toxic liver heat is released from the body. Cranberry is high in antioxidants which detoxifies free radicals. It is also rich in beta-carotene, a liver restorative and blood alterative.

Juicy or Dry?

If the roof of your mouth is rough and dry after drinking cranberry juice, you've experienced astringent taste, one of the six fundamental tastes in Ayurveda. Astringent taste tightens and tones tissues. It is cooling and reduces inflammation. However, astringency is also drying, and will aggravate people with persistent dryness.
Cranberries are an astringent fruit. Their astringency helps them balance the dampness of their natural habitat: the swampy cranberry bog. Despite the gush of saliva from their sourness, cranberries are a strong diuretic and ultimately dehydrating. This recipe includes a sweetener, which reduces cranberries' astringency somewhat. Pungent ginger opposes the cold quality of the cranberry, warming the flavors and making the sauce digestible for all.


Zesty, tangy, and bursting with red freshness, cranberries evoke autumn hues and celebration flavors. Sour, sweet, and spicy, this sauce adds color and zing to the holiday table.
