It’s easy to understand why there’s so much anxiety around. Today’s world presents a lot of food for the anxious heart. I fall prey to it for sure. I’m anti-medication for anxiety and depression; it feels like a band-aid when what’s needed is a cure. But still we have to get through the days, right? Any calming help is a blessing. Herbs can be that help. Ashwagandha is a perfect example and there’s so much more to this Ayurvedic princess than soothing nerves. It’s like you hit a gold mine. To get the whole benefit of some herbs, ashwagandha being one, you have to eat them. It’s a rich source of iron, a mineral vital to so many functions including building strong blood, which in turn helps with our vitality. If you take ashwagandha as a tincture, you don’t get the iron. In India, the home of Ayurveda, it’s traditionally boiled in milk with molasses. This panna cotta is my variation on that with the addition of saffron and cardamom to blend the flavor and add their own vital benefits.
