within your body so I'll start with a brief overview of the pitta doshaand what the kind of qualities and everything that it carries I'll give youa brief overview of the preferred taste of the pitta dosha and then I'llgo into the specific food list that you should be consuming for optimal healthif you're a pitted dosha or dealing with any imbalances so the pitta doshaoverall it's made up of fire and water those are it's natural elements so thequalities that it carries from that are very sharp they're firey they're oilybecause that moisture and this can lead into physically someone with a moderateshape they can have a bit of a red undertone moderate features all aroundbut they'll have those sharp angles because they have that sharp qualitiestheir face will be a little bit more angular their digestion will be reallyquick because there's so much fire in the body so just kind of ignites andkeeps it going their personality can be somewhat intense they can deal with kindof like that hotheadedness they can deal with anger and jealousy but they're veryfocused they're goal-oriented and they're very going to the direction typeof people so when they consume their food theywant to bring in those balancing elements so pitta dosha is made up offire and water so it's got very hot hot sharp qualities so the opposingqualities that you want to bring in are cooling effects you want to bringcooling and grounding in because the pitta dosha is very light it's flowingbecause that fire you want to ground it down and cool it off that's the biggestthing you want to cool the pitta dosha off so the preferred taste for the pittadosha or the sweet taste you want to focus on the astringent and the bittertaste these three tastes are favored for the pitta dosha the sweet taste isreally good because it's made up of earth and water so it carries a lot oflike heavy dense qualities and the sweet taste is very cooling and it hasanti-inflammatory benefits so those type of foods kind of cool off the pittadosha and the pitta dosha is so prone to inflammation that the sweet taste cankind of bring that in and counteract those imbalances if you have them rightnow if you're dealing with any anger you get kind of really hot you need to coolyour body off by incorporating the sweet heavy dense taste so you can groundyourself have a mango or a coconut they're both cooling and kind of groundsyou back down the other taste is the bitter taste and the bitter is made upof air and ether so there's a lot of wind moving on this actually purifiesthe blood so this taste is really good for the pitta dosha because the pittadosha rules the rakta dhatu and that blood so having that bitter taste isactually going to cleanse and purify the blood which is really good because theymade in clear channels and then the last taste that the pitta dosha favors is theastringent taste and that's made up of air and earth so it's stable but it alsohas that air and kind of that ground that moving element so things likelegumes are really good for the astringent taste and they'll kind ofhelp the keep moving but gain some stability at theexact same time the three tastes that you want to avoid / limit if you're dealingwith a pitta imbalance or you're just a pitot dosha in general are the sour thesalty and the pungent taste the salty taste this is hugely aggravating for thepitta dosha because it's made up of the exact same elements so like increaseslike that fire and water adding more fire and water that's only going tohugely aggravate the pitta dosha the pungent taste is very aggravatingbecause this has so much fire in it it just is too burning too hot for thepitta dosha you want to cool it off with those opposing elements and then youhave the sour taste and that again holds that fire element so it's too hot tooacidic for the pitta dosha and can cause inflammation so you want to avoid thosetaste so for pitta dosha you want to focus onthe sweet the bitter and the astringent taste however you still need all sixtastes ideally incorporated into each meal butyou do need a full rounded balance so even if you have an imbalanceincorporating just a little bit of the other elements are necessary throughoutyour day to have that full rounded balance but you want to focus on thesweet the astringent and the bitter taste so if you have like a big liketaco bowl you want to focus on those three preferred taste by adding in moreof those elements and more of those taste and only adding a little of thenon-preferred taste just to have a full rounded fully ayurvedic six tastes.
