I have been having such a blast doing a kitchari cleanse with all of you this week! If you haven’t shared in on the fun on instagram or Facebook, come play! I’ll be hanging out on Facebook all week answering your questions and supporting you along the way.

Not sure what a kitchari cleanse is or what the heck I’m talking about? If you’re interested in how kitchari can help you feel lighter, calmer, and clearer in 5 days, check out my bonus resources page that includes a link to my webinar and lots of great recipes!

So today I am sharing with you a fantastic breakfast option that can be made anytime you are feeling low in energy or immunity or if your digestion seems a little “off” – or use it as a way to start each morning during your kitchari cleanse!

This is a simple, soupy rice dish called kunyit (turmeric rice) that will help you feel grounded and nourished while gently cleansing your digestive system and removing toxins.

It is super simple to prepare. Here are the ingredients and directions. Also if you want to hop on the kitchari cleanse, even if just for 1 or 2 days, be sure to hope over to my Facebook page and share your journey with us using #kitcharicleanse!






How to make Kunyit


1 1/2 cups water

1/4 cup white basmati rice

1 Tablespoon chopped fresh ginger root

1/4 teaspoon turmeric

1/8 teaspoon rock salt

1 teaspoon ghee (ghee is another name for clarified butter. You can buy it at your local health food store or learn how to make your own here! Vegan? Try using coconut oil or sesame oil, or leaving the oil out.)



Put all ingredients except ghee and salt in a soup pot or pressure cooker and boil/simmer until rice is soft. Add water as needed to keep it a soupy consistency. If digestion is very weak make it more soupy, if stronger or if you will be having a very physical day make it thicker.

When it is done, add ghee and salt and enjoy warm.

    Hey Krissy, I have started kitchari cleanse on monday. My third day and its going good. The soupy dish is nice and I can’t say I am very bored of it. I’s tasty and soothing. Going to try and eat this kitchari till friday. 🙂 Thank you for sharing other varieties and alternatives too. Tomorrow I will try to bake apples in ghee for breakfast (saw it on instagram or facebook post). Keep inspiring us!

      Great to hear from you Ildika! So happy that the kitchari cleanse is going well. Warm apples and ghee is SO good. You just need to slice them, put them in a frying pan with ghee and some cinnamon and/or cardamom if you like and then pour some hot water in and cover for a minute or two. Enjoy your cleanse and keep in touch!! xoxo
