In fact, kicheree may well be the most perfect therapeutic recipe of all because it detoxifies the entire system, while kindling the body's digestive fires called '˜agni.' Unlike other fasts or restricted diets, following an exclusive diet of kicheree with the addition of some steamed or roasted seasonal vegetables mid-day, supplies all the bodies' nutritional needs and will cause no nutritional deficiencies. Complete with cooking directions.
