Squash season is here! Who else is excited? As the weather slowly gets cooler and cooler, my body is naturally beginning to crave warmer and warmer; in all regards. Our bodies are pretty miraculous beings. I mean, they are so smart, they naturally know exactly what we need to balance out our external environment and adjust to new changes. It's remarkable.
So, with that, vata season has officially kicked in. The winds are picking up and the cold is setting in. With all of that, it's important to begin to stay grounded and warm. Always remember, we want to balance out the qualities of the specific doshas by incorporating the opposite into our lives. So warm, oily, slightly heavy--all of this is fantastic for our bodies.
Mother Nature naturally provides this for us in the types of vegetables that she produces this time of year. Root veggies are the best, as are winter squashes (think acorn, butternut, etc.)
This soup recipe is perfect for the autumn season. Warm and grounding, it's the perfect meal for breakfast, lunch, OR dinner! Enjoy this yummy dish.
Bon Apetit my friends!
Oh bananas. This fiber-full fruit is often neglected by many people as an all-too-common fruit. On the contrary, this fruit is so good for us. As we know, besides it being packed with potassium, bananas are great for your daily fiber consumption. Some even swear by its ability to promote healthy bowel movements for them.
From an Ayurvedic perspective. bananas are really great for vata, which subsequently is the season we are entering. The sweetness, along with the earthy and grounding qualities are the perfect fruit to consume during this time of year.
This SUPER simple recipe is great for the season, when you're craving a little something, without going crazy with the overly processed sugars. On top of that, the spices involved in this dish are great for this season as well--very warming and grounding all at the same time. There is no reason to say no to this tasty treat.
Enjoy this so good dessert, without feeling all the guilty feelings!
