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!
