Welcome to my weekly blog. Glad you are here.
From salad to soup, Fall invites warming foods, colors, and tastes.
Ayurveda focuses on lifestyle in harmony with the seasons- following mother nature’s rythms. The dry quality of Fall invites warming foods such as kitchari, soups, including orange vegetables such as sweet potatoes and butternut squash, using oil on the body and inside the nostrils as I mentioned last week.
In the next two to three weeks it is especially important to take good care, to move from salad to soup and to get plenty of rest.
Kitchari, Ayurveda’s superfood is filled with protein from split mung beans and vegetables of your choice that are warming and grounding. The rice makes it a bit high in carbs so if that’s an issue you can opt for chicken soup, or vegetable soup.
Here’s a recipe for kitchari I often use from my studies at the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The fun piece is bringing warming colors into your space- colorful mums, orange yellow and red pillow prints, or a vase of colorful flowers in your workspace or dining space. The invigoration that comes from Fall colors is by far transforming to the eyes and heart!
Fall brings change, change of body and mind.
with fierce love,
