Vata Season

This fall, we are all excited about crisp sweater weather, a break from the heat and a change of pace.

According to the wisdom of Ayurveda, “Fall also brings a predominance of Vata—the air element according to Ayurveda—which has the following qualities:

Rough

Windy

Erratic

Cool

Light

With so much change occurring around this time of year, it’s best to incorporate lifestyle choices that encourage a sense of grounding and warmth, especially when it comes to food.” (The Chopra Center

When it comes to our nutrition, it is important to see balance with the foods we choose and the season we are in. With this season of “air” you may experience more stiffness and a restless mind. In the same way that we find harmony in the heat during Pitta season (Summer) with light, fresh foods, we balance the Vata season with warmth. In this balance we will find more a grounded mind body and spirit.  

This is a season for soups, rich spices and root vegetables. 

Here are some foods to add to your grocery list for Fall: 

Cooked fruits
Ghee
Butternut squash
Sweet potatoes
Beets
Nuts
Avocado
Bananas
Mangoes
Dates (fresh)
Plums
Pumpkins
Root vegetables
Hearty grains
