Autumn is a time of harvest where we reap the benefits of our bountiful summer. It is also a time when we eat nourishing, warming and juicy foods. As the weather gets cooler our internal digestive fire gets warmer and it is important to keep the fires gently burning. These simple, tasty and Ayurvedic recipes are a great addition to any culinary catalogue.
Having more fresh light, sweet, bitter and astringent foods in your diet can help balance out the heat and some of the dampness that we face in autumn. It is also advisable to have salty, sour and pungent foods in moderation.
Using local, organic fresh produce and whole foods is the key to the integrity of food, where it’s grown and how it is grown has a huge impact on our wellbeing.
