Healthy Dieting & Digestion Made Easy with Ayurveda
|Home | Learn Ayurveda | Eating for the Season|
Spring - Mid-February - Mid MayThe spring is a watery season of warming temperatures. Snow melts making the rivers full and muddy. Warm temperatures encourage tender young sprouts and sweet sap to run in the vasculature of maple trees. Our internal landscape reflects mother nature's. Spring is a time of cleansing and renewal. Kapha fat melts away from tissues, along with toxins, and into the blood, making the blood sweet. Blood plasma and toxins are our metaphorical maple syrup and muddy river, releasing a flood of mucus in allergy season.
Summer - Mid-May to Mid-AugustHot, humid weather destroys the appetite and aggravates Pitta-Kapha rashes, irritability, and lethargy during early summer. By mid-July the body quickly dries out aggravating Pitta-Vata rashes, constipation, insomnia, and seasonal allergies.
Autumn: Mid-August to Mid-NovemberCooling temperatures pull blood inward to the core as the body scrambles to protect itself from heat loss. The extremities lose access to blood and warmth, drying out the skin on the arms, legs and eventually the colon. The core of the body rich with blood, conversely, improves appetite just in time to nourish and insulate the skin with a fresh layer of fat.
Winter: Mid-November to Mid-FebruaryDeeply cold temperatures cause cravings for rich, fatty, heavy foods from mid November through January 1st. As temperatures bottom out, cravings switch from fatty foods to ferments, including wines, sauerkrauts, and vinegars in January.
