How Can Coconut & Sweet Potato Soup with Nettles Make You Feel Great?
As you look forward to the warmth and joy of celebrating with family, chances are you might also be feeling worn out from all fun & celebrations. When the holiday season has you feeling depleted and frayed, this soup is an excellent tonic for your mind and body. Coconut milk soothes your nerves and calms your mind when it feels scattered.
Cool Your Blood
If you find yourself caught up in intense, reactive emotions, this recipe is exceptional for cooling you down. Coconut is prized for its ability to soothe irritation and fiery emotions. In Ayurveda, fiery outbursts come from Pitta flaring up in your blood, and often a depleted, overtaxed liver. Like most orange foods, sweet potato contains beta carotene that reduces Pitta and heat in the blood, while also providing relief to the liver.
Nurture Your Body, Build Your Strength
During this chilly season, sweet potato is the ultimate comfort food - deeply nourishing with its natural sweetness, while still light and easy on the digestion. The bright, warm color of the rich flesh indicates its ability to warm and strengthen tired bodies while also gratifying unruly food cravings. The rich, nourishing qualities of coconut work on the body from the inside out, leaving your body and skin feeling hydrated and smooth, while boosting the endurance of your immune system.
Greens: How Much is Safe?
Lean, Vata body types should exercise caution with greens in the fall. When cold weather moves in, a salad could actually deplete your strength. Nettles is the perfect exception to this rule, giving your body a chance to enjoy a well-balanced meal, without compromising your strength. Nettles provide a stellar nutritional profile to build stamina. Altogether, this recipe is a powerful way to fortify your body for those tough winter days.
