Ayurvedic Nutrition in Autumn

Vata | Autumn | Ayurveda Parkschlösschen Health Blog

In autumn, it is particularly recommended to eat a strengthening and balancing Vata diet.

Warm and vitamin-rich foods as well as sweet, bitter and astringent spices help to balance the metabolism. You can eat more hearty and rich food in autumn. If the food is too light, the strong digestive fire Agni can unbalance the Dosha Vata. You should therefore favour anything in your diet that has a calming and regulating effect on Vata.

In any case, favour warm and nutritious foods, dairy products (except yoghurt), nuts, chicken soup, meat (in moderation) and freshwater fish. Soaked dried fruit is also particularly recommended.

Vata-reducing vegetables

Artichoke, cucumber, green beans, carrot, pumpkin, parsnip, radish, beetroot, sweet potato, courgette
