Fall is Vata season through the lens of Ayurveda.
It is a time to eat warm grounding foods and to have all six tastes represented at each meal:
This means to focus on foods that are naturally in season at this time of year!
Sweet fall foods include pumpkin, squashes, root vegetables, whole grains (quinoa and amaranth are the most warming), pears, persimmons, apples, whole milk dairy and fresh dates or figs. Cook your squashes and your roots.
Salty fall foods are most important for the person who deals with a dry/cold vata imbalance. Water follows salt so salt in this context is meant to hydrate – specifically good salt: Celtic sea salt, Himalayan pink salt, Fleur de sel, etc. Salts that are not bleached or processed but are whole – and balanced by minerals that naturally occur alongside sodium in the earth. Salt is particularly warm and unctuous (lubricating) when taken in moderate amounts.
Sour fall foods include lemons, whole milk yogurt, apple cider vinegar, and naturally fermented foods like raw sauerkraut.
