Vata Season – Winter Grocery List
It is Vata season, or at least in Texas, which translates into a cold, dry and sometimes windy weather. And we all know a lot about it this year! Here are some insights on the Vata season from the Maharishi Ayurveda website (www.mapi.com):
Vata season in general is from October through February, starting in most parts of the country when the weather cools off and leaves turn color and fall off the trees and ending with the onset of spring. Vata is associated with a windy, dry, and cold climate. As our external environment changes, it increases Vata in our own internal environment. This is when it is time to change our daily routines and diet so it is in tune with the physical changes in the environment. By living in tune with the natural laws of the season a sense of balance can be maintained and we will be able to build a stronger natural immunity against the bugs that tend to attack during colder weather.
During Vata season it is important to maintain regular routines of rest and activity and to eat warm and unctuous foods. If you already have a Vata imbalance, then extra attention to routine and diet are crucial during Vata season to avoid increased Vata imbalances such as restlessness, insomnia, constipation, dry skin, and worry.
And here’s a useful list of the foods you should favor to keep your Vata Dosha in balance, and keep yourself warm and healthy in general:
