Foods for your Spring Shopping list

How to Eat in Spring, According to Ayurveda
2min

A Season of Transition

The snow melts, more and more warmth is coming through. Greens start to appear. The land is muddy and heavy and wet.

Spring surly is the Kapha time of year, which means that the earth and water elements are taking over. It is the time that Kapha that's accumulated over winter warms up and begins to liquefy. Kapha turning liquid may become problematic for those of us prone to spring colds, sneezing and allergies.

However, Spring also offers us a wonderful opportunity to apply nature’s way of cleansing the body after the winter months.

But in order to cleanse ourselves we must first look at our food and what full us from the inside. Changing our diet is the first step to feel energetic and balance in any season, so here are our suggestions for SPRING.



Spring is the time of year to eat lean!

The ayurvedic way has always been about changing our diet according to the season in which we are in. For a long time, people have lived off the land and taken what nature has provided them with, according to the seasonal cycle. Rather than following a strict, low-fat, gluten-free, etc diet plan, Ayurveda is more concerned with ensuring you are eating the right food all year round. So for your diet, we are going to recommend to pile up on some lean, fresh vegetables and berries and cut off on the pasta, stews, meats, and cheese. In fact, spring and summer are the best seasons for eating vegetarian or vegan.

What to put on your Shopping list:

  • Red lentils and mung beans

  • Grains like millet, quinoa, and barley,

  • Chia seeds and Pumpkin seeds

  • Organic red grapes

  • Pomegranates

  • Berries, but do not overeat them

  • Spices like ginger and turmeric

  • Bitter Greens like: Kale, Chard, Collards, Sprouts or Asparagus

  • Light Veggies like: Cabbage, Cauliflower, Broccoli

Abhyanga - The Self Oil Massage

There is no greater expression of self-love than lovingly anointing ourselves from head to toe with warm oil—this practice is called Abyanga. The Sanskrit word Sneha can be translated as both “oil” and “love.” It is believed that the effects of Abhyanga are similar to those received when one is saturated with love. Like the experience of being loved, Abhyanga can give a deep feeling of stability and warmth.
