During winter, our digestive fire is focussed inward, and this the season that it is
the strongest. During winter, we tend to eat a little more, and the food tends to be a little heavier. Sound familiar? The body needs more fuel to stay warm and healthy during the winter,
igniting our digestive fire deep inside our bodies. Therefore our bodies can handle more substantial and nutritive meals to replenish and rejuvenate whatever was lost during the other seasons.
For most of us, winter dietary habits come quite naturally. But they should aim to decrease our kapha dosha without increasing our vata dosha. Generally, this will include warm, cooked, slightly
oily, well-spiced meals.
There isn't much harvesting going on when you live in a colder country. But keep in mind that sticking with whatever is at hand from nearby is always favored overproduce that has traveled
thousands of miles to reach your plate.
