With the start of the school year and the Labor Weekend, Summer is officially over. While some of us who love sunshine and the heat are mourning the end of our favorite season, others can’t wait for the cooler weather to set in.
Whichever you prefer, with the change of the season, our diets also need to change according to the rhythm of Nature. With cooler temperatures, the body naturally would prefer and need warmer food. Consider switching from raw food such as salads to cooked food. Vegetable or bone broths are a good choice to increase the “yang” energy of your body and prepare it for the cooler season.
How about a brown-rice ramen noodle broth with grassfed beef meatballs, bokchoy and carrots? Great for Types O and B.
Or how about the following vegetable broth, with Swiss chard, carrots, beet and zucchini–fine for all blood types?
While students go back to school this month, for those of us who are not “in school,” why not think of September as a mini January. Let’s start afresh with our intentions and try to learn something new from life, shall we?
When it comes to learning, one thing I have realized is that we can’t truly learn anything new and incorporate it in our lives without stepping out of our comfort zone and breaking our usual routines.
I’d like to give you three questions to think about:
- What are you intentions for your health this month?
- What would you like to learn in terms of healthy eating and self-care that you haven’t learned before?
- How would you bring about change?
Please share with your fellow health seekers in my private Facebook community. Sharing your intentions and goals with others is a good way to hold yourself accountable and track your progress.
I look forward to seeing you in my FB private group.
