Foods To Keep You Healthy This Fall

Making adjustments to our habits are important as the seasons change. To follow up DYLN Inspired's last blog post, 5 Yoga Poses To Keep You Balanced For Fall, we have compiled a short list of foods that should be included in your fall diet. To keep the autumn vata dosha in-check it is important to follow a routine. Eat three relatively big meals a day and avoid skipping meals or snacking while on the go. Since vata is drying, cooling and light, favor foods that are oily, warming, or heavy. DYLN Inspired can provide you with the yoga clothes you need for fall, but we also want to give you a list of some foods and practices to incorporate into your diet this fall to improve your health and well-being. Remember to choose organic as often as possible and support your local markets!  


Fats and oils

These are beneficial to the digestive system and help reduce vata. Use up to 3 teaspoons daily of extra virgin olive oil and add nuts to your diet for healthy protein and fat.

Grains

Rice and wheat are the best grains for balancing vata. Reduce your use of barley, corn, millet, buckwheat, and rye during the fall.

Fruits

Bananas, avocados, mangos, oranges, pineapple, dates, plums, melons, nectarines, and dried fruits are heavy, filling fruits and should be added to your fall diet.

Vegetables (cooked)

Raw vegetables should be minimized when balancing vata energy. Eat plenty of asparagus, beets, and carrots. Veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, and potatoes should be cooked in olive oil before being consumed.

Spices 

Cardamom, cumin, ginger, cinnamon, salt, cloves, mustard seed, basil, asafetida, cilantro, fennel, oregano, sage, tarragon, thyme, and black pepper are all spices that will add a kick to your cooking and should be consumed in the fall.

Dairy

Dairy products are okay to eat when balancing the vata dosha. It is recommended that they are heated before being eating to aid with digestion.
