Autumn is ruled by the vata dosha. In ayurveda diet and lifestyle for your constitution (prakruti) and any imbalances you may have (vikruti) are recommended but also adjustments are recommended to be made for the season. Because the vata dosha rules autumn ayurveda recommends keeping this dosha balanced by doing things to pacify it (sooth it). Such as eating porridges for breakfast and soups, warm foods and bread without yeast (as this causes wind) dhals, steamed vegetables, basmati rice with added ghee for lunches (eat at 12pm) and dinners (eat at 6pm) and having a nap in the afternoon helps sooth vata.
Herbal teas such as – CCF tea (coriander, cumin and fennel tea) and ginger, cinnamon and clove tea is good to take to improve digestion.
