Grounding Foods You Need For Fall

Nutrition

As the seasons change so should your diet. With cooler, breezy weather blowing in this fall, keep yourself focussed, grounded and healthy with these seasonal foods...

The idea of grounding foods stems from traditional Chinese medicine theories of the energetics of food - believing that each food has a unique energy that affects your body a certain way. This is different than calories or nutrients, it is about how what you eat affects all aspects of your life - your mood, your focus, your energy and your overall wellness. The quality of the energy of food you put in equals the quality of the energy you put out. Eating whole, unprocessed, healthy foods has a major impact on how you feel...

For many of us, fall is a time to get back on schedule and focussed. It is also time for our bodies to balance themselves with the cooler, lighter air. In the hot, humid days of summer we restore balance by eating cool, light foods. In autumn we need to shift that to warmer, grounding foods - literally foods that are dense and grown in the ground.

Root Vegetables

Beets, carrots, turnips, parsnips, turmeric, sweet potatoes, radishes, ginger, and garlic all have roots that reach down into the ground and therefore give you a more grounded, rooted energy and balance this season. Try simply roasting your favourite root veggies with olive oil and fresh ground sea salt and pepper. 

Clean, Plant Based Protein

Nuts, pumpkin seeds and lentils also offer a grounding and balancing energy to the body. Clean, organic protein provides healthy, long lasting energy to keep you focussed, warm and healthy - a perfect balance for the changing seasons. They can also help stabilize blood sugar, which balances the body and mind.
