It's fall and according to Ayurveda, this means that Vata Dosha is becoming aggravated.
Soothing Vata Dosha according to Ayurveda can be achieved by eating foods that have the opposite quality of Vata Dosha (cold and dry) which are warm and wet.
Here is a Vata Dosha Soothing, Ayurvedic Curry Vegetable Soup Recipe.
Feel free to omit any ingredients you find disagreeable.
But be careful about adding too many herbs to this wonderful dish unless you are familiar with Vata Soothing Herbal Formulation.
