We are one moon cycle away from spring. It is time to start eating foods that are lighter, brighter, and cooked a bit more quickly. Ayurveda tells us that this is kapha, or earth, season. It is a time to get grounded and to do our best not to get stuck.
Whenever we cook and eat, we gain yet another opportunity to attune to the season, breathe deeply and relax. May this recipe inspire a new cooking wave for you. If you would like support with recipes and meal plans, take a look at my custom healthy cooking guide here.
Thanks to Rebecca Wood for this recipe inspiration!
