Vata body-mind types gravitate toward liquid, cool and dry foods. But too much of a good thing can throw your whole system off-balance. Ayurveda recommends that you incorporate some rich, warm foods in your diet. In addition, try the following suggestions for a healthy Vata diet:
- Embrace olive oil! Drizzle it over bread, greens, and vegetables.
- Eat lots of foods that are sweet, sour and salty, to help offset your natural tendencies.
- Indulge in vegetables, fruits, basmati rice, spices and nuts.
