Everyone can eat from the vata-reducing list if it is fall/early winter and they are healthy. You may also choose to eat from this list any time you need warming, grounding, stabilizing, comforting, or wetness in your body. This list can be medicinal for most people who have vata disturbances, like jetlag, gas, belching, dry skin, constipation and anxiety. Foods listed as “Best” can be eaten daily. All other foods listed can be eaten a few times a week.
Foods listed “Avoid” should be eaten only on special occasions.
