Pimp Your Porridge: Our Favourite RecipesTips & Tricks
The seasonal shift into Autumn can show up in our mind and body – dryer skin, lower immunity, soreness in joints, getting sleepy earlier and waking up later and maybe even experiencing lower mood as the daylight lessens.
The cold, dry and dark qualities of Autumn can be balanced with consuming plenty of nourishing practices, just think about the opposites of these aspects: Find warmth – stoke your internal fire with a strong Power Flow. Eat warm foods with spices and oil. Stay hydrated with warm liquids like broths, herbal teas and warm water.
