With the summer holidays almost over, as we enter into late summer, there is a sense that things are slowing down in Nature and ourselves. Late summer is a time for deep nourishment in preparation for the coming colder months. Time to reap what we have sown earlier in the year and enjoy the fruits of our labour.
Always focus on eating seasonal produce to balance the energetics of the season, i.e foods that are hydrating and cooling, such as asparagus, celery, cucumber, courgettes, tomatoes, juicy fruits like watermelons, limes, grapes, figs, mango, berries, and salad greens. The body naturally craves these high water content foods as soon as the weather gets hotter.
