As the fall crisp turns to a cold sting it’s natural to reach for a coat in an effort to protect the body from the elements, to do so the earth gives us wool, leather and cotton. For the same reasons the earth provides materials to make a coat, it also produces fall foods and herbs which cleanse, warm and thicken the blood because they contain the proper amounts of vitamins, minerals and salt to do so. Not following these natural rhythms with ones diet is like wearing a swimsuit to run errands in during january, the results would be devastating since its purpose is to cool down the body, instead of warming and strengthen it for January’s harsh conditions. Choosing to partake of the earth's natural diet strengthens the body, gladdens the heart and enlivens the soul by giving it what is needed for it to function at it’s optimal level all year long!
