Cooking for Winter

Winter is the season of kapha when the cold and heavy weather slows the pace of life. 

  • An excess of the Kapha  dosha leads to dullness, weight gain, mucus-related illnesses and negative emotions
  • Another aspect of winter is that the dry, cold weather aggravates vata which can lead to joint pain, indigestion, and other issues. 
  • Ayurvedic winter diet aims to pacify both vata and kapha.

Ayurveda teaches us to favour “sweet”, “sour” and “salty” flavours, and eat light, warming and nourishing foods in winter.


In the next Ayurvedic Kitchen workshop on Saturday June 5, Margie will be focusing on ayurvedic cooking guidelines and tips for the cold season. You will learn how to apply Ayurvedic principles to your winter diet by preparing two popular winter staples.

Sweet and Sour Pumpkin Curry is the perfect dish to help balance your body during the colder months. We will accompany the curry with a warming nutritious split moong dal. 

Don’t forget to bring your take-home container! Your dinner is cooked!
