Cauliflower & Butternut Squash Soup {Recipe}

I have the perfect treat for you today -- a warming, creamy and very delicious soup loaded with anti-inflammatory nutrients and immune-boosting compounds: ginger, garlic, healing Ayurvedic spices, as well as a large dose of vitamins A and C.

This is one of my favorite chilly-weather recipes as it is very grounding and helps to build heat in the body. It is ideal for people who have a Vata imbalance. According to Ayurvedic medicine, Vata is the constitution made up of the air and space elements.

An imbalance in Vata can cause too much air to accumulate in one's body and mind manifesting in unpleasant and oftentimes debilitating symptoms like anxiety and insomnia, but also indigestion, bloating, gas, as well as joint pain and inflammation. Vata tends to get out of balance in the winter and spring as the weather is cooler and the wind (air movement) is strong.

Even if you don't think you have an imbalance, but want to nourish your body and feel some warmth and comfort this time of year, this recipe is for you. It will provide a whole lot of support for your immune and digestive systems; not to mention, it is absolutely delicious!
