7 Quick Tips for October

  1. Eat More Seeds: Add more seeds to your diet in October. Seeds a great way to deliver the higher-fat, higher-protein, plant-based nutrients we need. To get started this month, start having 1 tablespoon of ground flax and chia seeds each day. Add sunflower and pumpkin seeds to your salads and veggies whenever possible.
  2. Raid the Garden, Farmer’s Market, or Grocery for Ripe, End-of-Summer Veggies: It’s important to get as much fresh food as possible from the garden this time of year. Give yourself permission to eat lots and lots of ripe veggies and, yes, it’s okay to eat those fruits as well.
  3. Increase Your Water Consumption: Try to drink 1/2 of your ideal body weight in ounces of water per day. This time of year, the accumulated heat will dehydrate us. As the brain often perceives thirst as hunger, we start eating.
  4. Boost Your Digestive Strength: Strengthening your digestion now will help you digest and process heavier foods this fall and winter. Try 1 capsule of both Warm Digest and Beet Cleanse about 15 minutes before meals with a full glass of water.
  5. Eat Apples, Pomegranate, and Watermelon: Eat 2-4 apples per day until the end of October to cleanse your digestive system, pomegranate to flush your lymph, and watermelon to cleanse your kidneys.
  6. Try an Ayurvedic Detox: Follow our easy, yet powerful, 4-day Short Home Cleanse or if you are looking for a deeper and more thorough cleanse, check out our 2-week Colorado Cleanse.
  7. Bolster Your Immunity: To stay strong and protected, take 2 caps each of Turmeric Plus and Ashwagandha in the morning. Children can take 1 capsule of each.
