Prepare for Late Summer DrynessThere's nothing like the feeling of walking out of your house and catching that first hint of fall in the air. The body instinctively knows that change is happening. When the temperatures begin to drop in early August, the body prepares for fall by insulating the skin with fats. As fats are removed from circulation, the blood quickly dries out, which also dries out the skin and the bowels. To rebuild fats and sweeten up the blood, your body will crave heartier, fattier, & sweeter foods than in June or July. Early morning pancakes or homemade zucchini bread are appealing this time of year. You might find yourself pulling your cookbooks off the shelf and looking up recipes for some of your favorite fall and winter recipes.
Counter Balancing Cold FoodsAyurveda generally recommends against cold foods. Cold food shocks the stomach and reduces blood flow to digestion. Food loses some of its nutritional value when frozen. Cinnamon keeps digestion warm while the bananas are melting. A dash of cardamom can also make it more warming and tasty.

do you have any suggestions or alternative recipes if there is a nut allergy involved?
Cold foods are also forbidden. But, how does the ancient text help parents who break down and buy store bought ice-cream for their kids? The fact is that children will demand treats - and dietary purity itself leads to social isolation, etc that also damages agni. So, a middle ground (with complete disclosure) will be helpful for many parents, and that is the intention. Thanks for bringing up this important point!
