Baked Apple Slices

Posted by Lala Naidu on

According to Ayurveda, at the end of each season, there will always be an accumulation of the properties of that season. For example, at the end of winter, the body becomes more cold and dry. At the end of spring, the body is more prone to congestion. And now, at the end of summer, the body will potentially overheat or dry out.

At the end of summer, growing up in Denmark, we would harvest and eat apples in abundance, apples are natural heat-removing purgatives. To help clear the heat of summer, consider eating a daily apple over the next 1 month. Stewed or baked apples are simple to make and delicious with warm oatmeal or yogurt.
