Bridging summer to fall with soup. Fall is a key seasonal transition for most people. Its dramatic and colorful shift can leave us feeling anxious, ungrounded, and yeah, even constipated. Learn how to flow into fall and keep Vata balanced using food as medicine. Soup is good food as it's easy to digest and a healthy comfort food.

  • Fresh tomatoes, depending on the type and size, about 6-10 tomatoes.

  • 2 cups butternut squash, but let’s be flexible, any winter squash will work such as acorn, sweet dumpling, kabocha, delicata, and striped spaghetti are all available in August

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 6 carrots peeled and chopped

  • 3-6 fresh garlic cloves (less for Pitta, more for Kapha and Vata)

  • ¼ cup + olive oil or your best oil listed in your food program

  • Your Saumya sweet churna, as much as you like (or ½ teaspoon dried ginger, ½ teaspoon turmeric)

  • For those with a fresh herb garden some of these!

  • 3-4 cups of broth

  • 1 cup milk (non-dairy, dairy, unsweetened milk of your choice)

  • 1-2 teaspoons Hawaiian red salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

1. Chop those veggies. I like to place the squash on towel or stick cutting mat to avoid cutting myself.

2. Add olive oil to your pot.

3. Sauté onion and garlic.

4. Then add tomatoes. (For those with higher Pitta or Pitta symptoms such as heartburn, skip the tomatoes.)

5. Add spices.

6. Add the squash and carrots.

7. Pour in the broth.

8. Cook until it’s all nice and soft. (Depending on the squash and your elevation, pot, and cooking source, about 30 minutes.)

Once it’s soft, move it to a blender or use an immersion blender.

Find your favorite fall soup bowls, ladle it up and garnish with roasted pepitas (or sunflower seeds) and cilantro.

notepad saying client testimonials

“Saumya Ayurveda has helped me beyond my expectations! Veena is a wonderfully astute and thorough practitioner of Ayurvedic medicine's healing principles and therapies. She is exceptionally intuitive and empathic and can "see" my body and accurately assess my ailments and condition through virtual visits. She can quickly determine courses of treatment for my health concerns that have produced excellent results for my body and mind.

I have received treatments for chronic fatigue and pain, dry skin, brain fog and more. I am 59 years old, and my body and mind are gradually wearing out. The Ayurvedic formulations, along with Veena’s specific instructions are slowing my aging process and bringing my body and mind back into good alignment.

I have vastly improved with Veena’s care. I will continue to trust Veena and her clinic with my health concerns even before consulting "traditional" health care providers. She has been of immense value helping me alleviate chronic health issues that my regular doctor could not. I would highly recommend Saumya Ayurveda to everyone! -– Paul Kellett, St. Paul, Minnesota


“It is with great pleasure that I write this review! Working with Veena has remarkably changed my life – even in the places I was unaware that it demanded to be changed! Throughout the course of four months, Veena’s gentle and succinct approach allowed me to easily refine my routines into a more structured foundation that left me feeling more in graceful governance with myself – emotionally and physically.

Not only had she brought forth awareness in how I prepare/relate to the food I eat, but she also prescribed me wonderful herbs to help calm my anxiety, detox my liver, and heal the ugly night sweats I’ve been experiencing due to hormonal imbalances.

Lastly, her guided meditations are a great grounding force, and I have since continued to explore the euphoric benefits of Yoga Nidra.

Veena is a well of divine knowledge, and her humor and light will be eternally appreciated!”

--Rachel Monson, Wisconsin
