Dr. John Douillard’s Spring Grocery List

Thursday, April 7th, 2016

Dr. Douillard is a chiropractor and an Ayurvedic practitioner in Colorado. I met Dr. Douillard when he came to The Kripalu Yoga Center in Massachusetts a couple of years ago and also reviewed his excellent book, The Three Season Diet. (link: https://www.menupause.info/archives/11109) With his permission I am posting his winter grocery list, which focuses on the Ayurvedic approach to one’s diet, based on your body type. It also is coordinated with seasonal foods. It’s how I eat now, so this list is helpful for me and maybe for you. (This will bleed into right hand margin.)

Spring Grocery List

(March – June)

 Eat more foods that are Pungent (Spicy), Bitter, Astringent / Light, Dry, Warm: such as flavorful steamed veggies, brothy soups, brown rice.

 Eat less foods that are Sweet, Sour, Salty / Heavy, Cold, Oily: such as fried foods, ice cream, heavy dairy, breads.

Curious about a food not on this list? Taste it. If it has 2 of the 3 spring tastes

(pungent/spicy, bitter, astringent), it is balancing. Prepare it in a way that is light, dry and/or warm.
