Marianne is sharing with Sophie how a change of weather seems to impact her mood and even her body. She gets very tired and runs out of energy.
Sophie explains some of the theories of Ayurveda. For example, if a person has a lot of air element and a strong wind is blowing, maybe some grounding is in order. That can be as simple as placing feet firmly on the ground.
People with lots of air element also tend to be cold. So, keeping warm and drinking warming drinks is important.
Did you know that even hot mint tea is cooling?
Try a mixture of cumin, coriander, and fennel instead. Or ginger tea is always a delight.
Our conversation touches on macrobiotics, fermenting and more.
If you search for Sandor Katz, many articles on fermentation and his journey will pop up. I highly recommend his books. You probably can get them at your local library. Or purchase them from an independent book store.
This is an excellent article comparing different fermentation lids for mason jars.
If you search for Gärtopf, many beautiful examples will come up for your viewing pleasure. Many articles are in German and of course, in the US the usual online order business comes up. The pot comes in handy if you have a huge garden and eat lots of fermented products. For purchase, I highly recommend buying from a smaller company.
An example of preserving food. Marianne was gifted a full bag of small, unripe peaches. She made different variants of green peach preserves with vinegar. In a month, we know how it turned out and will talk about it then.
