If you are of a Vata constitution or else have a strong Vata imbalance, then here is a chart that will help you to decide which food types to consume and which ones to avoid. Since Vata is related to the air and space elements in the body, these favorable foods will help calm the nervous system and reduce excessive fear, anxiety, gas, bloating and constipation. Vata is most agitated in the fall and early winter months, making these food guidelines most vital during this time of year.
Read my related post on a Vata Pacifying Diet to gain more insight on how to control symptoms of high Vata such as nervous system agitation, restless mind, insomnia, dry skin, gas and constipation.

Thanks!!! Best chart I’ve found. Makes my iife so much easier. Just discovered Vata Dosha and now everything is beginning to make sense.
Yay! I am so happy to hear this James! Ayurveda does have a funny way of breaking things down to our basic common sense. Feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions.
I wish you the best on this journey:)
PS… Most of the information in this chart comes from Dr Vasant Lad’s book, “Textbook of Ayurveda Vol 1”.
This is probably one of the best charts out there. ~ZSUZSA
