Eating whole foods every day helps keep you grounded. This means unprocessed foods with as little additives as possible. Root vegetables –beets, carrots, squash, etc. – being foods grown in the earth are excellent for helping you feel rooted to that earth. As with any fruits and veggie recipe, using ingredients that are in season is best.
