Ginger Butternut Squash (or Carrot) Soup

Kaphas/Spring body types should make the carrot soup as butternut squash is too sweet for them. Butternut squash and carrots are both good for the Pittas/Summer and Vatas/Winter body types. The other point of focus is which oil you choose to use, it depends on your dosha. Lastly, if your Pitta is aggravated (you’re burning, super inflamed), skip the onion and the ginger which are too warming for Pittas, instead use cinnamon and fresh coriander leaves, more cooling.
