There is an app that goes along with that chart, to help you track how you are doing each day. I downloaded it and am going to give it a shot.
So far, today is not going well. All I've had is some water and an 8 oz can of Coca-Cola Life

Eating for me at this time of the year is tough. one might call this the "Pitta-Vatta" season. More on that in a second...

But i often crave really heavier foods, comforting foods, and grounding foods. Its cold and snowy and super windy. Additionally, the town gets really quiet and outdoor activities are limited. This is why i recently purchased a spin bike to use at home.

If i were to follow the wonderful intelligence of my girlfriend, my diet should look like this:

In late fall, the Vata dosha becomes the most pronounced. During this time, it is important to balance Vata with foods and fluids that promote warmth, moisture, and grounding—namely those that are sweet, heavy, oily, spiced, or salty.

Recommended foods:

Fruits:
Banana, avocado
Cooked apples or pears, such as in pies, crisps, or apple sauces
Apple butter or pumpkin butter
Tomatoes
Citrus, including oranges and grapefruit
Vegetables:
Vegetables should be steamed; avoid raw vegetables during this season
Spaghetti or acorn squash, sweet potatoes, potatoes, yams, turnips, pumpkin
Grains:
Wheat, rice, oats
Nuts
Most whole nuts, nut butters such as peanut butter or almond butter
Fats/Oils
Ghee, olive oil, butter
Spices
Focus on warming spices such as cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves
Warm fluids, such as ginger, lemongrass, or mint tea
Fluids should be consumed at room temperature or warmer. Avoid cool fluids, which quell an already sluggish digestive system
Proteins
Animal meat or jerky
Fish
Eggs
Lentils
Mung beans
Soy—tofu, edamame
A word on beans:

Beans are high in Vata and are generally “wind generators,” though they are an important dietary staple in many vegetarian diets. If consumption of beans is necessary for you during fall and winter, reduce their Vata qualities by rinsing them well and soaking/cooking for an extended amount of time. Season well with warming spices.


yet, all i want right now is maybe a burrito

I still have not eaten a goddamn thing. My alarm went off at 9:15 this morning, so I didn't even sleep in that much.
