As we feel the seasonal change commence, the mornings becoming darker, the air crisper and pulling out our winter coats and hot water bottles, we need to nourish, ground down and keep warm. 

Our previous blog post is a guide to this seasonal change that is Autumn, with diet and lifestyle adjustments to make to ensure a happy and healthy transition into the new phase. 

Below we have a delicious and nourishing Conjee recipe from our beautiful Phoebe that will help balance our Yin and keep us feeling great. 

A great meal to share with a loved one!
