Autumn harvest brings an abundance of hard winter squashes like pumpkins and Hubbards. Both of which are perfect for this warming autumn or winter breakfast. Consider serving with pan fried apples in maple syrup. Winter squashes actually correspond with the Earth element in Asian food energetics – meaning they are appropriate for all seasons and the transition of seasons. You can identify these foods by their ability to be stored in a simple, unprocessed form. Grains, lentils and legumes and hard fleshed squashed can hang out in your pantry for months! The Earth element foods are central part of the diet and anchor and nourish the digestive system, so if spring pops up and you still have a pumpkin rolling around, don’t hesitate to use that beautiful food up.
