If your digestive element is Fire, here are some suggestions for building a BYG menu that balances you! Simply click on the title of the recipe to view it in detail. From there, you can print it out or write down the ingredients to create your grocery list.

Remember, excessive eating (especially spicy/salty foods) and drinking alcohol are a sure way to create more heat and inflammation. Work on incorporating more cooling foods and reducing dehydrating beverages like caffeine and alcohol to help support your natural high-energy self. Moderation is not a dirty word. Cultivate it! 

The key to balance for you is to calm things down a bit. Build some free time in your day. Perhaps put it on the schedule so you begin to make a habit of not “doing” all the time! Make sure you have regular meals even if it means taking snacks along with you as you move through your day.
