Sesame Oil is Hot : Finding Pitta

I felt like I was failing.  I just couldn’t make myself eat warm food any longer.  When I expressed my concerns in class, Beth and Susan suggested I might not be as vata as I had thought.  Susan took my pulse and said the left side was vata and the right side was pitta.  It seems that I was aggravating my pitta side while trying to pacify my vata side.  Susan suggested room temperature food rather than hot and almond oil rather than sesame … so I tried again.
