Refresh Your Body and Mind with Spring Foods

Spring is a time for renewal and rejuvenation. Our ancestors used this time to eat cleansing foods to get ready for the hot summer weather. Nature provides foods such as sprouts, berries, leafy greens, asparagus, chard, and dandelion greens to help enhance the body’s natural detoxing processes.

During this time it is also important to reduce heavy, warming foods such as dairy, excess protein and grains. These foods are great for keeping your body warm in the winter, but do not do well in the spring and summer.
