Sign Up for the Spring Cleanse
The rivers are swollen with snowmelt, and the sap is starting to run in the trees. All the moisture that was bound by freezing temperatures is now moving to clear winter stagnation. And for our bodies, spring is the optimal time for lightening and clearing. Accumulated heavy and dense qualities from winter must be broken down and burned up. The body’s needs for the rich foods of winter shifts to a desire for light, dry, simple foods that digest easily. Stroke the digestive fire and encourage the body’s natural cleansing this time of year with the pungent bitter, and astringent tastes found in seasonal greens, bright local berries, fresh ginger, turmeric, and spicy soups.
