Spring is the first season of the year, and represents youth with the tender young plants and the signs of new life all around. It is a time of new beginnings, reflection and ascending out of winter’s slumber. We rise early with the sun, start to become more active and naturally cleanse. Plants start pushing their way upwards and the sight of green nourishes the soul.
In the spring, we naturally eat less, and sometimes even fast in order to cleanse the body of the fats and heavy foods of winter. Our diet should be the lightest of the year and contain foods that energetically are ascending and expansive. These include young plants, like baby carrots, beets, turnips, fresh greens and sprouts.
