Spring Detox

Every year when the trees begin to bloom and that spring green sprouts up everywhere, I get excited for Spring Cleaning. And not just my home...my body craves it! It wants light, clean refreshing drinks to flush all the sludge from winter. Think about it; do you eat many salads or drink many smoothies in the winter? Probably not. Because if we are eating with the seasons, then you are likely eating root vegetables, meats, soups and stews because that is what's available to us in winter and honestly, cold foods don't warm us up. Warm foods do! As we step into Spring, take time to gently clear out the old and bring in the new. Start with a Gentle Spring Detox and start brightening up your home and your meals.
