One of my favorite teachings in my nutritional tool box is Seasonal Eating. There is perfection and wisdom to the foods Mother Nature provides for us at each season. There is magnificence to the way in which we need to nourish ourselves and when we awaken to that beauty and sacredness of eating our relationship with food elevates. When we eat the right seasonal foods and change our lifestyle accordingly, we maintain balance in our health –we actually prevent getting sick!
In Spring, it is essential to embrace pungent (radish, broccoli sprouts, kohlrabi,ginger), bitter (Swiss chard, dandelion greens, arugula, microgreens)and astringent (teas, burdock root, parsley, raw vegetables) tastes, to name a few, that help to stimulate metabolism, burn the excess body fat we accumulated throughout Winter and detoxify the liver. Our lifestyle in Spring also needs stimulation, excitement and change to help reset our energy and spirit.
Spring is nature’s New Year and it sets the nutritional tone for the rest of the year. It is is the most important time of year to change our diet and lifestyle because it sets our health up properly for the rest of the year. If we do not transition out of winter properly and in the right time and if we fail to take in the intentional seasonal foods and make a shift in our lifestyle, it is common to experience low immunity, stagnation, heaviness, fatigue, weight gain, toxicity and depression.Overtime this leads to even more imbalance, dis-ease and disharmony within the body, mind and soul.
Spring is all about reawakening, re-birthing, cleansing, purifying, and starting a new chapter in our diet and lifestyle. It is an exciting time! – A time to awaken the body, mind and soul, cleanse the systems, remove the winter veil and put the spring back into our step.
