Spring is a time of renewal… of saying goodbye to the old and opening up to the new. The days are a little longer, the air is a little warmer, and new life is popping up everywhere. Letting go of the things in our lives that no longer serve or support us - whether it be relationships that drain us or excess items that create clutter in our homes and lives - can be challenging, but is always rewarding. It allows us to realign and prepare for the new season ahead.
With this shedding of the heaviness of winter and all of its comfort-driven eating, we get to welcome the spring harvest. It brings us green vegetables of every shade to detoxify our bodies and help us feel lighter from within. It’s the perfect time to remove any unhealthy habits that may have taken root and swing back into a cleaner eating routine.
With farmer’s markets in full swing again, and fresh produce readily available, spring is one of the easiest times of year to start incorporating more plants into your diet. Asparagus, peas, fennel, radishes, and spinach are just a few of the many highlights of the season. They all make excellent additions to your power plates and power bowls. They will boost your energy and health, while satisfying your taste buds.
