After a week in Chicago that was a creative infusion but perhaps not a body detox (oh I love you Chicago!) I wanted to start Spring feeling fresher and in a more plant-filled, vitamin-rich, hydrated state of mind.
Right now, the organic broccoli is steaming. I had a big banana nut-butter ice cream bowl (two peeled + frozen bananas, a tablespoon of nut butter, a tsp of natural vanilla and a few fresh dates in the vitamix = perfection!) earlier, and I started the day with sliced avocados and herbs. I’ve been swilling green tea mixed with peppermint and I’m about to boil up hot water for a cider-vinegar-honey-cayenne tonic before I head out to do a few important errands. I’ve been napping all day and I’m ready for a salt bath tonight with a few drops of rose geranium oil to make it x-tra fancy (though not needed, it’s awesome!)!
This is my kind of detox. Mostly plants, lots of tonics, big salads and a spectrum of nutrients.
Juice fasts and all kinds of extreme detoxes just don’t work for me.
As Spring moves into Summer, I will likely be getting into more raw salads, more and more melon breakfasts and piles of fresh berries and…
This is how Nature works, so I figured I would start following it. I feel better than ever.
Lighteing up a little and eating with the seasons is ancient wisdom.
The chart above has some unique ideas to make Spring even lighter- like watercress, greens, seeds… I can’t eat grains at all… but I’m excited about more fresh turmeric. Fresh lemons. Fresh garlic mixed with honey as a wellness tonic.
Spring cleansing for me is very simple—
Loads of fresh plant foods
Lots of easy kitchen tonics (even simple hot water + lemon)
Detox Baths in Salt
+ No negativity!
Nothing that involves starvation, over-doing it with extremes, deprivation, chemicals or any kind of rigor that feels intense; it doesn’t feel like it’s any kind of relief to be so full of stress on our bodies, you know?!
Here’s to a light, easy, refreshing Spring!
