Spring will shortly be upon us. So what to eat to keep our bodies healthy and in alignment with this season? Let’s find out…

Spring is manifested by growth, seen in the flowers and leaves, and movement – plenty of wind. Spring is also associated with the Liver, so foods that help support the Liver and it’s affinity for growth and movement in the body are ideal.

Sour foods such as lemons and olives are good to include in ones daily regimen as are foods from the ‘wood’ phase (again associated with spring and the Liver) which are green in colour such as parsley, spinach, celery, a little more fresh foods such as salads and sprouts.

Try to avoid hot and fatty foods such as deep fried foods that put a strain on the Gall bladder and Liver functions.
