Hello Spring. What a spectacle! Gorgeous Super Moon in the sky last night to welcome the Spring Equinox and explosion of color on flowering shrubs and trees everywhere you look.
This is the perfect time for spring cleaning. As you pack away your winter stuff and prepare for a big household cleaning, pay attention to your body’s needs. Some people experience springtime fatigue, others are struggling with weight to put on during the winter months.
A vibrantly colored, nutrient-rich salad might work as an instant mood enhancer and could improve your general well being. Your body needs vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, fiber, and other active compounds. Just pick locally grown, organic ingredients, whisk a dressing with a cold pressed olive oil, and you are ready to go.
For my salad I picked organic baby greens and heirloom beets. A simple dressing made with freshly pressed grapefruit juice and cold pressed organic olive oil from the Isle of Crete, was just perfect for it.
Beginning of spring is an ideal time for a detox cure. Some nutritionists suggest a total fast, others are less radical and claim that a weekend juice cleanse is enough to bring your body back to a perfect health. Listen to your body and pick the strategy that suits you best. Be gentle and remember that nothing can sabotage your efforts as much as strategies that are too rigorous or too impractical to follow in your daily life.
