I was recently reading over at Healthful Pursuits, a blog written by Leanne Vogel, a holistic nutritionist. She talked about her spring cleaning routine for the body and I completely agree with her that it’s easiest if you start now with a light cleanse then transition to a lighter spring diet.
As she puts it, “We’ve been hibernating in our houses, eating earthy vegetables, and surrounding our organs with extra TLC, it’s perfectly normal and expected to gain a bit of weight in the winter!” So it makes sense that spring would be the perfect opportunity to awaken our body, mind and spirit.
She’ starts off her cleanse with a yummy recipe for fruit and nut balls that are made with cashews, lemon zest, and dates (think homemade Larabars, gals). Check out the recipe.
