10 Foods You Should Be Eating in the Spring

April 22, 2019

Spring comes sooner in the warmer states but, wherever you are, spring vegetables and fruits have some of the most powerful detoxifying properties to naturally cleanse the liver and clear out the body’s extra fat and toxins after winter.

 

Here are a few of the foods that you should be including in your diet as it turns to spring:

 

1) Watercress

Watercress can have a strong flavor, so it’s best to mix it with other greens.  But it has an especially strong detoxifying effect on the body, and is excellent for long term health and cancer prevention.

 

2) Beets

Eat them raw if you can by shredding them on salads or as a garnish.  They are also delicious steamed or roasted. Beets contain betaine (also used for treating depression) and polyphenois to help cleanse and restore the liver (our primary detoxifying organ).

 

 

 

3) Celery

Celery is packed with electrolytes.  It helps to neutralize the acidifying foods in our diet and helps with salt cravings (as well as protection from colon cancer). If you juice in the summer, this is an excellent ingredient to throw in!

 

4) Berries

Berries have more antioxidants than any other fruit!  Antioxidants prevent free radicals from damaging cells and are important in cancer prevention and overall good health.

 

 

 

 

 

5) Sprouts

Sprouts have up to 100x more enzymes than other raw veggies and fruits (which are essential for all bodily functions).  They’re especially powerful for someone fighting disease, but can benefit everyone. Because you’re getting the whole plant in a concentrated form, they have increased protein, vitamin and fiber content as well as essential fatty acids.

 

You should also incorporate:

 

Kale

Asparagus

Lemon

Cabbage

Broccoli

 

 

 

Plus spices like turmeric and ginger for anti-inflammatory properties.

 

For group support to clean up your diet after winter's heavier eating, our group April reset starts next week.
