Spring Preparation #4: Nourish the Spring Body

In this season, we should be nourishing the body by adding foods that support the yang qualities of spring: Drink mint tea with honey Cook with pungent herbs: basil, fennel, marjoram, rosemary, caraway, dill & bay leaf Whole grains, legumes and seeds Beets, carrots and sweet starchy vegetables Cook vegetables at a higher temperature for shorter periods of time Emphasize raw and sprouted foods Eat moderate amounts of food and avoid late meals All of these ideas were taken from a fabulous nutrition reference: Paul Pritchford.  Healing with Whole Foods: Asian Traditions and Modern Nutrition.  Third Edition 2002.
