Spring Foods


This is the season to attend to the liver and gall bladder. In spring we naturally eat less, or even fast, to cleanse the body of fats and heavy foods of winter. The diet should be the lightest of the year and contain foods which emphasize the yang, ascending, and expansive qualities of spring—young plants, fresh greens, sprouts, grasses. Too many heavy foods clog the liver, resulting in spring fits and fevers.
