Spring Into Spring!

Just like those feisty sprouts and rhizomes bursting with life out from under the snow, the sun and warm air encourages you to come out of your cozy hibernation and spring into Spring! It’s time to begin the transition from warm slow-cooked soups and stews, and hearty root vegetables that helped us through the cold months, to the lighter and power packed greens and bitter herbs of early spring, such as Dandelion greens, arugula and, even, liver-cleansing beets.

This annual transition happens all around us.   And, our bodies are sending us messages to seek out the boost from new found chlorophyll from micro-greens to jump start a bit of spring cleaning inside of our intestinal tract, while also challenging us to eat smaller portions to keep us agile and active.

It’s a great time to get outside and bathe in the new life buzzing around us. The birds are singing, the forest calls us for long peaceful walks. We can feel more light and free by losing a few layers of clothing, grabbing those sandals and feeling the sun on our skin. Early spring is a time to lighten up and get moving. Add in that 12-minute sprint or seek out your walk as a moving meditation (no electronic devices) and “forest bathe”.

Dr. John Douillard, DC, CAP,  a Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner, tells us that we can help our bodies move through the seasons by being mindful of our food choices. We can choose foods that help our body, mind and spirit let go of winter and welcome spring, such as berries, beets, micro-greens, parsley and teas made with dandelion root and leaf.

We think through for you those seasonal changes in what we feature in our menu.

For example, our Quinoa Tabbouleh (Vegan and Gluten-Free)  is made with nutrient-dense parsley and cooling mint, and the lightness of pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.

Passiflora's  “Cleanse” tea which contains Echinacea root and leaf, Dandelion Root, Nettle leaf, Chicory Root, Burdock root, Licorice root, Cinnamon and Orange Peel, and tastes yummy!

Our Walnut-Goat Cheese and Beet Salad, which is light while it still soothes the body with essential fatty acids for the brain.  Tumeric Ginger Tea,  containing turmeric, a wonderful anti-inflammatory herb to protect and cleanse the hard-working liver, is a wonderful choice for Spring.
The goddesses at Passiflora are here to help you spring into Spring by offering delicious and nutrient rich foods and calming, soulful teas with the changing seasons in mind. Or, consult with us on other lifestyle changes or herbal or nutritional supplements that can help you to spring through Spring. Be Well.
