Spring Cleaning + Recipe

I don't know about you but I've had it with dust and grit inside my house. While I am also thinking of my actual bricks and mortar house, I'm actually referring to the inside of my body. The winter has piled up the grime. 

Time to kick the garbage to the curb.

There are a lot of articles, promotions, and honest health-conscious people that suggest you need to detox. I can see why they say so but you do need to realize that naturally, our bodies detoxify. However, you can stall or assist the process. This is where I believe it is imperative to reset in order to move within the rhythm of the season. The newness of life is upon us. The grass is greening up, plant shoots are appearing, and buds are getting ready to bloom. What about you? A good thorough house-cleaning to partner with the change of the season is always a good thing. At least that's what I think. In keeping with this shift, for 4 years now, I have made it a point to focus on a lot of plant-based foods in my diet to assist with detoxification.

Clean and light true foods eating = scrubbing away the sludge

I invite you to join me this year for the Sprout Clean! 2017 15-day program. I've kept the cost the same as previous years as a gift to you... keeping it real and affordable. Your job? Stock up your pantry and fridge with foods that can take you through this spring season and into summer. You keep the information ready at hand for the rest of your life! My job? Direct and guide you, within a group format, to keep us all on track. The recipes are really very good. At least that's what everyone who has taken the program says. They're easy to make and contain heaps of nutrition. Practical to take to work or enjoy at home.

One of my favorite recipes is called "Radish Love Salad." I'm sharing it down below to give you an idea of just one of the recipes. I've used the dressing of course on the salad but also over the top of fish and other vegetables. You could even eat it by the spoonful... I think it's that tasty. :)
