Green Up!

Not only is GREEN the 5-Element color for the Spring season and Wood element and the color of plants that sprout in the Spring, it's the color of the food we're smart to consume during the season.

During Spring, we focus on bringing the liver and gall bladder organs and meridians into balance.

Consume these green foods during the Spring season to rejuvenate your liver!

🌱Drink green juices made of leafy greens, cucumber and a bit of green apple.

🌱Really go for it and drink an ounce or so of fresh-pressed wheatgrass juice as often as your body tells you to.

🌱Add chlorophyll-rich foods to your smoothies like barley grass, chlorella, spirulina, blue green algae, ceremonial grade matcha green tea, parsley, kale and spinach.

🌱Drink hot mint tea to soothe the liver's chi energy.

🌱Eat more green "bitters" like rye, romaine, asparagus, endive and dandelion greens which will also help to alleviate springtime allergies.

The energetic season of the Wood element (Spring) ends April 17.
