Spring is an unpredictable season. It is beautiful, but can also be wet and gloomy this time of year. It's funny in Seattle this April was so hot and dry and now May is the "April Showers" month. No matter how much it rains, we must appreciate that water is life, and that it ignites the beauty of our fertile land in the Northwest.
We must celebrate the rain, and discover how to stay warm even during the chilly spring.
A warm and vibrant soup for spring can help us through this rebirth time. As I've said many times, I believe spring is our "detox" season, and you don't need supplements or starvation juice programs to cleanse your inner world.
All you need is Whole Foods combined with powerful spices and herbs. The more produce you consume our bodies naturally detox ourselves with it's fiber, nutrients and minerals.
"If you truly get in touch with a piece of carrot, you get in touch with the soil, the rain, the sunshine. You get in touch with Mother Earth and eating in such a way, you feel in touch with true life, your roots, and that is meditation. If we chew every morsel of our food in that way we become grateful and when you are grateful, you are happy."
