Spring is the long awaited time of transitioning from cold winter to warm spring. The days are getting longer and warmer! We are gardening, flowers are blooming, local produce is booming. Spring brings a sense of renewal and new life all around. In Traditional Chinese Medicine they say spring is the time of the liver.

This means it’s our opportunity to make dietary choices to support the liver, and what does the liver love? Sour and bitter foods!

Our liver loving salad below will stimulate your liver function and provide you with lots of energy.
