Recharge Your Body for Spring

Before we hop into spring, your body may be in need of a recharge.

What can we do for our diet?

“You need to clean out your winter sludge,” said nutritionist and chef Nicolette Pace. “This is the very best time to get a jump on spring.”

Pace says there are three key seasonal foods that will get your ramped up for spring. Dandelions are supposed to help detoxify your kidneys.

“Because they are a natural diuretic, they will eliminate bloating and puffiness,” Pace said.

Spring onions are full of sulfur which help lower blood pressure and improve joint health. Then there are beets, which contain betalains.

“It’s anti-aging. It acts directly on the liver for detoxification, helps you to cleanse out your entire body,” Pace said.

Those are some simple ways to put a spring back into your step before the season even begins.
