We have a great group of detoxers committed to starting their spring cleanse this weekend. Here’s a photo of some of us from the live detox class. Congratulations to you all for taking this step to do some internal spring cleaning! In this spring cleanse we are particularly focusing on cleansing the two organs, the liver and the gallbladder, that according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, are the rulers over spring.
All the foods we are incorporating into this detox are spring foods, that are in season right now and that promote healthy liver/gallbladder cleansing. For instance, one in particular is dandelion greens. It is a potent liver detoxifier. Did you know that they are very high in vitamins and minerals and contain 15% protein? Who would of thunk it! A green that has protein in it. Here’s a recipe for breakfast using dandelion greens in your omelette that I made up this morning. Dee-licious!
A little ghee
Red peppers (chopped)
Dandelion greens (cut up in pieces)
Sea salt, fresh ground black pepper
Directions: Saute the vegetables in olive oil in a frying pan. (I add a smidgeon of ghee for flavor). Beat eggs separately w/a little water and then pour over sautéed cooked veggies. Cook on high heat pulling edges of cooked egg away from sides of pan w/spatula so to make sure most of egg gets cooked. Season w/salt and pepper. The center of egg will still be a little runny. Turn oven on broil and stick whole frying pan under broiler for no more than 1 or 2 minutes. Keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn. Egg will cook thru, puff up and brown up a bit. You’re done! Serve w/side of fruit or salad.
While we are cleaning out our bodies in this detox don’t forget to clean your heart. Throw away negative thoughts and habits you’ve been harboring that no longer serve you. A clean heart will allow you to receive all the good that awaits you each and every day. This would be a good week to start meditation. If you already meditate-good for you. If not, here’s a simple meditation practice that can get you started. Daily OM Meditations
