Spring is Kapha Season, it is the time to melt the winter cold and stagnation and a great time to eliminate toxins to get a stronger internal digestive fire and improve your circulation. It is is time to heat the system and move, move move!
This season go for greens! Especially parsley, coriander, basil, mustard greens, any wild greens in your area. Also go for dark and leafy greens to support your body’s internal spring cleansing process.
Use spices like turmeric, ginger, clove, cumin, black pepper, cayenne to support this fire and heating process. Pay attention to your dosha when you use spices like cayenne and black pepper, since Vata dosha needs less.
