So, I’m ready for spring. Like ready, now. Today was gorgeously sunny and warm and it made me itchy for flowers and shedding of our winter skins (8 million layers of clothing we wear for the rain and cold). As I look forward to spring, I’m also planning out my Spring Clean meal plan and other programing. I will be heading into spring with a focus on whole raw foods. The plan will include some cooked foods but as the temps warm up, our bodies begin to crave cooler foods.
Here is a little sneak peak of what’s to come:
Cucumber-Pear-Avo Delight (serves 1-2)
- 1.5 ripe avocado
- 1 large cucumber
- 1 pear
- 1 handful cilantro
- 2 large handfuls mixed baby greens
- 3 cloves raw garlic
- juice from 1 lemon
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup water
- salt, pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper to taste
Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender. Top with spices and a few sprigs of cilantro. Serve at room temp.
