Spring is a new beginning, the time of the year to rise early with the sun.
This is the Season, to attend to the liver and gall bladder. In spring we naturally eat less, or even fast, to cleanse the body of the heavy food of winter. The diet should be the lightes of the year :
Young plants, Fresh green, sprouts and immature wheat or other cereals. Too many heavy food clog the liver, resulting spring fits and fever.
Food preperation becomes simpler in the spring. Raw and sprouted food can be emphazised.
In spring, food is best cooked for a shorter time but a higher temprature. In this way the food isnt as throughly cooked, ecspecally the inner part.
When cooking with water, light steaming or minimal simmering is ideal.
