A Three Day Meal Plan for Spring!

The warm weather encourages us to be active and clean, particularly in our eating! If you need a push to get started, try this easy 3 day meal plan.

Spring is finally here! Bodies begin craving more movement and raw, fresh foods as we get more light and warmer weather. Whenever possible, head outside and stand barefoot on the grass, soaking up the grounding earth energy as you stretch up toward the sun. Head out for a bike ride or walk. Take your strength practice into your backyard.

When you start get the munchies, grab some of those healthy carrots or nuts. Make your meals with the best, organic ingredients. Need a little help to get started? Spring veggies combined with organic protein and whole grains are a gentle introduction to the upward moving energy that comes with spring! Here’s a sample three-day meal plan to help you move gently into the season.
