After a long dark winter, I love the end of the Northwest dreariness when spring arrives in Seattle. Colors start to fill our world again as nature transform herself with brighter days, spring flowers, and a myriad of greens. I especially love the cherry blossom trees that have burst into brilliant shades of pinks. 


Spring brings a rejuvenating energy as we anticipate more activities outside. We need to say goodbye to our 'winter coats' before we can fully embrace spring's energy. Think-- margarita in a cup bigger than our face on our favorite happy hour deck. Spring and the rebirth of nature is the ideal season to detox the body according to ancient healing of Chinese medicine and Ayurveda from India. Doing a cleanse gives me an opportunity to rehabilitate myself from the stupid amount of Jameson, comfort foods, and crazy emotions I endured during holidays and Seahawk games! Plus, we gotta slim up to put on that itty-bitty bikini. 

Choosing the right cleanse can be overwhelming but don't be discouraged by it.  I personally do the Advocare 24-Day Challenge in the spring and in the fall I do a juice cleanse (no fasting, I still eat clean food). The Advocare Challenge is realistic and attainable because it doesn't involve you being on some sort of crazy diet or fast.  No fasting for this girl or she gets reaaaal cranky. With this cleanse, I can actually eat 5 (clean) meals and it's a no-brainer with the provided instructions and supplements. I will admit though it does take a bit of planning for meals but the effort you put in is SO worth it.  I am not an Advocare distributor, so there's no bull-s-ing here. If you have any questions my Advocare coach (Danny) is very helpful and knows his stuff. My first challenge 2 years ago was the best thing I ever did because it gave me a great jump start to my healthier lifestyle since it promotes clean-eating. 
Regardless of how you cleanse, I encourage all of you to clean up your diet over the next couple of weeks as we continue to transition from spring to summer. Choose more dark leafy greens and incorporate lots of lemon in your diet as a natural detoxifier.  I promise your  body will thank you for it.  

Find some springtime energy to inspire you.. go to your local farmer's market and grab one of the hundreds of bountiful bouquets of tulips and daffodils that awaits you at the stands. I found my inspiration by visiting Pike Place Market in Seattle...

Good luck with all of your spring cleansing and drink lots of water!
