A Taste of Spring Spring is associated with newness and growth, creativity and lightness. And the spring food qualities include light and upward growing foods. Be sure to enjoy plenty of servings of fresh spring greens this season which is sure to uplift your energy! We have evolved over thousands of years to adapt to our environment. Our needs for different types of food, at different times of year, are part of that evolution. So our make-up has been shaped by the seasons. Perhaps you have noticed that you feel more energised in spring and need more sleep during winter? Our digestive systems and metabolisms are tuned to our seasons. Therefore it is important to change ingredients.
