Spring represents the beginning of another cycle – the first season of the year.
• the preparation of food should be simple, as spring represents youth and the raw foods recommended during this season are thought to bring about a sense of renewal
• cook food for a shorter time but at higher temperatures, as in stir-frying and steaming—in this way the food is not thoroughly cooked, especially the inner part, but you still need to cook most of your food to maintain climatic and digestive balance
• sweat as much as possible. Some toxins are eliminated through sweat. Be sure to wash off the sweat, however—if your body reabsorbs it, you will be re-toxing yourself.
