How to Detox in the Fall

The weather in Vancouver is cold and rainy, so I’ve had to alter my detox to contain more warming foods. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, our Spleen helps us digest food. The (TCM) Spleen favours warm foods, so I’ve increased my consumption of soups and warm herbal teas. I also add cinnamon and ginger to my smoothies (which are cold in nature) to add some warmth. With a fall detox, it’s also important to eat what’s in season- choose hearty root vegetables and delicious apples.

I’ve been eating of lot of butternut squash soup, ginger and carrot soup, and also curried pumpkin soup… so good!
