Eat lighter, become conscious of what you feed your body
By Rippan Sandhu
It's best to eat clean, whole foods that are as close to nature as possible, and try to eat light and easy to digest foods during spring, waiting at least 3 hours between meals.
Kapha producing foods like dairy products, iced cold drinks or fried and oily food should be avoided if you want to feel and look your best during the spring months.
