Kick Start Your Spring Detox With This Sweet & Spicy Superfood Salad

Happy Spring everyone! Now is the time when our bodies naturally begin to detox by shedding extra weight that kept us warm during the winter, flushing out toxins with our cravings for lighter and fresher foods and simply feeling more energized with the longer periods of daylight. Resisting this natural process by eating heavy foods and staying inactive will lead to sluggishness, fatigue and even spring allergies. So go with the flow and awaken your body to the lightness and energy it craves as the days become longer, warmer and even more beautiful with flowers and trees blossoming all around. Supporting your body along this natural detox process will encourage it to feel healthy and rested. So much so that your caffeine and sugar addiction will become a thing of the past... if you allow. To kickstart this exciting process, welcome the Spring Equinox with this light and spicy/sweet superfood salad: 

Plump, juicy blueberries, spicy arugula and sweet meyer lemon come together to make the simplest and most delicious springtime salad.
