“Spring is the time to transition into a lower-fat,
lower-calorie diet, as the body is trying to rid itself of
the heavier stored fats and proteins of the winter.
The following is a sample menu taken from The 3-Season Diet.
As always, lunch should be the largest meal of the day.
• Grapefruit with honey
• Rye Toast with Apple Butter
• Fresh Carrot, Beet, and Apple Juice
• Carrot Soup
• Spinach Salad (Made with roasted pine nuts and currants
or raisins, with raspberry vinaigrette
• Veg: Pesto Pasta (with steamed snow peas on the side)
• Nonveg: Baked turkey (with mashed potatoes and snow
• Corn chowder (made with celery, onions, and potatoes)

Invest in yourself. Twice a year Merri and I spend one or
two weeks really investing in our energy, vitality and health.
We do a spring and autumn clean up, eat less and take in
cleansing foods, do special exercises and totally relax.
This is the maxim: do less and accomplish more working at
its highest. Health is just like wealth. You cannot continue
to draw energy out if you don’t take some in. These
cleanups and times of R & R can clear your mind, extend
your life, stimulate your creativity and lengthen your working
life and lifespan. Join us for our summer R & R health
clean up. DETAILS
