Ayurveda recommends a cleanse to accompany a change in season, to clear channels and rid the body of accumulated toxins. Spring is an especially important time of the year when nature re-awakes and provides us with all the food tools we need to rid the body of excess fats and heavy proteins! As an alternative to ascetic juice cleanses, Noël will ntroduc uests o a traditional Ayurvedic recipe that is satisfying to the palate and detoxifying for the body: kitchari.
