I love seasonal eating and at the moment I'm enjoying lots of raw veggies and fruit which is naturally hydrating as well as yummy and nutrient dense. Did you know however that each of the Five Elements has a sense associated with it and for Summery Fire this is the sense of taste and then each of the elements have an associated flavour?
For Fire this is bitter; bitter foods take the heat out of firey, spicy foods and also helps support the Small intestine and digestion; bitter foods include romaine lettuce, rye, alfalfa, watercress, dandelion greens and aloe vera juice.
One of my favourite lunches at the moment is to load up big romaine lettuce leaves with humus, chopped tomatoes and avocados and top with alfalfa sprouts, they look like boats!
Anyway have a lovely day and enjoy some sunshine 🌞🌞 lots of love Carol xx
