Eating with the seasons takes on a new meaning when we think about preventing dis-ease in our bodies.
According to Dr. Keefa Lorraine Witherspoon during the summer we should be eating in a way that balances 2 systems; lungs/colon and kidney/bladder.
By choosing more often from the following list of foods during the hot months we are preparing the lungs and colon for it's heavy load of work during autumn: GRAINS - Rice, Barley, Oats ~~ FRUITS - Peaches, Lemon, Tomatoes, Melons ~~ VEGETABLES - Onion, garlic,, Green Pea, Comfrey, Cider Vinegar, Ginger, Radish, Hot Pepper.
