Each Sunday I will be posting a new Hey Gorgeous tip that is simple and fun. I am a believer that what we put out we attract and I am looking for some simple and some fun. I want my tribe to feel sexy and gorgeous and inspired. I want you to pay-it-forward when you feel inspired by a tid-bit and create the ripple that the joy of loving yourself up, healthy style brings. Yes, that means we might have to share this with the guys (*wink* at the guys who are here already)!

Today's gorgeous tid-bit is all about foraging in the wild for our greens. Let's become a little creature running around looking for some tasty leafy snacks. Does your little creature see a kale garden and set up tent for life? No, this creature takes a few nibbles and moves on to a spinach garden and then explores fields of dandelion greens. This inner creature that we are channeling has a little deep down knowledge of how these plants make their living.
Each of these plants contain tiny, homeopathic amounts of alkaloids. By rotating our greens our body avoids build up of harmful amounts, in fact, we strengthen our systems by eating an assortment of plants. These alkaloids are little protectors for the plants, allowing them to never be eaten to extinction as this would be toxic to our little creature body, oh so clever.
The best way for you to think of rotating is with seasonal eating. Still in winter we are focusing on dark and hardy greens and waiting anxiously for those first dandelion leaves which cleanse us from winter mucus build up. Rotate the locally available winter greens weekly or bi-weekly. Nature makes sense, if you listen to it. Just because fresh basil is available year round in the grocery store, doesn't mean we should be buying it every week.
So channel your inner-fuzzy-knowledgeable-beings and get chomping. Or blending. Or sauteing.
