Time to spring clean your diet! No, we aren't necessarily talking about a detox per se, but a reboot, maybe?

Many cultures around the world engage in some form of annual spring cleaning. It makes sense.

Prep these meals to spring clean your diet, while you are working hard to spring clean your house!
