It's Time for a Detox!

Updated: Mar 21


Spring is here which means it's detox time!


These foods can help your body jumpstart its natural detox mechanism by supporting the liver:


1) Cruciferous and Bitter Vegetables

Brussels sprouts, kale, chard, collard greens, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage,

bok choy, arugula, radishes, turnips, rutabegas, artichokes and bitter greens like mustard or dandelion (sauté with other greens to reduce bitterness).


2) Sour Foods

Water with lemon or raw apple cider vinegar in the morning, lemon on salad, grapefruit and fermented vegetables like sauerkraut.




3) Beets

Don't forget the beet greens and stems which can be sautéed for a delicious side dish or in a stir-fry!


4) Alliums:

Garlic & onions (including shallots, green onions and leeks)


5) Omega-3's

Wild salmon (and other fatty fish like sardines and mackerel), grass-fed beef, walnuts, and hemp, chia & flax seeds.


While adding in these foods, you'll also want to reduce inflammatory foods like refined carbohydrates (bread, pasta, pastries, crackers etc.), refined sugar (not natural sugar from whole fruit), fried foods and poor quality oils like canola, soy and vegetable oils.
