Detoxing can be tricky. Done right, it can help jump-start your body’s process of eliminating toxins and energize you. Done wrong, it can rob your body of valuable nutrients, slow your metabolism, and rob you of energy.
Generally, detox eating plans aim to promote toxin elimination, improve circulation, and strengthen your body with healthy nutrients. Some of the foods that help with a natural detox are cruciferous veggies like broccoli and Brussels sprouts, fruits like blueberries, cranberries, and grapefruit, and high-fiber foods like apples.
Often, rather than committing to an extreme ‘detox diet,’ the best way to begin a gradual detox is to incorporate dishes packed with these foods.
One option: Detox salads. These powerhouses are packed with fresh produce of every kind and color. And they’re enticing enough to make healthy eating — and detoxing — downright delicious.
