Why these recipes are good for Detoxing:

Leafy greens: This super food category shows up often on lists of health-promoting foods, and for good reason. Leafy greens like kale, spinach, wheatgrass, and chard are loaded with chlorophyll, a powerful cleansing nutrient. Chlorophyll is a natural blood-builder and cleansing agent, and is known to help scrub clean cell structures throughout the body and promote new cell life. Chlorophyll also halts the growth and development of toxic bacteria inside the body, and is generally known to counteract toxins.

Citrus fruits: Starting your day off right with fresh-squeezed lemons, limes, oranges, or grapefruit is another effective way to regularly detoxify your body. Besides preparing the digestive tract for food and encouraging the production of digestive enzymes, citrus fruits are also particularly rich in vitamin C, which is recognized as one of the most powerful detoxifying vitamins in the natural world.

Raw vegetables: Broccoli, onions, cabbage, kale, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, artichokes, carrots, cauliflower, beets, turmeric, and oregano, these and many other vegetables and herbs work synergistically with one another to cleanse the body and prevent a buildup of toxins. Like garlic, each of these foods is rich in naturally-occurring sulfur compounds, which the liver needs to effectively eliminate toxins and promote cell growth, as well as detoxifying glutathione.

Chia seeds: Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, both chia and hemp seeds are excellent intestinal cleansers. Omega-3 rich seeds and oils in general help lubricate the intestinal walls and draw out toxins in order to eliminate them from the body. Chia seeds are particularly effective in this regard, as they swell and form a gel-like coating when soaked, which elicits a powerful detoxification effect in the gut.
