Good Morning and Happy Monday!
Today I want to talk about the seasonal Spring foods that naturally cleanse your liver and support a harmonious body. Eating with the seasons supports detoxification. Below is a list of wonderful Spring foods that I recommend adding to your diet:
Artichoke: A wonderful choice for the liver and the gallbladder because it increases bile flow.
Asparagus: Helps cleanse the kidneys and reduces water retention. It is also a rich source of folate, important for healthy cells, and high in glutathione, a vital antioxidant for detox.
Dandelion: Stimulates the digestive juices. Helps to digest fats and supports the body’s natural detoxification processes. You can juice dandelion leaves, cook with them, or drink dandelion tea. Spring is the ideal time to reap the benefits of dandelion greens, as they become too bitter in the summer.
Garlic: Antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal, and anti-cancer. Garlic supports detoxification and is one of nature’s best antioxidants.
Nettle: Rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, including natural iron, nettle is fabulous for strengthening the liver, adrenals, and kidneys. Wonderful in tea form, it can be taken up to 3 times a day for extra nourishment during detox.
Peas: Rich in vegan protein and packed with essential nutrients. An ideal food to substitute for heavier protein sources during a detox.
Sea Vegetables: Dulse, nori, kelp, arame, and kombu.
Leafy Greens: Kale, Swiss chard, spinach, bok choy, mustard greens, and watercress.
Fresh Herbs: Parsley, cilantro, and basil.
Super Foods: Chlorella, spirulina, wheatgrass, chlorophyll, barley grass, and wild blue algae.
