Friday Foodspiration: Chopped Detox Salad


No need to buy fancy teas or juice cleanses to detox your body. You already have systems in place that do this for you every single day. However, these systems sometimes get sluggish or clogged up or just worn out from all the work we send their way. In this case, our digestive system – and especially our liver – need a little tender loving care.

The ingredients in this salad have nutrients and phytochemicals that help to liver do it’s job, as well as loads of fiber to help clean out your digestive system. If you missed it – I wrote a blog post earlier this week on this topic (Does My Body Need a Detox?)

Want to go sugar free or watching carbs? You can substitute the honey for a few drops of liquid stevia. Need a little extra sweetness? Try adding dried cherries or cranberries.

I highly recommend – even if it’s not usually in your budget – buying organic if you really want to use this as a detox aid. The extra chemicals in conventionally grown produce is counterproductive here.
