Foods For Everyday Detox

Crucifers for detox

I’ve been thinking a lot recently about environmentally-driven illnesses—the chronic conditions that either come about or become worse as a result of exposures to toxins in our air, water, food, homes, and workplaces. 

One big part of prevention is minimizing our exposure to environmental chemicals and toxins (I shared this in a previous post). 

But 100% avoidance of toxins is never possible. That’s why the other big part of prevention is supporting our body’s inherent ability to metabolize, detoxify, and eliminate toxins EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. 

🧩One of my favorite ways to do that? 

With foods 🥑🫐🍅🥕🥦

Here are 5 delicious foods to support everyday detoxification. 

🥬 Green Leafy Vegetables

Leafy greens are rich in minerals and antioxidants. Some of the best to support detoxification include kale, watercress, arugula, and cilantro.

🥦 Cruciferous Veggies

Broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts are rich in a compound called sulforaphane that has powerful antioxidant actions.  

🧄Onions and Garlic

Onions, garlic, and leeks are good sources of sulfur, helping to support liver detoxification pathways. 

🍋 Lemons

Lemons are rich in vitamin C and can be easily added to warm or cool water for detox support. 

🫐 Berries

The deep blue and purple colors of berries are a result of powerful antioxidant compounds called anthocyanins.

If you are interested in supporting your body to be as resilient as possible in the face of our increasingly toxic world, watch for my next post. I’ll be sharing some everyday detox habits that will work synergistically with these detox foods!
