If you're feeling heavy and sluggish after the holiday season you may be searching for some nutritional answers to your bloated stomach and fuzzy brain. Enter in the detox foods. "Detox" does not mean deprivation. It does not mean drinking juice and only juice until you get so hungry you reach for the nearest edible thing. It also does not mean going cold turkey on sugar, caffeine, or whatever else you're trying to rid your body of. Detox should be a more gentle push to put your body on the right path for a naturally healthy diet. Below you'll find 5 foods that you can naturally work into your diet to help detox those unwanted toxins and foods.

What You'll Need

  • Cabbage
  • Ginger
  • Beets
  • Fermented Foods
  • Corriander

What You'll Do

  • Cabbage is loaded with water which will aid your body in flushing out toxins. This veggie also contains vitamin C and Folate which will boost your immune health.
  • You're likely to find ginger in most "Detox Shots" or smoothies. It does add a nice zip of flavor, but it also helps with digestion and in cancer prevention. Ginger can also help manage cholesterol levels.
  • This sweet pretty pink vegetable often turns people off with its distinctive taste, but it's loaded with nutrients so it might be worth acquiring yourself to the taste. Beets are brimming with antioxidants which clean our bodies of free radicals. Free radicals are responsible for the natural aging process of our bodies so lower amounts of free radicals will help keep our insides and outsides youthful.
  • You can't have a proper detox without a working digestive system. If you have trouble in this department (this is anything from bloating, to constipation, to diarrhea) try introducing some fermented foods into your diet. These include things like yogurt, sauerkraut, and pickles.
  • Another hit and miss flavour is that of corriander. If you're unlucky enough to have the gene that makes it taste like soap this food may not be for you, but to all my other coriander loving people here is another excuse to put it on everything. This vegetable (yes it's a vegetable) offers vitamins A, C, and K along with calcium and potassium. Coriander's properties help your body fight off infection - perfect for the cold and flu season!
