Cooking with these ingredients will help you detox

Summer means sunshine, vacations, BBQs and possibly overindulging with too many summer treats. Before the holiday season arrives, nourish your body with these seasonal detox foods.

Fall seasonal detox foods

Fruits and vegetables that are nutrient dense — containing a variety of vitamins and minerals — will help support your liver's natural cleansing and detoxification process. These types of foods also naturally contain fiber. A fibrous diet is key for regular elimination, which is one of the body's main methods for detoxification.

  • Apple: Fiber and antioxidant vitamin C
  • Pear: Fiber, copper, vitamin C and vitamin K
  • Broccoli: Fiber, calcium, chromium, zinc, vitamin E and manganese
  • Cauliflower: Fiber, vitamin B6, magnesium and potassium
  • Butternut squash: Fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C and folate

In one day, you can enjoy all five foods!
