The organic label can mislead people to choosing organic junk foods over real, whole, living foods.
I love steaming beetroot and eating it cold with a goats cheese salad, or adding it to stews, but generally, what do I do when I have “too many” vegetables? Make soup of course!
There is a whole world of detoxifying goodness in this salsa, from the phytochemicals; anthocyanins in the berries, limonene in the limes and quercetin in the red onion, to the coriander leaf which is an effective chelator
If you’re like me, this smoothie bowl has the best of both worlds; it’s technically a smoothie but it’s made thick so you have to eat it with a spoon. Add toppings of different textures and voila! Sweet, crunchy, munchy breakfast cereal craving…. satisfied!
Fibre is important for your body at any time, but particularly when doing a detox; not having enough fibre during a time of detoxification can actually be counterproductive and may sabotage your efforts.
Vegetables and high-fibre foods are actually more difficult to break down in your mouth and stomach than a slice of bread.
Your gut does acclimate to having more fibre over time, but you obviously want to minimise any discomfort, and thankfully, there are ways to do this.
