Foodie Friday Recipe: Green Detox Salad

Cleanse and detoxify your system with healthy foods like this super-greens detox salad with apple cider vinegar – it’s delicious and will give your body a healthy boost!

Helping your body cleanse and detoxify is important to do once in a while for improved health. But there’s no need to starve yourself or choke down handfuls of strange supplements or herbal concoctions – instead, the goal is to replace unhealthy and toxic foods with healthy whole foods that support your body’s natural detoxification systems. This can help remove impurities from the blood, and clean the liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs, and lymph system.

How do you know if you need to detox? One common sign is cravings – especially for unhealthy foods like sugar and other carbs. You may also feel tired, sluggish, irritable, or have trouble focusing. Once you have cleansed and detoxified your bodily systems, you should experience increased energy and focus, improved digestion, and better overall health.

The recipe below is a great example of how delicious it can be to eat healthy and detoxifying foods, but you don’t have to be doing a detox to enjoy this salad! It’s also just a fresh, healthy, and satisfying meal that’s perfect whenever you’re looking for something light and healthy for lunch or supper.

Here a few of the detoxifying benefits of this healthy salad, courtesy of nutritionist & natural detoxification expert Yuri Elkaim:

Apple cider vinegar has amazing cleansing and detox properties due to its rich content of minerals, vitamins, and enzymes… ACV works especially well for detoxing the liver and lymphatic system while also balancing the body’s pH.


The broccoli in this detox salad works with the enzymes in your liver to convert toxins into something your body can eliminate easily…

…Leafy greens are packed with antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties as well, not to mention loads of vitamins and minerals. They’re also filled with fiber along with crucial vitamins, minerals, and plant-based phytochemicals to help cleanse your whole digestive system.

Brussels sprouts are high in sulfur, which helps to remove toxins from the blood. They also have enzymes that act on the liver to release enzymes that block damage.

Finally, the watercress in this detox salad works as a natural diuretic to flush out toxins…
