This week, the AEN Community is joining in on the 7 Day Holiday Detox to help reset sugar cravings and feel good again after Thanksgiving indulgences.
The body is always detoxing via the liver, kidney, skin and bowels. However, certain foods have been found to help the liver breakdown toxins more efficiently. These include foods such as turmeric, ginger, garlic, broccoli, Brazil nuts and beef.(1)
In honor of the 7 Day Holiday Detox, I'm sharing 10 healthy (and delish!) detox approved recipes that use science-backed ingredients to help support the liver while detoxing from sugary treats.
Turmeric Lemon Detox Smoothie
This smoothie is packed with detox promoting ingredients such as chia seeds, turmeric and ginger. It's light, satiating and packed with protein to help prevent sugar cravings.
Summer Detox Chia Pudding
It might not be summer anymore, but this chia pudding is perfect for anytime of the year!
Fresh Ginger Lemon Tea
Ginger is not only a useful tool to aid in liver detox, it's also extremely important for gut health. Fresh ginger helps to boost the Migrating Motor Complex which stimulates gut clean up. You can make fresh ginger lemon tea by slicing 1 inch of ginger and 1/4 lemon and boiling it in water for about 5-10 minutes.
Reviving Detox Soup
This super simple soup is packed with flavor and detox promoting ingredients such as bone broth and broccoli. Pair it with 4-6 oz. of your favorite cooked protein to make it a complete meal.
