It’s easy to get stuck in an unhealthy food cycle. From downing one too many margaritas at happy hour, to noshing on your kids’ leftover mac and cheese instead of sitting down for a healthy meal, food temptations lurk around every corner.
There’s nothing wrong with indulging every now and then, but problems arise when you treat yourself a little too much — like a bloated stomach, swollen limbs, and a sluggish mentality (to name a few). When it gets to that point, you may want to consider eating foods that clean out your system and giving your body and healthy detox.
I know what you’re thinking. You’d rather swear off selfies than embark on a month-long juice cleanse. Well the good news is, you don’t have to. Some of your favorite foods already have detox-inducing qualities that allow you to clean out your system without the daunting commitment of a formal cleanse. No tricks. No gimmicks. Just good old-fashioned healthy eating.
So next time you’re feeling icky and in need of a little detox, try eating one of these proven foods to clear out your system.
