The road to improved health does not have to be complicated or burdensome...  it can start as simply as  incorporating healthy foods into our menu's that are refreshing and tasty to eat.

Research indicates that cleansing the body promotes not only better health and increased energy, but can also help shed some unwanted pounds.
Obesity & unhealthy lifestyles are large contributors to healthcare costs and lower quality of life in the US.

According to *research, the following ten healthy foods have natural cleansing properties.

Lemon Water: Lemons are a great source of vitamin C, which can help the body detoxify and burn fat; they also aid digestion.

Dark Leafy Greens: Their chlorophyll content helps rid the body of toxins.

Whole Grains: Besides being full of nutrients and antioxidants, they're incredibly high in insoluble fiber, which helps keep the digestion system regular.

Fresh Fruit: Full of vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber, fruit is a great way to fill up without adding fat or other unwanted commodities.

Beets: The fiber in beets helps increase the production of antioxidant enzymes in the liver, which help the liver and gallbladder eliminate bile and other toxins.

Watercress: A natural diuretic and free-radical fighter that helps stimulate cleansing enzymes in the liver.

Cabbage: Another liver cleanser that also refreshes the palate.

Artichokes: This veggie can promote healthy liver and gallbladder function, and stimulate healthy digestion.

Ginger and Garlic: These flavor-boosters help the liver get rid of free radicals.

Green Tea: Top your meal off with green tea and speed up liver activity while giving a boost to detoxifying 
enzymes. This drink has also been said to help loose pounds.
