five foods that consistently cleanse

Returning to a Healthy Lifestyle

After facing health issues that landed me on the floor of an airplane, I was forced to take a good, hard look at the path that had led me there. I had ignored my body — plain and simple. The signs had been there, yet I continued to ignore them. I let a hectic schedule come first and put my health and happiness second. I knew it was time for a rapid reset to restore my health and return to a healthy lifestyle. The five-day cleanse turned my health around, and trust me when I say, I’m not going back to the unhealthy me. Not only do I continue to repeat my five-day cleanse every three to four months, I pack my meals with the foods I know will continue to cleanse my body until my next rapid reset. So, what’s so spectacular about these amazing foods?

What foods consistently cleanse? 

Lemons to start your day

Lemons are the perfect choice for helping your body flush out those impurities that are trying to bring you back down. Lemon juice can be your secret weapon after your rapid reset to keeping your cleanse going. It’s known for its ability to stimulate your liver for precisely this reason. Lemons are packed with vitamin C to boost your immune system and help produce glutathione. Glutathiones offer incredible benefits, including:

  •  Improved circulation: It has allowed patients with peripheral artery disease the ability to walk without pain.
  • May reduce oxidative stress to fight autoimmune disease, cancers, diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Decreases the occurrence of cell death in your liver.

Make it a habit to start each day with hot lemon water. It can give your body a boost while rehydrating after a long night of sleep. Drinking hot lemon water on an empty stomach is best, as it will stimulate metabolism; helping with various digestive issues. 

Beets: A liver's best friend

Beets are known for their power to keep your liver healthy and strong. Beets provide support to your liver by ridding your body of toxins. They also work to:

  • Increase bile production
  • Activate enzymes in your liver
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Reduce your risk of damage to your liver

Beets are amazing as a side, but you'll love them in a smoothie! You’d never know these tasty guys could have so much impact on prolonging your rapid reset results.

A buffet of cruciferous veggies 

You’ll have a wide variety of cruciferous veggies to choose from to continue the good your five-day cleanse has done. This group of powerful vegetables includes:

  • Cauliflower
  • Cabbage
  • Bok choy
  • Broccoli
  • Arugula
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Kale
  • Collard greens
  • Watercress
  • Radishes

Load up on this group to fill your body with calcium. Calcium will help protect your body against various toxins. Glucosinolates, which are responsible for breaking down into cancer-fighting molecules (ITCs), help your body detox to fight against cancer risks. And here’s a helpful health tip – eat this group raw when you can. Cooking them reduces the bioavailability of the ITCs.

Garlic and onions to push out the toxins

You can continue the benefits of your five-day cleanse by adding garlic and onions to your diet. They help support your body’s detox and cleansing process by producing glutathione. These two are extremely rich in sulfur, making this antioxidant vital because it latches onto toxins and escorts them out of your body. Pretty powerful, right? It’s particularly useful for flushing out heavy-metals and protecting you against kidney damage.  These potent little detoxifiers can also reduce your risk for colon and liver cancer.

Dandelions for detox

Yep, dandelions. Known also as the “liver tonic,” dandelions, along with other bitter greens, boost the detox efforts of your liver. They act as a diuretic; increasing urine output to flush your system. You can easily toss a handful into your teas, soups, and salads. Did you know they are useful for weight loss, removing kidney and urinary tract toxins? They also fight against bacteria and have a way of getting rid of all that uncomfortable bloating. It may also help soothe additional digestive issues. Adding dandelions to your diet post rapid reset will keep your body cleansed and refreshed long after your five-day cleanse has ended.

Don’t forget to hydrate!

Water helps eliminate the waste from your body and keeps your systems healthy and able to function properly. It’s the simplest way to help cleanse your body and shouldn’t be neglected; during or after your five-day cleanse. Water also boosts the health of your kidney and bowel functions. And you already know that water does wonders for your skin! Less fine lines, wrinkles, and a healthy glow? Yes, please! Don’t forget to add a lemon wedge or two.

There are many cleansing foods to choose from to help continue your detox efforts. Choosing to add these foods, especially those from the top five cleansing list, will prolong those feelings of rejuvenation and restoration. You’ll even find several delicious recipes in my Cleanse and Reset book that call for various foods from this cleansing list. Following your five-day cleanse, your body will love you for maintaining your healthy lifestyle goals with these powerful detox-promoting foods.
