Citrus fruits such as lemons, oranges and grapefruits are excellent for a detox diet due to their high vitamin C content and natural cleansing properties.

Starting your day with a glass of warm lemon water can stimulate digestion and kickstart your metabolism.

Oranges and grapefruits make for a refreshing snack or can be added to salads for a zesty flavor.

These fruits not only help flush toxins from your body but also provide a boost of energy and hydration.

Incorporating whole grains like quinoa, brown rice and oats into your detox plan is beneficial for sustained energy and improved digestion.

These grains are rich in fiber, which aids in digestion and helps you feel full longer.

For a wholesome breakfast, try a bowl of oatmeal topped with fresh berries and nuts.

Quinoa and brown rice can serve as hearty bases for salads or side dishes, providing essential nutrients without the heaviness of processed grains.

Lean proteins are essential for a detox diet

They provide the necessary amino acids for muscle repair and maintenance without overburdening your digestive system.

Grilled chicken or fish can be paired with a variety of vegetables for a satisfying meal.

For plant-based options, incorporate beans or lentils into soups and stews for a protein-rich, detox-friendly dish.
