Fruit is my favourite food and I eat a lot of it! Of all the foods that we can eat for greater beauty, health and vitality, fruit is the most life-enhancing. It is high in water and tummy-friendly fibre, and boasts an amazing spectrum of vitamins, minerals, healing antioxidants, amino acids and fatty acids.
Fruit is broken down quickly in our bodies, supplying us with instant energy. It also helps to dissolve toxic residues and build-up in the body and cleanses our cells, tissues and systems. A properly alkalinised body with plenty of healthy gut microflora can digest fruit really well. But If you find that it causes bloating, burping or discomfort, then it may be better to focus on eating the lower sugar fruits. The best ones are berries, green apples, kiwis, lemons and limes.
Healthy liver, happy body
Everything that you ingest passes through the liver in some form, via the bloodstream, and there are a number of essential nutrients required for the normal phases of liver detoxification. Including these in your diet on a daily basis will help to support a sluggish or overloaded liver. Specific enzymes in foods help to transform and then excrete synthetic chemicals in urine, sweat or bile.
When the liver becomes overloaded, it develops problems and even a mildly sluggish liver can seriously affect our energy levels. So it is up to us to feed the nutrients to our liver that it needs to support its important functions everyday.
Foods that contain the natural sulphurs to support liver detoxification include cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and kale, garlic onions and mushrooms, and leafy greens.
