Spring is finally here! Who else is ready for a little refresh? The change in seasons presents the perfect opportunity to reboot our minds, bodies and homes! Today we’re sharing science-backed info on the ingredients we’ll be adding to our meals this spring. Their anti-inflammatory properties are perfect for detoxing your body and energizing your mind.

Check out all the details on de-bloating with these amazing foods below!

Garlic

Garlic makes everything taste so much better. And it has tremendous effects on your body. Garlic has been found to enhance phase 2 detoxification (during which your liver breaks down toxins to make them less harmful), so adding it to your diet is an amazing way to cleanse your system. We love it in the Trim It Up Tray Bake from the 5 Day Detox Meal Plan.

Brazil Nuts

Brazil nuts are packed with detoxifying properties. They are high in selenium, which helps form glutathione (a powerful antioxidant) in your body. One study found that eating just two Brazil nuts a day improves anti-inflammatory responses in the body. Plus, they’re known to improve your mood and boost your heart function! We like blending one or two into our Tone It Up Protein smoothies!
