Detox Your Body With This Amazing Broccoli Quinoa Tabbouleh!

Not only is this Tabbouleh full of flavor and delicious, but it is filled with ingredients that help to detox your body!

If you’ve heard that “detoxing is a myth”, then you have to read this post where I share the science behind detoxing. The truth is that our bodies are working overtime every day to process all of the substances that come in and to expel toxins – but they are being pushed to the brink. When our organs are overtaxed and overburdened with toxins, symptoms can creep up such as fatigue, digestion problems, bloating, weight gain and muscle aches. When these symptoms go unchecked and our bodies are not able to detox optimally, we are at risk for greater health problems down the road.

Dr. Mark Hyman, M.D. (a member of my advisory counsel and a trusted mentor) says that detoxification starts in the diet. Dr. Hyman is a huge advocate of supporting the natural detoxification processes in the body with specific foods, such as lemons, garlic, and cruciferous vegetables.

Here’s how these specific ingredients in this recipe helps your body detox:

  • Scallions and broccoli are both high in sulfur, which is a compound that helps your body detox and can prevent kidney damage from exposure to heavy metals.
