What you should be eating after a detox

Now that you’ve relieved and cleaned your body after your detox, you need to nourish it by eating the right foods. After all, “you are what you eat.” But most importantly, you need to be careful of what you eat after a detox. This is because, your body changes the way it absorbs nutrients.

But don’t fret. This is the perfect time to change from winter warming foods anyway to those that help your internal organs do their jobs more effectively and heal the body naturally. Over the next few days, I’ll be giving you some tips on how and what to eat after your detox.
