8 Detox Salad Recipes to Kick-Start Healthy Eating
Detoxing can be tricky. Done right, it can help jump-start your body's process of eliminating toxins and energize you. Done wrong, it can rob your body of valuable nutrients, slow your metabolism and rob you of energy.
Generally, detox eating plans aim to promote toxin elimination, improve circulation, and strengthen your body with healthy nutrients. Some of the foods that help with a natural detox are cruciferous veggies like broccoli and Brussels sprouts, fruits like blueberries, cranberries, and grapefruit, and high-fiber foods like apples.
Often, rather than committing to an extreme 'detox diet,' the best way to begin a gradual detox is to incorporate dishes packed with these foods.
One option: Detox salads. These powerhouses are packed with fresh produce of every kind and color. And they're enticing enough to make healthy eating—and detoxing—downright delicious.

When armed militants with a grudge against the federal government seized the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in rural Oregon back in the winter of 2016, I remember avoiding the news coverage. Part of me wanted to know what was happening, but each report I read — as the occupation stretched from days to weeks and the destruction grew — made me so angry it was hard to keep reading.
A searing heat wave has begun to spread across Europe, with Germany, France and Belgium experiencing extreme temperatures that are set to continue in the coming days.
In the 1980s, a Greenlandic subsistence hunter shot and killed a whale with bizarre features unlike any he had ever seen before. He knew something was unique about it, so he left its abnormally large skull on top of his toolshed where it rested until a visiting professor happened upon it a few years later.
