During a detox cleanse, a comforting and nourishing meal will give your body the fuel to cope with the new diet plan. Our bodies have their own natural detox function and need support with the right nutrients, so a drastic diet only puts it under stress. A warming stew loaded with quality plant-based protein is just what you need for a quick detox lunch, as it only takes a few minutes to make. Kale will fuel your liver with sulphur compounds essential for triggering both detox phases, while the beans provide a full feeling and loads of protein and fiber to flush out toxins.
