One of the hardest parts of detoxing is knowing what to eat. There are foods to avoid, foods to eat, it can get nuts!!!delicious detox quinoa salad

That’s why I always make sure I have this salad on hand whenever I am detoxing. It uses quinoa, a gluten-free seed from a leafy plant related to spinach.

Not only does it provide great appetite control, but the quinoa is an excellent source of protein. Plus, it also contains high levels of potassium and vitamin B2; as well as vitamins B1, B3, B6; copper; magnesium; and zinc. Use it as a side dish at dinner or as a stand-alone lunch.

1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon tarragon
3 tablespoons olive oil
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
