This is a very simple snack, yet very nourishing and loaded with detoxifying ingredients. Avocado is a healthy fat superstar, helping your cells regenerate, reducing cholesterol, and balancing hormone production. It is a good pairing for foods rich in antioxidants, because healthy fats increase the absorption of these phytonutriens. Parsley might not be a very popular herb, but it’s actually a fantastic source of vitamins, minerals, protein and other nutrients providing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection to your cells. Combine them to create a highly detoxifying snack, and add mixed seeds and nuts for extra minerals and essential fatty acids, plus a crunchy texture.Print
