The Best Foods to Eat for Liver & Gallbladder Health
Eating well for liver health is easy in the springtime. You can take your cues from what you see growing everywhere which (hopefully) is very green!
Focus on incorporating more leafy greens and vegetables in your diet and sour foods (the flavour associated with spring)
Experiment with, and enjoy:
- Leafy greens like dandelion, watercress, chickweed, baby greens, chard, lettuces, arugula, sprouts, arugula
- Beets, broccoli, radish, artichoke, cucumber, carrots, celery, coconut milk, daikon
-. Basil, dill, mint, parsley, cardamon
- Grapefruit, lemon, green tea,
- Legumes, sea vegetables, complex carbohydrates (brown rice, millet, amaranth, etc.), fermented foods (such as kimchi, sauerkraut)
Lemon or apple cider vinegar are also beneficial, especially taken in warm water first thing in the morning. Both are also great for dressing vegetables with -whether lightly steamed or as a salad.
Along with adding the above to your diet, try eliminating or cutting back on things that inflame and burden the liver such as sugar, alcohol, trans fats, and see oils like canola, corn and soy. Instead, if you can, find a cold-pressed and unrefined olive oil (for salads), cold-pressed, virgin coconut oil, and/or avocado oil.
This is a great time to support your liver with acupuncture treatments (see my last blog post for why).
