Fruits and vegetables for liver detox

If there's one misconception about a detox, it's that you need to sip on some tepid-tasting juice concoction for a weeklong stretch before feeling "cleansed." In fact, being more mindful of what you add to your diet often is just as important in promoting a healthy cleanse. And during this time of year, when fresh foods are in abundance, it couldn't be easier.
