Raw Detox Foods from Fall Retreat

It was very easy to choose detoxing foods for this retreat.  We always look at the Nature, at what it brings to us at the particular season. Now it is season of root veggies and cabbage. The best detoxifying root vegetable is beet root, because beets are extremely high in plant ‘flavonoids’ and beta-carotene. In fact,  eating beets (and carrots) can help stimulate and improve overall liver function.
