Digest & Detox Salad

Stephanie Malouf Nutrition

When you eat bitter foods such as grapefruit, watercress and fennel, our bitter taste receptors trigger the pancreas to secrete digestive enzymes and the gall bladder to release bile. Bile is used to breakdown fats so we can absorb them as well as remove waste products that the liver filters from the blood. Watercress is also high in calcium, contains more iron than spinach and more nutrient dense than kale!

 Note: Be careful not to eat too much grapefruit when taking medications because it inhibits the enzymes that breakdown drugs, increasing their toxicity and effect. In some cases it may also cancel out medications.
