The liver is the second largest organ in the body – and it’s a body part that we cannot live without. All blood leaving the intestines and stomach makes its way through this powerhouse. More than 500 vital body functions, including cleansing toxins from the blood, assisting digestion and metabolizing drugs, have been associated with this organ. No wonder maintaining a well-functioning liver is a key step to optimal health.

Eating high-fiber, plant-based foods can aid liver function. Think vegetables, especially dark green veggies like spinach and Brussels sprouts. And include fruits, beans, nuts, healthy oils and whole grains. Round out the menu with fish, such as salmon, and sustainable seafood choices. Savor this meal plan’s flavor-combos and textures as you wash it all down with green tea.
