Grab 11 Detoxifying Snacks on the Go

“Detox” is a health buzzword that can have many meanings. The most important thing to remember is that your body has its own detoxification system that you can support through simple everyday food choices. While there’s no single magic ingredient to reset your body, eating a variety of detox foods can support your overall health and ensure that your natural cleansing system is functioning at its best. 

If you’re looking for easy ways to do this, you’re in the right place. We’ve rounded up 11 detoxifying snacks you can grab and go.

11 Detox Foods We Can’t Get Enough Of

1. Green Smoothie

Blend a handful of spinach or kale, a cucumber, a green apple, a squeeze of lemon juice, a small piece of ginger, a spoonful of chlorella green algae, and some water or coconut water.

Spinach, kale, and chlorella are rich in chlorophyll, which helps your body remove toxins. Cucumber and lemon provide hydration and a refreshing flavor, while ginger aids digestion and has anti-inflammatory properties.

2. Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seeds form a gel when mixed with liquid, making them perfect for homemade pudding. Mix chia seeds with your choice of almond milk, coconut milk, or yogurt. Add a touch of honey or maple syrup for sweetness and some berries for added flavor and antioxidants.

Chia seeds are high in fiber, which promotes healthy digestion and helps eliminate toxins from your digestive system. They also provide omega-3 fatty acids, which have anti-inflammatory benefits.

3. Raw Veggie Sticks with Hummus

It doesn’t get much simpler than veggies as a detox food. Cut up carrots, cucumber, celery, and bell peppers into sticks for easy snacking. Pair with homemade or store-bought hummus for added protein and flavor.

The variety of colorful vegetables provides a range of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, while the fiber in the vegetables and protein in the hummus help keep you feeling full and satisfied.

4. Seaweed Snacks

Seaweed snacks are low in calories and rich in minerals such as iodine, which supports thyroid function and metabolism. They also contain chlorophyll, which aids in detoxification.

Look for roasted seaweed snacks seasoned with a touch of salt or other natural flavors for a satisfying and nutrient-rich snack option.

5. Almonds and Walnuts

Almonds and walnuts are convenient and portable detox foods that provide healthy fats, protein, and fiber. They also contain antioxidants such as vitamin E, which help protect cells from damage.

Eating a small handful of nuts can help stabilize blood sugar levels and energize you between meals.

6. Detox Salad

Who says salad is only for lunch? This is a great detox food to prepare at the beginning of the week so you can grab some here and there. 

Prepare your salad with a mix of leafy greens such as spinach, kale, and arugula. Add in sliced avocado, cucumber, radish, and any other vegetables you enjoy. Top the salad with a light dressing made from lemon juice, olive oil, and herbs such as parsley or cilantro. 

The combination of greens and vegetables provides a variety of nutrients and antioxidants, while avocado adds healthy fats and creaminess.

7. Greek Yogurt with Seeds and Berries

Opt for plain Greek yogurt, which is high in protein and probiotics that support gut health. Top with a handful of berries such as strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries, and ground flax seeds for added fiber, protein, and omega-3 fats. 

Berries are rich in antioxidants called anthocyanins, which help protect cells from damage and reduce inflammation.

8. Apple Slices with Almond Butter

Slice an apple and serve with a side of almond butter for dipping. Choose organic apples if possible, as they are less likely to contain pesticide residues.

Apples are high in fiber, which aids digestion and helps remove toxins from the body. Almond butter provides healthy fats and protein to keep you feeling full and satisfied. Mix a dash of cinnamon into your almond butter for more antioxidants and a warmer flavor.

9. Kale Chips

To make a batch at home, remove the stems from kale leaves and tear them into bite-sized pieces. Toss them lightly with olive oil and your choice of seasonings such as sea salt, garlic powder, and nutritional yeast.

Bake in the oven at a low temperature until crispy but not brown (try 225 degrees F for 20-25 minutes). Kale chips are a crunchy and nutritious snack that provides vitamins A, C, and K, as well as minerals such as calcium and magnesium.

10. Quinoa Salad Cups

Cook quinoa according to its package instructions and let cool. Mix with diced vegetables such as bell peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, and fresh herbs. Consider making a vinaigrette using honey, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, mint leaves, sea salt, chlorella, and water to gently mix in.

Spoon the quinoa salad into small cups or containers for easy snacking on the go. Quinoa is rich in protein and a good source of fiber, while the veggies also provide vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

11. Turmeric Roasted Chickpeas

Drain and rinse canned chickpeas, then pat dry with paper towels. Toss with olive oil, turmeric, cumin, garlic powder, and a pinch of salt. Roast them in the oven on a cooking sheet until crispy, stirring occasionally. 

Chickpeas are high in fiber and protein, while turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties that support detoxification processes in the body. Snack on these by themselves or toss them on your detox salad in place of croutons.
