Sweet and Spicy Glazed Salmon with Roasted Veggies
This sheet pan dinner makes eating detoxifying foods even easier.
Unless you're talking about Froot Loops, in general, the more colorful your meal, the more detoxifying nutrients it contains. That's why it's hard to beat this easy and quick to clean up sheet pan dinner full of greens, yellows, oranges, and reds. The lead protein here is salmon (choose wild-caught), which is a great source of the anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA.
