- Try not to eat after 6 pm or before 9 am. After all, breakfast means breaking of a fast so try not to have snacks after dinner or grazing between meals.
- Cutting out milk, cheese, ice-cream and buttery spreads, replacing with olive oil or coconut milk in stews and curries, will ease the congestion on the liver.
- As the variety of fresh fruit and vegetable increase, try more salads and raw foods at the table. Thinly slice courgettes, grate carrots and toss through with lemon juice, olive oil and a sprinkle of salt as an alternative to the hot, cooked dishes that got us through the winter. These sour flavour dishes stimulate the liver and the raw element helps with the production of enzymes to digest and metabolize foods with ease.
