Now is the time of year when cleansing spring greens are in abundance. Many are sour herbs that work to clear the liver or bitter herbs that enhance digestion. Some contain diuretic and laxative compounds to help you eliminate toxins. Others are diaphoretic, meaning they help you to sweat out toxins. Cooking with these greens and herbs is an easy way to add cleansing action to your everyday meals.
