Leafy greens are high in chlorophyll, crucial for protecting the liver and ridding the body of toxins. They’re also rich in nutritious antioxidants called carotenoids. An ample dose of garlic boosts circulation and increases liver enzymes that remove toxins.

  1. Place broth and garlic in a large sauté pan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until broth is reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Add kale and escarole (or endive); stir to mix and cook, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Add chard and cook until just tender, 1–2 minutes. Toss in lemon zest and serve immediately.
