Fruit and Veggies
All sorts of fruit, whether frozen and thawed or fresh from the plant, are recommended for those on a detox. As for vegetables, any fresh vegetable will do. However, some vegetables are considered slightly more effective in moving the detoxification effort along. These latter include broccoli and broccoli sprouts, beets, red and green veggies, artichokes, cauliflower, and especially garlic.
Grains, Beans, and Nuts
Rice is highly recommended---particularly brown rice. A detox can be improved by inclusion of other grains in one's diet, like millet, buckwheat, and amaranth. Kidney beans and pinto beans are great for a detox, as are lentils, garbanzo beans, and mung beans. Any nuts or seeds (minus the salt) are recommended, too---except for peanuts, and unfortunately, peanut butter.
Sugar, Gluten, and Dairy
Anything that contains sugar (look on the ingredients for corn syrup, dextrose, sucrose, or brown sugar) is usually not allowable on a detox diet---not even artificial sweeteners. Avoid dairy products as a rule, including milk, cream cheese, sour cream, butter, and yogurt. Grains that contain gluten, including wheat, barley, and rye, should also be avoided.
Fats and Beverages
Fatty foods are obviously out when it comes to a detox. So too is junk food, in any quantity. As a rule, too, avoid coffee, other caffeinated drinks, and, especially, alcohol.
