Fruits and vegetables
Fruits and vegetables contain important vitamins, minerals and plant chemicals. They also contain fibre. Due to their high amounts of fiber, fruits and veggies will digest very fast. Additionally, people withdrawing or detoxing from alcohol may often crave sweets. Fruits contain sugar, which can fulfill the craving for something sweet while not weighing too heavily on the person's stomach since appetite tends to decrease during the detox stage.
A whole grain is a grain of any cereal and pseudocereal that has the endosperm, germ, and bran, in contrast to refined grains, which retain only the endosperm. Carbohydrates are crucial for recovery, as they give fiber and energy, which the detoxer may be lacking.
Food containing vitamin B
Prolonged alcohol consumption leads to a lack of vitamin B, so it is important to replenish your body's supply. Foods high in vitamin B include salmon, broccoli, asparagus, and romaine lettuce. Vitamin B-1 is also called thiamin, and Vitamin B-2 is also called riboflavin. These vitamins help convert food into energy. Vitamin B-1 has neurological benefits, and vitamin B-2 helps maintain proper eyesight. Where you get them: Most people get thiamine from breakfast cereals and whole grains.
Proteins low in fat

Proteins with low fat content are suitable because they positively affect mood and energy, leading to less possiblity of a relapse. Such foods include fish and lean beef.
