For protein beans are great (like chickpeas, lentils, kidney beans, black beans, etc.), fish like salmon or tuna, eggs, tofu, tempeh, veggie burgers, nuts like almonds and walnuts, seeds - pumpkin seeds for example, nut butters like peanut or almond butter, etc.
Drink plenty of water to help clear your body out, you can also drink water with lemon which is cleansing. Go for organic foods whenever you can.
Healthy food ideas:
~ Greek yogurt or yogurt (nonfat) - Greek yogurt has more protein than regular yogurt
~ Eggs, cheese, cottage cheese (2% is fine), goat cheese, skim milk or goat milk, etc.

~ Multigrain bread, ezekiel bread, rye bread, whole wheat pitas, whole grain tortillas or bagels, etc.
~ Whole grain pasta or brown rice pasta or spelt pasta, brown/wild rice, quinoa, buckwheat, etc.
~ Sweet potatoes & potatoes
