After a fun weekend full of fancy meals (and nights) out, come back to the center with a day of clean eats: just one day of detoxifying recipes (detox menu) can make a huge difference in how you feel for the rest of the week.
Flush Out Those Toxins With Our Detox Menu
You can follow our detox menu once in a week --- set up your date with yourself
Breakfast: Green Tea With Lemon
As soon as you wake up, brew a cup of hot green tea. It's high in catechins, which can speed up your liver's ability to detox — especially helpful if you've been boozing over the weekend. Add a squeeze of lemon to give your cup even more detox power.
Breakfast: Oatmeal With Fruit
Taking well under 10 minutes from prep to bowl, oatmeal is a quality source of whole grains, offering filling and satisfying calories along with plenty of fiber to aid in healthy digestion. Be sure to choose rolled oats over the prepackaged packets, since they can contain high levels of added sugar. Top your breakfast off with seasonal fruit and a handful of your favorite nuts to boost your bowl's nutrients.
Lunch: Apple Cabbage Salad
Apples combine with the dynamic duo of red and Savoy cabbage to create a fiber-filled detox salad that aids in digestion. The addition of fennel seeds adds to the fiber factor, plus a kick of cayenne boosts your metabolism. Feel free to add some grilled chicken breast or garbanzo beans to this salad for extra protein.
Craving something crunchy when 2 p.m. rolls around? Instead of reaching for chips, bake up a batch of beautiful in-season brussels sprout chips that take just 10 minutes to roast in the oven. In addition to being a satisfying snack, brussels sprouts are a great source of digestion-supporting fiber and detoxifying sulfur.
A light yet filling liquid dinner is the perfect way to close your delicious detox menu. Try this satisfying and spicy ginger-carrot soup. It's high in vitamin A, vitamin C, and manganese, which helps to aid in digestion.
