So, have you recovered from your Thanksgiving feast yet?
I’m definitely still feeling that whole ohmygoodnessIcan’tbelieveIateallofthat thing. I had this insanely delicious broccoli quinoa slaw with a honey mustard dressing, this super simple fennel puree, these outrageously decadent scalloped potatoes, and these super festive holiday Moscow Mules. Needless to say, Thanksgiving was an über-success.
And while our feast was utterly divine, and I have been more than happy indulging in the copious amounts of leftovers stuffed into our fridge, I realized that I’ve started to feel run down, lethargic, and down-right lazy. All of this overindulging has seriously taken a toll on my physical and mental state. whomp whomp.
I know I feel my absolute best when I’m filling my body with colorful fruits and vegetables, so that’s why I decided to round up some of my favorite plant-based detox recipes for ya on this beautiful Saturday morning! These recipes are full of fruits, vegetables, grains, proteins, and herbs that will leave you (and, let’s be serious because I’m totally being greedy here, me) feeling recharged and energized!
I know I will be diving face-first into these recipes this morning for some feel-good nourishment before the second wave of holiday indulgence hits! Cheers to a healthier start to the holiday season!

I love all these!! Definitely adding some to my meals this week. I can relate to feeling sluggish and tired the few days after Thanksgiving. I kept complaining to my boyfriend how tired I was. You don’t know how good you feel until you feel a little crappy! Thanks for sharing my curry :)
