Healthy New Year Recipes

January 1 signifies a fresh start and the perfect time for post-holiday detox. But I’m not talking about a juice cleanse or cabbage soup diet. I’m talking about simply starting the year with healthy New Year recipes that are high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds to help neutralize toxins, boost the immune system and repair internal damage caused by overindulging during the holidays.

New Year Detox Tips

Go the extra mile by implementing these additional detox tips during the month of January.

  • Cut The Sugar. Remove added sugar and artificial sweeteners from your diet for a while to reset your “sweet” taste buds. Eliminate sugary drinks, snacks and treats and allow fruit to satisfy your sweet tooth.
  • Take a Break from the Booze. Alcohol adds calories to the diet without nutrients. You likely did enough drinking over the holidays to hold you over for the next month (if not longer), so give you liver a break. Participate in sober January and drink water instead.
  • Up the Veggies – Start by adding veggies to at least one meal every day of the week and increase your intake from there. Think green smoothies, side salads and vegetarian dinners. Make grabbing for the veggies first a new healthy habit this year.
