Thanksgiving Detox Tips

Day-After Detox: How to Get Back on Track After Thanksgiving

We're happily indulging in all the epicurean celebrations of Thanksgiving, but we also are being realistic about it — on the holiday, most people are prone to eating too much or indulging more than they meant to. But the day after the big meal is a chance to start fresh, so read on for our tips on how to detox after your Thanksgiving feast.

  1. Yoga for digestion: You don't even have to wait for the next day to get a start on detoxing. Do these yoga poses for digestion after you wake up from your food coma or the next morning to keep everything running smoothly. Even better, go for a run the morning after Thanksgiving: cardio is a great way to detox.
  2. Start with a green juice: Many Thanksgiving feasts are full of fat, salt, or sugar, so resetting your taste buds is a good thing to do once Thanksgiving is over. Blend a batch of this detoxifying green juice to naturally flush toxins from your body while also training your taste buds from craving sugar and fat.
  3. Don't redo the feast: Thanksgiving day's decadent tablescape is Friday's overstuffed fridge. Just because you have a kitchen full of leftovers doesn't mean you should redo that heaping plate of food you made yesterday. Stick to small, reasonable meals instead, and go back to your normal healthy-eating schedule as much as possible (i.e., not going for your second piece of pie) to make detoxing a reality.
  4. Stock up on detox foods: Fridge space may be lacking, but make some room for foods like dark leafy greens, beets, and whole grains to help aid in detoxing. Get our list of 10 detoxing foods you should eat here.
  5. Eat soup: Don't relive that overly stuffed feeling from Thanksgiving. Keep yourself satiated without the bloat with a brothy low-sodium soup. These detox soup recipes are packed with antioxidant-rich veggies.
