Thanksgiving is all about gratitude. Giving thanks to health, family, happiness and of course food!!!

This is one of the days of the year where we ‘binge’ eat and wake up the next morning feeling the need to reset.

Luckily, there are some detox ideas that you can do that are easy to make, do not take that much time, and even use those leftovers that are hanging around. 

Breakfast and/or Afternoon Snack:

After a day of feasting and reconnecting with family, you’ll need to boost your system. This Greek yogurt recipe is geared towards giving you energy and waking up your immune system.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup buckwheat groats or granola
  • 1 pear
  • Maple syrup or honey to taste
  • 1 teaspoon chopped mint (optional)

Lunch and/or Dinner:

Its time to use the leftover turkey, and whip up a turkey avocado salad sandwich. This sandwich is a light lunch that is packed with protein, fibre, and belly-blasting healthy fats to keep you going for a few hours. 

Ingredients:

  • Shredded leftover turkey
  • 1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup of diced celery
  • 1/3 cup of diced apples
  • 1/3 cup grapes, cut in half
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • Two slices of bread

Smoothie:

I don’t think I will have to do much convincing on this one, it is filled with vitamins, minerals and super-foods that will keep you energized and glowing and it is called Chocolate Coconut smoothie.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of mixed baby kale
  • 2 full bananas
  • 1 tablespoon of cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoon of coconut flakes
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup ice

While you are detoxing from time with family and turkey, remember to meditate and hit your mat!
