After the festive period and over indulging, it’s hard to get back into the swing of things! I’ve found some amazing detox dinner recipes that are not only good for you, but are also delicious! From stir fries to salads, from seafoods to stew – eating healthy never tasted so good!
For all of our best intentions, December does end up being a food free-for-all. More wine? Yes, please! Cookie exchange? I’m so there! Egg nog? Why not? I celebrated my birthday with one last tex-mex dinner and margarita on the 5th of this month and have since been enjoying simpler meals, mostly at home and turning a blind eye to my favorite sweet treats. Anyone else? Here’s the thing, though. I’m not a cleanse girl. Nor am I the girl who’s going to only drink juice for a week. I need real food, please and thank you. I’ve been scouring blogs and cookbooks for detox dinner recipes for the month that are both temptingly delicious sounding, but also healthy, clean, and relatively simple and figured I would share them here. What are you loving on your dinner table this month? Happy weekend, friends!
