15 Recipes To Detox Your Body

Because I know I can’t compete with your grandma’s green bean casserole, Aunt Mary’s velvety mashed potatoes, or cousin Jean’s super-rich stuffing.
And because I’m savvy enough to realize that you don’t need me to tell you how to choose, cook or cut a turkey — for that and a for any other Thanksgiving situation Martha is there for you.
This year I decided to skip Thanksgiving altogether and move directly to Black Friday.
You know, the busiest shopping day of the year — where we trample people for things we don’t actually need, the day after being thankful for what we have.
Also known as the day you wake up feeling like a bloated, elastic-waistband-wearing version of yourself.

But instead of throwing yourself a pity party with leftover stuffing before you hit the stores: why not start fresh with something healthy?
I went in and selected 15 recipes from The Iron You that will help you detox after turkey-day. Most are smoothies/juices, some are salads/soups but there’s also a dessert that I snuck in too, if you want something sweet.

In the meantime I wish you guys a happy Thanksgiving. And remember, Thanksgiving is not a day to diet — for once, you get to gather ’round the table with family and friends, and eat delicious holiday dishes to your heart’s content.
Because no one wants green juice at their Thanksgiving table. No one.


  1. Hahaha yeah I've never done Black Friday and I don't plan on ever participating. I AM however trying to include more veggies on my plate/glass/bowl so this works great. Thanks!

  2. I could use a little bit of detox between Thanksgiving and Christmas! Thanks for the great ideas and yummy recipe!


  3. Thanks for this great compilation, Mike! I'm going to a Thanksgiving BUFFET with my boyfriend and his family, so I might feel like I'm on the verge of death the next day... and yes, we are doing Black Friday, my first time ever. :O

    I will definitely be utilizing these recipes when I get home! I'll need them for sure! Have a great Thanksgiving.

  4. I really need to detox badly, This is all so good . <3
