Vacation Detox

September 21, 2011

You're back from vacation -- a sojourn filled with excess and devoid of exercise. Or, maybe you've spent the weekend at a wedding and, it being September and all, you have another one in just a few days!

Here are a 7 ideas for a festive meal to pad your post-vacation comedown and keep you (almost) honest in between cake-filled weekends.

Love this. I wish every detox diet had wine, creme fraiche, pecans and blue cheese.

I've made Amanda's radish and pecan grain salad before and it is truly out of this world. It would be a good detox dish for me if only I could keep myself from eating the entire recipe in one sitting. I love that a white wine granita made it to the detox list. My kind of detox!

Weekly inter-wedding detox -- good idea!

Having never REALLY VIEWED brussel sprouts from this distance, I think I'll give them another shot.

I just made the carrot soup this week and it was just wonderful!!!
