Holidays. Holy Days. Work-free days.
We. All. Love. Them.
But do our bellies? :)
I find that often during holiday celebrations - whether it be a Memorial Day cookout, a birthday party, or the new year - healthy food and celebration don't always go hand-in-hand. For some odd reason.
While I maintain that we all owe it to our bodies to eat as healthfully and cleanly as possible - most of the time - I also choose to not be the person who refuses a piece of birthday cake or a slice of pizza (or three) or a (grossly) over-sweetened celebratory drink just because it's unhealthy. After all, we always have tomorrow to make up for it, right? ;)
So, what do we do when tomorrow strikes?
After a day of (or weekend of) celebrations, I generally turn to three main foods to help my body "recover" from whatever I ate, or overate, the day before:
1. Greens (read: [Dark] Green, Usually Leafy, Vegetables)
