With the holidays over and entirely too much good food consumed, most of us find ourselves feeling constantly full and even a little sluggish. How does one compensate and get back on track? My recommendation is to go with a high vegetable diet. Incorporate in good proteins and alternative carbs.
Braised winter greens, quinoa or farro and organic poultry is a good place to start. Leave the heavy sauces behind and opt for extra virgin olive oil and balsamic reduction to garnish. Think in terms of anti oxidants, cleansing foods and immune boosters. Garlic, beets, dark green vegetables are always a good way to go throughout the winter. Lighter, fresher, and cleaner foods will have you back in the saddle, feeling 100% in no time.
