Whether you’re coming back from a holiday or had an overindulgent weekend, rest assured that tomorrow is a new day.
One of the best ways to start a new day is with a healthy breakfast. If you overdid it recently in terms of food, you might be feeling a bit nauseous or bloated. Not to worry, we have 13 fresh-start breakfasts that will have you feeling better in no time.
Especially after a food-centric holiday like Thanksgiving, you can—and should—eat in a way that doesn’t deprive you, but simply shifts your food intake to healthier, whole foods that provide lots of dietary fiber to improve digestion while cutting out foods that are less nutritious like refined sugar and bread products.
Breakfast is especially important when you’re doing a healthy reset, because it sets the tone for the day: Will you feel satisfied enough to keep with your healthy eating plan? Or will you be so discouraged by your boring morning smoothie that you get desperate and order pizza for lunch?
These 13 breakfasts, full of filling, gut-friendly nutrients, will start your morning off on the right foot so you can stay motivated all day long.
We also have a 3-day detox (with recipes) that will help if you’re looking for a post-Thanksgiving reset button :)
