A Week’s Worth of Virtuous Lunches
With epic dinner parties everywhere you turn, the holidays are no time for diets or restrictions. To balance out the cheese platters and happy hours, we’re keeping our lunches a little cleaner and healthier. Here, four of our all-time favorite detox-friendly lunches that will keep you feeling good, no matter how many arancini you had last night.
This quick and easy dish is a perfect dinner after a long day. The kale guacamole makes a great snack with raw veggies.
We make this with cooked sushi rice from the grocery store and leftover grilled chicken. Full of protein and probiotic-packed kimchi, this is one of our favorite lunches even when we’re not detoxing.
This is a detox-friendly version of one of our favorites, a Vietnamese banh mi sandwich.
This Mung Bean Dal is high in protein, low in calories, and particularly easy to digest and absorb, making it a perfect detox meal. It also cleanses the liver, gall bladder, and vascular system of what Ayurveda calls ama, or undigested toxins.
