    Thanksgiving Detox
    Posted by Joy Bauer, M.S., R.D., C.D.N.

    If your Thanksgiving plate resembled a family-style buffet doused in lard
    laden gravy, worry not. This 72-hr detox plan is the perfect recipe to
    combat the Thanksgiving weight-gain disaster. Garnish with 8-10 cups of
    water and a daily multivitamin and dive in. Your stuffing will skedaddle and
    you'll be back in your skinny jeans in no time!

    Day One
    Vegetable Omelet with Toast: One omelet made with one whole egg and two egg
    whites, and stuffed with vegetables (try spinach, onions, tomato, mushrooms
    or zucchini saut?ed in 1 teaspoon olive oil). Cook omelet in a nonstick pan
    or coat a regular pan with cooking spray. Serve with one slice of high-fiber
    bread (any brand that has 2 grams fiber and no more than 90 calories per
    slice). Optional coffee or tea (plain or with skim milk, no sugar)
    Soup and Salad: One bowl of minestrone, black bean, or lentil soup
    (approximately 2 cups or 300 calories of any prepared brand with nutritional
    information, such as Healthy Choice, Amy's Organic, Campbell's Healthy
    Request). Eat with a mini whole-wheat pita (any brand, 70 calories), and a
    green salad tossed with one tablespoon of low-fat dressing (or 1 tablespoon
    balsamic vinegar and a small dash of olive oil).
    Afternoon Snack: One skim milk cappuccino or latte (optional teaspoon sugar
    or Splenda) or 8 ounces nonfat, flavored yogurt (any brand 120 calories or
    Sweet Wild Salmon: Mix together 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce and 1
    tablespoon honey. Drizzle over a 6-ounce wild salmon fillet and broil for
    10-15 minutes, basting every few minutes. Serve over a large mound of
    arugula leaves, with 1 cup steamed broccoli.
    Day Two
    Cereal with Fruit: 150 calories of any high fiber (five grams or more)
    cereal (i.e., Kashi Go Lean, Nature's Path Flax Plus, Barbara's Grain Shop,
    All Bran, Fiber One). Serve with 1 cup skim milk or low-fat soymilk, and ?
    sliced banana or ? cup berries. Optional coffee or tea (plain or with skim
    milk, no sugar)
    Turkey/Cheese Sandwich: Toast two pieces of reduced-calorie whole-wheat
    bread (no more than 60 calories per slice). Layer one slice of bread with 1
    teaspoon reduced-fat mayonnaise, unlimited spicy mustard, 2 ounces smoked
    turkey (or lean ham) and one slice of low-fat cheese. Top with a thick slice
    of tomato, onion and the remaining slice of bread. Handful of baby carrots
    and unlimited celery.

    6-ounce fillet mignon or sirloin (trimmed of fat, with optional 2
    tablespoons ketchup or steak sauce) served with 1 cup steamed vegetables.

    tablespoons wheat germ.
    Bauer's Power Salad: Unlimited lettuce and raw vegetables (tomatoes,
    carrots, cucumbers, peppers, mushrooms, etc.) mixed with 2-3 tablespoons of
    low-fat dressing (or unlimited balsamic vinegar and 1 teaspoon olive oil)
    and topped with one of the following: 4 ounces grilled wild salmon; 6 ounces
    grilled chicken breast, turkey breast, tofu, or ham; Plus, the option to add
    a 1/2 cup of either chick peas, black beans or low-fat cheese.

    entr?e (such as steamed chicken and broccoli). Request garlic or ginger
