The holidays are wonderful for a number of reasons. It’s a special time of year when you can spend quality time with your family and friends, actually like it when it snows, and pretty much have a license to eat and drink in excess. But following all the roasts and the cookies and the cocktails, I like to change it up for the new year. Here is a day’s worth of recipes that I think bring it back to the basics: food that is fresh, flavorful, healthy and delicious.

BREAKFAST: Avocado-Banana Smoothie

LUNCHPan-Seared Salmon with Cauliflower and Pine Nuts, and Broccolini and Sweet Sesame Salad

DINNERQuinoa, Fennel, and Pomegranate Salad

DESSERT: Roasted Pineapple Smoothie

All of the excessive eating, heavy partying, and sleep deprived nights have caught up to most of us and that holiday bulge is a nuisance that has to be eliminated from the waistline as quickly as possible.

Many of us take our livers for granted, but did you know that the liver is a filter for the body and needs to be purged of toxins to stay healthy and function optimally? The liver is the largest and most complex organ in the body and it cleans and filters our blood 24 hours a day.

A stressed, toxic liver can lead to many health problems, also including weight issues and cardiovascular & degenerative diseases. Read More
