60 Delicious Detox Dishes

by Nick

With Football season in full swing and baseball playoffs happening, I’ve found that my weekends and sometimes week nights are spent eating a lot of excellent (but not excellent for you) food and drinking copious amounts of beer.

I definitely enjoy a good plate of wings (check back on Thursday for an example) and a beer or a few, but after many days of that, my body is usually screaming for some sort of veggie besides celery dipped in blue cheese dressing.

So over the weekend I set out on a Internet hunt of sorts to find 60 dishes that might help you detox after a long weekend of excess. Why 60? Well, because it fits nicely in a 20 by 3 square of photos.

Make a few of these and your body can thank me later.
