Most people go through at least one or two detox diets per year so that they can get into shape and feel good about themselves. Some of us skip detoxing since we take good care of our bodies all the time with a healthy diet filled with good food and moderation, as well as regular exercise. But since that’s a lot of work and effort for some people and the easy way out is to ‘detox,’ these simple recipes have become something that many people rely on quite regularly. So in the interest of making sure those who would rather detox have some recipes that will assist them in the process, we thought we’d round up five recipes for detox diets that will get you feeling good temporarily in time for some big event or to motivate you to do better as a whole. We’ve chosen recipes that are a lot healthier than detox drinks or juice diets, and that’s going to make your upcoming diet a lot healthier.
