Detoxifying Breakfast Recipes
1. Green Detox Smoothie
The Skinny: 264 calories, 1.9 g fat, 53.8 g carbs, 34.8 g sugar, 8.8 g fiber and 5 g protein per 16-ounce serving
This refreshing and nutrient-packed smoothie is full of heart-healthy fiber and potassium, thanks to the pineapple and banana mixed in. Spinach brings essential nutrients such as vitamin K (which helps keep bones and tissues in top shape) and vitamin A (which helps maintain healthy skin). While this smoothie may seem high in carbs, Doerfler says not to let that scare you away — just rein in your intake for the rest of the day. Craving something a bit more filling? Add a scoop of protein powder before blending.
2. Baked Blackberry Oatmeal
The Skinny: 237 calories, 12.4 g fat, 25.5 g carbs, 10.7 g sugar, 4.7 g fiber and 8.6 g protein per ¾-cup serving
Blackberries and oats up the fiber in this breakfast bake, making it a great go-to to keep you full until lunchtime. The pumpkin seeds, pecans, hazelnuts and sunflower seeds also offer healthy poly- and mono-unsaturated fats and plenty of texture. A small scoop of this fruit- and nut-filled dish would make a great snack, too.
