Ready to sit and wallow in your own fat disgrace after watching the Victorias Secret Fashion Show tonight? Us too!
In an effort to at least FEEL better about what were putting in our mouths, weve rounded up our top five favorite detox snacks. Theyre high in protein, low in carbs( yay ), full of fresh vegetables, and will maintain you full. You may not look like a VS model, but youre fucking trying your best, dammit.
1. Autumn arugula salad
Grab your arugula and layer with pomegranate seeds, fresh sliced cucumber, pecans, roasted butternut squash, and avocado slices. The good fats will maintain you full while the veggie freshness will make you feel trs chic. Youll feel like youre at a goddamn spa.
2. Grilled shrimp with mango rice
Thanks, Cooking Light, for giving us island flavors without giving us fat ass. This recipe combines grilled shrimp with a coconut rice dotted with mango, herbs, and peppers. Merely 340 calories for a decadent dinner? Count us in. Feel free to even skip the rice and only serve up grilled shrimp, mango salsa, and, like, maybe a shot of rum.
3. Caesar salad with salmon
A decadent Caesar salad on a detox listing? Fucking duh. Toss Romaine hearts with a light Caesar dressing, a few dashes of Parmesan, then top with a piece of baked salmon. Greens plus protein equal mean abs.
4. Steak and grilled zucchini
Yes, you can have a fucking steak even if youre trying to stay thin. I entail, if Anna Wintour can stay a size 00 and have one EVERY DAY for lunch, youll be fine. Prepare a 4 oz. steak in a cast iron pan with a little butter, salt, and pepper. Serve over oven-roasted zucchini OR zucchini noodlesfor a light but yummy dinner. We dont even need a recipe for this shit.
5. Chicken, veggie, and rice bowl
Chicken plus veggies plus rice? Its like Chipotle without the e-coli! Not only is this shit filling, but it has plenty of vitamins, protein, and good fat for a day that you may have ruined with cookies, popcorn, and Diet Coke. Feel free to adapt the recipeI entail, its a bowl with stuff in it. Were pretty sure you cant fuck it up. And if you dont want rice, replace it with a betchier grain like farro, barley, or quinoa.
