10 Ways To Recover From A Food Coma

Never want to see food again, you say? Try this.

Drinking more water helps flush out toxins, fights constipation, fatigue, and dry skin, and it boosts immunity from colds and flus.


Not an Egg McMuffin. Try one of these:

1. Oatmeal with some nuts

2. Fruit + yogurt

3. A hard-boiled egg and some "green juice"

Seriously — set a timer to go off if you need to be pulled out of the Internet or something to remember to eat. It will keep you from getting REALLY HUNGRY and then eating a huge meal.


No pile of food you consume should really be bigger than your fist. Except maybe vegetables.

Potatoes do not count.


Cutting carbs is actually counterproductive. Instead, avoid white bread and white pasta and up your intake of whole grains like quinoa, farro, brown rice, barley, oats, and soba noodles, and legumes like lentils.

Roughage means foods high in dietary fiber. And that means foods that will make you poop! So like:

1. Beans

2. Whole grains like steel-cut oats, whole-grain granola, whole-wheat pasta, and quinoa

3. Fruits and veggies like apples, broccoli, squash, blueberries, and kale

4. Nuts


Let's say today you make a big batch of quinoa and roast a bunch of sweet potatoes. Then you can use them through the week in different dishes like these:


Double Broccoli Quinoa

Coconut Ginger Quinoa Salad with Apples

Baked Quinoa Patties


Sweet Potato Burritos

Roasted Root Vegetables with Lentils

Roasted Sweet Potato Carrot Soup
