10 resources for healthy and easy recipes

It's a new year, and many of us are trying to eat more healthfully. To spare you the insane, highly restrictive, and mostly unsustainable detox diets and juice cleanses that abound at this virtuous time, we designed a week-long menu here at Vox with the help of nutritional consultants Matt Fitzgerald and Yoni Freedhoff.

Our main goal with the Anti-Detox Diet, as you can probably guess from the name, was not to perpetuate pseudoscientific health claims like gluten phobia or impose impossible food rules. Instead, we delivered delicious, enjoyable, and achievable eating suggestions.

The diet is easy: every recipe uses fewer than six ingredients and only takes a few minutes to make. The diet is also based on facts most everyone can agree on: we can stand to eat more vegetables, fruits, and whole food, and less added sugar and processed food.

Today, we checked in with readers in a Facebook chat to learn about how they're finding the Anti-Detox Diet.

The main questions we heard were, "What do I do after the week is over?" and "Where can I find more healthy and easy recipes?"

Here are a few awesome resources we find helpful. Some even have nutrition information for their foods and allow you to search by dietary requirements.
