Go-To Detox Foods: What the Serious Eats Staff Likes When We're Feeling Chubby

Don't worry, the gang here is not embarking on a cleanse. We like fat too much to subsist on blenderized foods and obsessive gum-chewing. But our jeans have been feeling a li-ttle snug lately. Plus Dumpling came back from his holiday vacation (spent at Auntie Aya's) looking all svelte, which has inspired us to follow suit. (Don't worry, we're doing our best to fatten him back up again.) Here are the go-to detox foods we crave at headquarters during these chubby times:

  • Clementines
  • Oatmeal
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Fibrous cereals
  • Cabbage
  • Chickpeas
  • Kale
  • Cauliflower
  • Grapefruit
  • Quinoa
  • Fish
  • Spinach
  • Avocado
  • Fennel
  • Sardines
  • Lentils
  • Pickles
  • Beets
