The pile of leftovers is shrinking. There are only a handful of measly, stale cookies left in the jar. And your belt has had a homemade hole or two added to it. It's time for a diet intervention.

It's a new year and your body is carrying the guilt of holiday excess, probably around your hips. In the blur of alcohol, appetizers and desserts that was the last two weeks, the only thing you probably haven't eaten enough of is a vegetable. And while detox diets aren't everyone's cup of tea, it's easy to add back doses of healthy foods into your diet. Like vegetables, delicious, delicious vegetables.

Don't think of this as a form of dietary punishment. Think of it as a New Year's resolution that you will actually complete.
