For the fifth year in a row, Bon Appétit has just published their post-holiday, get-healthy eating plan called The Food Lover’s Cleanse. It’s two weeks’ worth of recipes for breakfast, lunch, a snack, dinner, and dessert and it is similar to BuzzFeed’s Clean Eating Challenge, but written for a slightly different style of cook. (Disclosure: I created and edited the Food Lover’s Cleanse along with author Sara Dickerman when I worked at Bon Appétit for several years.) This year it looks even more beautiful and flavorful than ever before. Even if the idea of cooking every one of these recipes seems overwhelming, take a look at them because there are certainly some fantastic and smart ideas for combining flavors and using leftovers — and hopefully you’ll be convinced to follow along in full.

The cleanse starts this Friday, January 2, so you should get that shopping done (click for the full shopping list from Bon Appétit) asap.
