Congratulations—you've made it to the brief lull between the craziness of holiday parties and the never-ending feast that is Thanksgiving. Hopefully, you used our tips to indulge in a slightly healthier version of the year's biggest meal, but even the biggest kale eater can get caught up in that second (and third, and fourth) slice of pumpkin pie. While we fully support the indulgence (it's a holiday! Enjoy your food with your family and friends!), we're also well aware of the power of food to make us feel great or terrible.

Soup is a wonderful way to fast track your way back to a state of bodily stasis. It's easy to make, perfect for packing to the brim with vegetables, and the recipes are almost always forgiving—feel free to sub in whatever you have lying around (we're looking at you, leftovers). Because they're cooked, soups are also a bit easier on your digestion than smoothies or salads, making them a gentle way to help your system bounce back. Whip up your favorite, go for a walk outside, drink a ton of water, and you'll be feeling better in no time.
