It's easy to have too much of everything when you sit down to Thanksgiving dinner because everything from the turkey and potatoes to the pie is so good. You may not feel so good the next morning though after overindulging at Thanksgiving the night before. Here are some of the best places to help you cleanse your system after your thanksgiving feast.

Acai Republic
632 El Camino Real
Tustin, CA 92780
(714) 617-4962

Acai Republic has many ways to get an infusion of the things you need to get all of the bad stuff out of your system after Thanksgiving. You'll find a variety of smoothies, juices and even big bowls of fruit at this Brazilian juice bar. And although there may be a lot of fruit in the bowl, it will be a much lighter meal than what you at for Thanksgiving. Two of the great juice options for helping you feel better are Mr. Green (greens, pineapple and grapes) and Samurai Lemonade (pictured, with ginger, lime and honey). Acai Republic has an extensive menu including smoothies, fresh fruit juices, coffee, sandwiches and more to help you start your detox.

When you overload on things like carbs, you might crave something not only healthy, but organic. Organic Tree has a full menu of juices and smoothies that will get you back to feeling the way you should. The Oz and Emerald juices are highlights here and are filled with greens that will definitely help in your recovery. If you really want to clean out your system though, try three or four days of the store's cleanse program, which also includes a nutrition guide, conference, yoga, exercise, body work and meditation.

On your way to Balboa Island, PorroVita would be a real easy place to miss. However, when you do find it, you'll also find several ways to clean out your system after indulging the night before at Thanksgiving. In addition to juices and smoothies, you can get acai bowls that will give you a needed injection of nutrients. And, if you've overindulged on alcohol specifically, try the Luv Ur Liver juice blend (pictured) with beets, ginger, lemon, apple, cucumber and carrots. PorroVita also has the benefit of being close to the beach, and a a beach walk is never a bad thing when you're feeling less than spectacular.
