You eat, you drink and you party like it’s 1999. But once that the tryptophan has worn off and you’ve woken from your food coma, it’s time to clean up. No, we’re not talking about dirty dishes or kitchen counters — we’re talking about you. Before you reach for those leftovers to remix into a post-Thanksgiving-pocalyptic meal, check out these light (and filling), turkey-free ideas that you’ll want to whip up and get in your belly, stat.

1. Autumn Arugula Salad With Roasted Acorn Squash: Move over, pumpkin. Slices of roasted acorn squash, goat-cheese crumbles, crispy shallots, pomegranate and bacon top a crisp bed of fresh arugula in this fresh salad, drizzled with a honey-dijon dressing. Um, you had us at bacon. (via Bites of Bri)

2. Superfood Bowl: Heading out for Black Friday? After you throw on your strategic shopping outfit, build a superfood bowl that will power you through. This one’s filled with lentils, beets, kale, Brussels sprouts, sweet potato, avocado, and sprouts, and topped with an easy lemon dijon dressing. Seriously, how good (and good for you) does this look? (via Not Your Standard)

3. Butternut Squash, Rocket and Avocado Salad With Balsamic Glaze: Step. Away. From. The. Pie. You won’t miss dessert with this sweet-and-savory salad. Mix up a handful of giant couscous with roasted butternut squash slices, cube up an avocado, dice up a red onion and top a rocket salad with all the ingredients and a decadent balsamic glaze, and you’ve got lunch. (via Don’t Feed After Midnight)

4. Buckwheat Mushroom Risotto With Squash and Toasted Hazelnuts: We didn’t think healthy risotto existed either, but this blogger took the challenge and came up with a gluten-, dairy- and refined-sugar free dish. (via Clean Eating Goddess)

5. Cauliflower Crust Breakfast Pizza: If you haven’t tried eggs on pizza, you simply must. It’s divine. But to throw it on a cauliflower crust with pesto, sundried tomatoes and cheese? Forget about it. (via Brit + Co)

6. Full-of-Veggies Noodles: Don’t let the temptation of calling for takeout get to you. Break out the wok and whip up your own, healthier version of lo mein. If you thought your delivery guy was fast, this recipe will seem like lightning. (via Sweet Kabocha)

7. Freekeh Salad With Chicken: The name of this dish definitely caught our eye. Freekeh is a young, green wheat berry, and the delicious whole grain this dish rests upon. (via Food Fanatic)

8. Ginger Peanut Hoisin Tofu: Hello, lover. This tofu is so insanely good. And considering you’ve just filled yourself to the brim with turkey, you’ll gladly enjoy a bowl of this good stuff. (via The Kitchen Paper)

9. Warm Halloumi Butternut Squash Salad: Halloumi is a sweet, nutty, grillable cheese (have we ever met a grillable cheese we didn’t like?) that is even more delicious when paired with caramelized, roasted butternut squash over a bed of superfood spinach, kale and rocket and tossed with a simple balsamic + EVOO dressing. Best enjoyed with a glass of white wine. (via A Dash of Ginger)

10. Couscous Trio: So nice they named it twice, and we whipped it up thrice. Check out our easy-peasy tutorial for Indian Spiced Couscous Salad, Italian Couscous Panini with Cheese and Greek-Style Couscous Stuffed Peppers. (via Brit + Co)

11. Chopped Kale With Prosciutto and Figs: A quick peek at this salad’s cast of characters and you’ll want to throw all of them into a bowl and devour immediately — fresh (or dried) figs, prosciutto, Gorgonzola, kale, endive, radicchio tossed with a walnut mascarpone dressing. We warned you. (via A Thousand Threads)

12. Kale and Walnut Pesto: We can’t get enough kale, but turn it into a pesto to transform the blank canvas that is pasta and we’ve found our new fave remix pesto. (via World of Pastabilities)

13. Slow Cooker Quinoa, White Bean and Kale Soup: Get out there and take advantage of those sales. But before you head out the door, crank up the crockpot so you can come home to this rustic Tuscan soup for dinner. (via Chelsea’s Messy Apron)

14. Healthy Quinoa Chicken Curry Bowls: Spices work wonders for your digestive system, and the most delicious way to get a combination of them in your body is with a bowl of curry. You’re going to want that second bowl. (via Pinch of Yum)

15. Simple Caramelized Salmon Recipe: This sturdy pink fish has oodles of health benefits, and is as filling as any piece of poultry. With a caramelized herb crust, it’s best served with a side of couscous or salad for a top-notch dinner. (via Maya Kitchenette)

16. Warm Sautéed Spinach With Feijoa in a Balsamic Beurre Blanc: This is the ultimate indulgence — in salad form. Beurre blanc translates into “white butter” and is an essential French sauce that serves as the dressing for this dish. Throw in dried blueberries for a bite of sweetness and you’ve hit the jackpot. (via Inspired Edibles)

17. Garlicky Spaghetti Squash With Chicken, Mushrooms and Kale: When anything is described as “garlicky,” we’re automatically in. Swap out starchy pasta for nutrient-rich (and just as yummy) spaghetti squash and top it with a delicious veggie medley. (via The Roasted Root)

18. Indian-Spiced Veggie Burgers: These are anything but basic veggie burgers. Make extra so you can crumble them atop a bed of greens for a simple (read: easy) weekday lunch. (via Brit+ Co)

19. Wheat Berry Salad: The crew of veggies in this wheat berry salad is solid — zucchini, bell pepper, fennel, olives and pistachios (or whatever nut you have on hand). Chop up your leftover herbs (basil, mint), shave some pecorino or Parmesan and drizzle a simple dressing for a salad that will keep in the fridge until next week. (via Not Your Standard)

20. Wild Rice and Butternut Squash Salad With Maple Dressing: This dish is good enough to bookmark for next year’s Thanksgiving feast. A maple herb balsamic dressing to coat roasted butternut squash, kale, spinach, leeks, dried cherries, basil and wild rice = dream seasonal salad. (via HeartBeet Kitchen)
