your "I ate way too much rich food yesterday" meal?

Dinner party last night resulting in a massive consumption of really rich foods. I'm looking to take it a little lighter. something restorative. usually I make miso soup when I feel this way. Whats your technique?
Cold and/or low fat. Plain white rice and lemonade is good one for me, as is tabouli. Once in a great while, a tin of beef madrilene with some pepper on it, well chilled.
Iced tea with mint is also nice, alongside a small piece of white fish, grilled or poached with ginger.
Ochazuke: green tea or simple bonito broth, over rice. (with a little seaweed and umeboshi or pickle sprinkled on--none of the richer possible accompaniments like salmon or roe)
half a head of iceburg lettuce, tossed in EVOO, then salted, then tossed again in red wine vinegar
quenches my thirst and sits lightly in my system after a lot of rich food.
if it's been many days of rich food, say travelling for business, I might add a couple meals of stirfried brocolli and lots of bran buds to that mix
sashimi and a bowl of miso usually do the trick for me .... the other thing I do is take Betain (HCL) it's a digestive enzyme found in a good health food store's supplement dept .. there are even natural digestive enzyme supplements for fatty foods. I take them just before I eat .. always helps.
