Holiday gift season is upon us! Show your love with healthy, homemade treats that you can whip up in your kitchen in an hour or less.
If the prospect of seasonal socializing without a drink in hand makes you anything but jolly, here’s a healthier holiday drinking plan to help you maintain control so you can welcome the New Year with no regrets – and a lot less work to do to get back on track:
As the holidays parties and meals are added to our calendars it's easy for our minds to shift to an “all or nothing” way of thinking when it comes to our dietary limitations. This way of thinking about the holidays is not only no fun, but also sets us up for failure again and again. The 80/20 mentality is a valuable tool that shifts perspective and creates success when eating, especially in times like the holidays when our dietary habits seem to bend and break.
Looking for a Fall inspired dessert that won't set you off track or ruin your cleanse? Look no further than this twist on the classic apple crumble. This nutty apple coconut crumble is loaded with healthy fats that help stabilize your blood sugar and keep you full and satiated. There is no added sugar which makes it a cleanse-friendly dessert and let nature's candy really shine.
There’s always room for a little indulgence over the holidays, but there are lots of simple changes you can make in your own kitchen add nutrients and nourish your body without sacrificing taste at all. Here are a few fantastic ones (all dairy free and gluten free!) to try this Thanksgiving.
I talked to many clients this week who are anxious about their healthy eating going out the window over the Thanksgiving holiday. This comes up especially if you’re travelling to visit family where you may have less control over what you’re eating.
For those times when we know you’re trying your hardest, or even for those times when you just want to break loose but need to bounce back fast, sometimes you need a little extra help. Our holiday survival kit does just that. We’ve addressed the top concerns when it comes to navigating the holidays – helping us maintain our inner balance when it comes to digestion, stress, sleep, and even detox, so we can face the holidays head on.
We say it time and time again: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! And this can be especially true during the holidays. A healthy and nourishing breakfast keeps you satisfied and energized, allowing you to really enjoy your Thanksgiving, which usually includes cooking a delicious meal, catching up with family, and resisting those tempting treats!
Before heading out to the witching hour this Halloween, eat a scoop of protein-packed pumpkin hummus and veggies.
The holiday season can be one of serenity, calm, and even a little joy if you play your cards right.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It’s a time to enjoy family and friends and to celebrate the bounty of seasonal food at this time of year. Over the years, I have gathered a handful of Thanksgiving recipes that have become my go-to for a delicious and, yes, healthy meal. So, in addition, to cooking the turkey on the outdoor grill and to simply roasting sweet potatoes (no marshmallows please), you’ll find these dishes on our Thanksgiving table.
