My Favorite Healthy Holiday Treats

My Favorite Healthy Holiday Treats

  The holiday season is a time of year that we focus more on our families, on giving to others…and on food!  And I’m all for that. I love holiday treats. What I don’t love is foods that cause me to have unpleasant digestive symptoms, breakouts on my skin, low energy, an unhappy mood, and tight clothes. No thanks! I’m a firm believer that the foods we eat really do influence our mood and the way we feel, including our self esteem.  And I also believe there are ways we can enjoy holiday treats and our favorite indulgent foods, that won’t wreck our healthy...

9 Things To Do To Bounce Back After Vacation (Or Anytime!)

  My family and I just returned from a week of travel, and I noticed I was feeling less energetic than usual, lethargic even. I felt heavy and my clothes were a bit snug. And my digestive system was less than stellar. After a vacation or a long weekend, it can be hard to get back into the swing with healthy habits. On vacation we typically allow more treats than usual. We order fries when we normally wouldn’t, we have the chocolate cake (every night), we skip the workout, we stay up too late. And that’s fine, that’s why it’s vacation! It’s just for a short...

4 Tips For Eating Healthy When Dining Out

  I truly prefer to eat as many of my meals as possible at home. In doing so, I know that I’m eating foods that I’ve prepared with the freshest organic produce and ingredients that I trust. And, I put a huge amount of love and heart into the food as I prepare it for myself and my family to eat. To be clear, eating meals that we’ve prepared ourselves is absolutely the healthiest choice. There’s no question what’s in the food that we’ve prepared ourselves, and restaurant portions are also way too big and we all tend to overeat because of that....

Create Rituals To Master A Healthy Lifestyle

Ritual (rit-u-al): noun, a series of actions or type of behavior regularly and invariably followed by someone. Our daily and weekly rituals are important. They keep us on track throughout the day and the week, and give us something to look forward to. Rituals should be things we enjoy. When we know something we enjoy is coming, it’s easier for us to keep going with our day and our week. The ritual serves as a reward. Our daily and weekly healthy lifestyle rituals are no different. They help to keep us on track with our goals, and they become something we enjoy and look forward to. They...

Overdid It? Here’s How to Get Back On Track

  In the days after a holiday, it’s safe to say that a lot of us aren’t physically feeling our best. Even when we have good intentions to stay on track with our eating during a holiday, often we still end up eating more than usual, and eating more sugar and processed foods that we normally do. But here’s the good news: if we get back on track right away, our bodies can recover from the overeating and blood sugar roller coaster we’re on. The most important thing you must do first is to practice forgiveness with yourself. No need to beat yourself up and cause your...
