Happy bellies for vibrant lives

Holiday Guide

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Its Christmas time and I am certainly feeling the spirit of the holidays. The lights, the music, the shopping, the cookies and the parties. We use the holidays as an justification to party, socialize and eat all the things! But don’t feel bad about it. Get in the spirit. Enjoy and be merry.


But let’s remember a few things:

        * Don’t forget the basics! Drink enough water, eat veggies at every meal, move your body, rest enough, and be present with your friends and family. These are very basic principles of health and wellbeing. When these are in place, you are giving your body the best chance at recovering from overindulgences of the holiday.

        * When you can, make better choices! There are lots of great snack options on the market these days. Take advantage of when you are providing your own food. Don't know how to make the best choices? My snack guide is below.

        * When you are ready, reset. I wrote an amazing book called the5 Day Holiday Reset” for this exact purpose. Pick it up today to learn to reset your body, mind and soul in this crazy season.
