healthy-mumShould I…shouldn’t I…that is the question when presented with a platter of irresistible goodies…

Yes, it’s that time of year again…your will power will be tested and your pants may get a little tighter…but does it have to be that way???

By all means, enjoy the time with your family and friends….be merry and cheerful…but also be healthy.

 

 

PLAN

Santa makes a list and checks it twice, why shouldn’t you? Seriously, planning is your ticket to success.

Making a quick Meal Plan can save you time, money and energy. Make it a habit to take 10 minutes on Sunday to write one out. It doesn’t have to be fancy.

Get picky…don’t eat it if you don’t like it.  Instead of saying you don’t like it, or you are watching your waistline…just say you aren’t hungry…no one can argue with that.

People love when you share the gift of health so either bring some of your own treats or make as a hostess gift…..

Chocolate Almond and Sesame Bliss Balls

Maca Cacao Balls

No Bake Cocoa Candy Cane Balls

Raw Raspberry Cream Filled Chocolate Treats

Raw Chocolate Rum Balls

Do what’s realistic and what you love

Not into writing Christmas cards…give someone a call – everyone loves this personal touch

Don’t want to bake…don’t or pick something simple. Or try all the tasty raw treat suggested.

What can you do before the holidays?

-Freeze food so that in a pinch you have a great meal, snack or smoothie you can pull out. – like your greens, Quinoa meatballs, Sausage Shepherd’s Pie, or a Smoothie pack. Don’t forget about soups and stews.

-Plan out who you would like to write Christmas cards too. What gifts to you need to buy for people, and what gifts can you wrap now.

What to do on a daily basis….

Sleep – no sleepy…no nicey…we all need sleep and if you aren’t getting enough you are going to be crabby…so get some shut eye.
Move Your Body – I know the craziness of the holidays makes this one a toughie…but no excuses…plan it into your life right now and treat it like the most important “do not miss” event!

Check out these great exercise routines….

Keep in mind to….

shorten your routine and increase the intensity.

Stretch and breath

Sugar and junk food will destroy your immunity…throw into the mix a lack of sleep, a lack of movement and an added dose of stress and BAM…you are down for the count.

Get your daily dose of Vegetables & Fruits with this simple shift, pump up your Vitamin D intake, add enjoy a nutritious smoothie like this Green Vanilla Maca Madness, get some fresh air and some shut eye.

 

As Dr. Susan Wilder suggests, avoid “The Three O’s”

over-idealizing

over-scheduling

over-indulging

Trying to keep up with the Joneses, neglecting sleep and chill time, and overdoing everything are a prescription for unhealthy holidays.  Make and take time for yourself to chill, do right by your body and engage in active experiences with people you care about.

Post Exercise Nutritionbusy mama juggle

The precise nutritional choices before, during and after a workout depend upon what activity you did, for you long and at what intensity. It can also depend on what your goals are!

To keep this simple, refueling after a workout is a smart idea. It is the best time to eat any starchy carbohydrates because your glycogen stores have been reduced (glycogen is a major fuel source during a workout). Having a green smoothie with protein is a great option or a sweet potato and a protein choice. Continue reading »

This no bake recipe is super simple and super delicious. For step by step photos, please click on her link below.

  • 6 medjool dates, cut in half lengthwise with pit removed
  • ¾ cup dairy-free chocolate chips, melted
  • 48 raw pecan halves

  5. Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler or saucepan with a bowl over top.
  6. Spoon ½ teaspoon of melted chocolate into the middle of the fan of pecans. Flip the turtle over and press down gently so that the chocolate touches the parchment paper.

  8. Drop each turtle into the melted chocolate and move around until it’s back is covered. Remove from the bowl and place back on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining and let cool in the freezer for 10 minutes for the chocolate to harden.

Thin is in, but FAT is where it’s at…getting healthy fats into your diet will:

cause your blood sugars to stay stable (the hormone glucagon is secreted) and your body enters FAT BURNING mode. The hormone glucagon moves fat from storage and therefore will be used as energy thus shrinking your fat cells. Fat from storage=burned fat=weight loss/stability.
