The holiday season is upon us! Bring on the gut rot and belly bloat!
I know, “This year will be different.”
But, it doesn’t matter who I speak to, come January 1st you’re in need of a good full body reset.
In the next few weeks I plan to deliver my favorite holiday tips, tricks and hacks to having a holiday season that’s not filled with multiple trips to the bathroom, pockets full of tylenol & Tums, or wearing out your favorite pair of stretchy pants.
My favorite tip may sound unrealistic but it’s still my favorite tip….
#1. The 90/10 Rule: 90% of the year, spend 90% of your time, consuming 90% “good for you fuel.” Yes, that means spending 90% of your day eating foods and consuming messages which lift you up and not wear you down. Why??? So come the holidays you don’t have to worry about depriving yourself or going on a “diet” before and after. Just worry about enjoying yourself!!
A few of my favorite items to support your 90/10 efforts leading up to Thanksgiving:
Vitamin Water Recipe:
8 ounces coconut water
1 teaspoon raw apple cider vinegar (my fav brand)
2 inch piece of ginger
juice from one lemon
Stir or shake the ingredients to combine, and sip. The raw apple cider vinegar will enhance your digestive enzymes and balance PH, while the coconut water will mineralize your body.
Enjoy the sweet potato leftovers in one of my favorite Fall superfood soups!
SWEET POTATO CAULIFLOWER SOUP
1 large head cauliflower
Few dashes Garam masala (optional)
3 medium to large sized peeled sweet potatoes, cut into 1′′ pieces
1 sweet onion, diced
6 cups vegetable broth
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 400 °F. Wash and cut cauliflower, then sprinkle lightly with Garam masala. Place cauliflower onto parchment covered baking sheet and lightly drizzle with olive oil. Roast about 20-30 minutes. In large stockpot, bring sweet potato, onion, garlic, salt and broth to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer until sweet potatoes are tender. Add in cooked cauliflower and blend half then combine.
Food regulates metabolism and creates building blocks for healthy hormones. Don’t cheat yourself by consuming crap. Eat well, live well, and follow your gut.
