5 Ways to Enjoy Thanksgiving Day 2020

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:

  • Fit Men Cook: 100 Meal Prep Recipes. Kevin Curry and his clan are super fun to follow on IG. This is a good stocking stuffer! 
  • Take ZEN. Stress leads to overconsumption of junk food & gut inflammation. Zen is as it sounds - calming.  This supplement has really helped me turn off my working mom brian and provide a natural path to calmness. A friend recently said, “You sound happy, what’s up?” I told her I was taking ZEN, haha!

  • Dr. Shade’s Bitters No.9. If you’ve been following me for a while you know despite eating uber healthy I’ve struggled for years with bloat, gas and fatigue. After conducting lab testing on my hormones, gut, and detoxification system I discovered I had blunted brush borders. Basically inflammation in my gut lining which disrupts my ability to produce adequate amounts of enzymes to help absorb nutrients and break down macronutrients. Digestive enzymes and bitters have played a key role in supporting my functions. I love Dr. Shade’s Bitters or Support Digestion use the code TAKE20 at checkout for a 20% discount! This is exactly what you may need to survive your Thanksgiving meal :) 
  • Hydrate! If you find yourself craving sugar and salt, your body is likely depleted in minerals. If you’re doing a lot of holiday toasting make sure to drink a glass of water before and after your cocktail. Another option is to make a healthy vitamin water and drink it before you head out AND the morning after.

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.

Holiday Hack

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.
