The Holidays are a busy time for so many reasons; Christmas shopping, decorating, baking & cooking extra meals, entertaining, preparing for the winter ahead, and meeting deadlines at work. While most of these are fun, they can also leave us stressed and overwhelmed!
We may be spending more time in the kitchen than usual, but this doesn’t necessarily provide us with the supportive nutritional foods that we desperately need during this busy time!
Therefore, I encourage you to carve out (at least) 15 minutes this week and plan out some ways you can show yourself some love by incorporating health & nutrition into your Holiday traditions!
Here are some of my recommendations;
Like a Scout: Be Prepared!
Be a Trail-Blazer
Spread Digestive Cheer!
Include probiotic foods/drinks with meals & snacks
Other easily digested options that can pack in lots of nutrients include soups, stews & smoothies.
One sure way to feel good is to include veggies in every meal & snack!
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
