Dream Big my friends, dream big!
Ever feel like the holidays are a marathon of to-do lists and eating and drinking and being off schedule?? You know my mantra...Keep. It. Simple. Here are 5 tips to do just that this week!
Healthy Holiday Tip #7 - Indulge Smartly
Thought you'd like this one! Essential because you're going to indulge over the holidays, so do it smartly.
Aim for a low-sugar dark chocolate with at least 80 percent cacao, preferably organic, and enjoy sparingly. For extra indulgence, smear some almond butter on top of it.
Healthy Holiday Tip #6: Keep it Simple - Drink a Shake
You're spending a long weekend at your in-laws and your breakfast options include cinnamon-raisin French toast or blueberry pancakes. Do you indulge or skip breakfast? Neither!!
You are in charge of your nutrition and it's okay to say no to less-healthy options! After all, you are the one who has to live in your body, not anybody else.
A protein shake can rescue you in even the trickiest situation for a fast, filling, cravings-busting meal. Whether I'm at the airport or on the road, I always keep vegan (but not soy) protein powder with me. I always travel with some of "my food": shake packets, Quest bars, 100 cal packets of almonds, small packets of almond butter, dried fruit. When I travel for longer trips and check my luggage which includes my $15 Hamilton-Beech $15 travel blender from Target - it fits perfectly in my suitcase - so I can make my shakes each and every day.
Here are two good recipes to try: "The Virgin Diet Shake" and Chocolate Raspberry Vegan Smoothie.
