What Do Your Dreams Mean?

I was just having this conversation with a friend. The subconscious plays such a big role in so many aspects of our lives. Do you know what it means when you are falling in your dreams? How about the classic of being in public without your clothes? Check out the video from BESTIE to find out!

You Can Still Celebrate Without Feeling Guilty!

If you are like me, you over-indulged on Thursday! I enjoyed every last bite of it!! Friday was the day to recover, have some leftovers, vow never to eat like that again…until the next feast. It is easy to feel guilty over eating a Thanksgiving meal, however the key is to get back to your healthy routine ASAP.

The month between Thanksgiving and Christmas is filled with parties, cookies and so many other treats that can sometimes be too tempting to pass by. And on top of the Christmas celebrations we still have the normal life happenings such as birthdays that are filled with more cake, big meals and maybe a glass of wine! I know I wouldn’t want my birthday to pass without a party!

As I have said many times before, there are so many meals and snacks to make healthy between Thanksgiving and New Year. When you have parties with food that isn’t so healthy, you can still enjoy it without guilt. If today is one of those days and you know there will be a feast tonight, make your breakfast and lunch healthy. I would do a Complete plant protein drink for breakfast and possibly a wrap for lunch to ensure something good. Even having a snack can help curb what you will do for dinner. Then blow out the candles and enjoy knowing you made good choices early!

Life is about celebrations and enjoying those celebrations! It can be challenging to get into the habit of healthy food choices but once you get going it gets much easier. And next year at this time your parties won’t be such a big deal. At least the food part won’t be!

The Healthy Sweet Potato!

You may not know it but your Thanksgiving table is full of health food! Now I can’t say anything about the quantities that will be eaten or the other ingredients that make the dishes, but I will share what health benefits you get from the main ingredient!

Is the sweet potato on your Thanksgiving menu? Well you are eating healthy!! Check out the video from FOODS4HEALTH!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Make Your Thanksgiving Dinner Healthy!

I have heard this for many years as people are looking to be healthier in their eating habits. I do applaud the better choices but also make sure they know this one meal won’t make a difference!

Not to burst bubbles or lead people down an unhealthy meal path, this is the truth! I remember having a conversation with a friend who had very poor everyday eating habits. She told me how she was making her Thanksgiving meal healthy. While I congratulated her on those choices I couldn’t help thinking how this should be one of her meals she really gets to enjoy if only she made some better choices during the year.

I know it is tough. Hopefully if your eating habits aren’t great and you are one of those making turkey day healthy, you use this as a spring board to better choices! If that is the case go for it! It is so important to understand that one meal won’t make you healthy and lose the weight you need to lose. Just as important is to know one meal won’t ruin all the hard work you did! People have that in their head that if they indulge on Thanksgiving, they will gain back all the weight. The key to understand is that if you work to change your eating habits throughout the year, you will naturally eat less as your appetite will decrease. That will make a HUGE difference.

Remember, so many are worried about what they eat between Thanksgiving and New Year, when they should be concerned about what they eat between New Year and Thanksgiving! Think about it.

Until next time…#eatthedamnsalad.
