Real Talk with Gigi Stewart: Top 5 Healthy Eating Tips for this Holiday Season
1. Load up on in-season produce
Take advantage of in-season produce, even in winter months. Cruciferous vegetables (like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage) and root vegetables are in season and fantastic for roasting, eating raw and blending into smoothies.
2. Indulge nutritiously
Never feel deprived! Use healthy all-natural ingredients to create healthier versions of the foods you love most! Try my Protein Cookie Dough Fudge!
3. Remain calm and eat more plants
Remember to breathe and enjoy the holidays. It is a time of joy, so try to breathe each day and keep stress at bay. Eating a nutrient-rich plant-based diet can go a long way in keeping your body feeling rejuvenated each day, even with the holiday hustle bustle.
4. Blend your breakfast
Start the day with a powerhouse smoothie, rich with protein, healthy fats and fruits and veggies to rev up your metabolism and give you that burst of energy to keep you going all day long! Tons of recipe inspiration here.
5. Don’t forget to hydrate
Bathe your cells in pure water throughout the day to keep all the biological processes working as they should and to keep you feeling your best.
