Healthy for the Holidays

Join me here, and on Instagram, in the counting the days to Christmas, opening up my virtual advent calendar each day, to see how you can keep the holiday season healthy. For more healthy tips, recipes, and a year of mindful journaling, preview and purchase the Conscious Living Daybook here.


Eating naturally sweet or salty whole foods will help you curb those junky cravings. Natural foods are obviously more nutritious, and they will also provide satiety, without those blood sugar spikes. Have fruit, nuts and seeds always on hand, and prepare or chop up some vegetables so you have a convenient "go to" snack.

Where's the beef?

I made this "Rainbow" Chili for my family the other night, and it was
eaten up with great enjoyment. They didn't even realize until at the end
of the meal that there wasn't any meat in it! ;)

Any day Protein-packed Pancakes

As a child, I grew up looking forward to every Sunday when my dad would make us pancakes. It was always a treat, especially since he would attempt to make them into all sorts of shapes – letters ("C" is easy), animals, flowers... and, of course, Mickey Mouse! Pancakes from scratch are really just as easy as from pancake mix box. 

Make them naturally packed with protein by using nuts, chia seeds and coconut flour. Load them up with lots of fruit, nuts and/or seeds in between layers and on top with a warm fruity compote for a more nutritious (and fun) breakfast any day of the week!!!
