Lindsay LaPaugh from Soul Food Living gives advice on how to keep healthy and happy this holiday season!
From Lindsay:I. Remember it’s the holidays it should be a time for celebration.
-You want to be able to enjoy yourself
-It is important to have a good time, and stay focused on what you are grateful for
-it is okay to indulge but you want to do it in a healthy way, and not overindulge II.Take time out for yourself-DON’T wait for a new years resolution
-take a bath, light a candle, read a book, have a cup of tea, meditate, yoga
Props: lavender bubble bath, lavender neck wrap, meditation pillow, gratitude journalIII.Focus on controlling blood sugar levels
-When blood sugar spikes you: get craving, become moody, lose energy, and you start to binge.
-when you have a controlled blood sugar level(stable) you burn through body fat, you have more energy, less mood swings, and get better nights sleep.
-My 7 and 14 day detox programs focus on helping people learn how to control their blood sugar levels
a. Breakfast ideas-eggs with veggies, smoothies, steel cut oats and mixed berries prop: steel cut oats, fruit, organic free range eggs.
b. Lunch-salad, wraps lots of veggies, keep it light and let it help you energize you for the rest of your day prop: organic mixed greens as base, hummus, avocado, ezikel bread
c. Dinner aka Holiday Party-Visualize how your night will go before you get there. Remember it is NOT your last meal. Take a look at what your options are and decide where you want to indulge, start with a little, you can always go back for more.

I have designed 7 and 14 day programs to help you control your blood sugar levels, and it includes shopping lists, and videos on what you should eat and what to stay away from.
You get products and certified low glycemic foods that you can eat during the program (and are so good you will want to continue to eat them)
