Turkey Day Menu and Fat Burning Workout

Mid-November signals that Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, and as you make preparations to host the once-a-year feast or maybe just need to bring a dish to share, there are ways you can stay on-track with your health goals and not end up feeling like a stuffed turkey.  

While time can be limited in the days leading up to major holidays, it can often give way to a variety of excuses for why it’s okay to skip a workout or overindulge. Once Thanksgiving rolls around it can feel like the tipping point of a holiday rollercoaster that won’t slow down until January and is reason why now is so important to develop and stay committed to a healthy eating plan and workout regime.

Curry Coleslaw

I have always loved fresh salads, but like my good friend Anika, I don’t always LOVE greens. I just never feel satisfied after eating them. Instead, I like salads with bold flavors, a little bit of crunch and a whole lot of chew. This curry salad is the perfect fit for that criteria. The flavors are bold, the crunch factor is definitely there, and it pairs perfectly with grilled fish, chicken or salmon.  It literally takes minutes to whip up and is dairy free and gluten-free.  Enjoy!

Smoothie Bowl

If you are keeping up with social feeds and posts, you’ve probably noted that smoothie bowls are all the rage right now!  A sister or close cousin to our friend, the protein shake, this breakfast or snack option can be a great way to spice up any healthy-eating fatigue you may be experiencing and is a great way to slow us down – as it requires you to eat with a spoon versus solely just slurping it down with a straw.

Sparkling Grapefruit Fizz

Plain water doesn't always cut it. And with warmer weather on the horizon and Spring Happy Hours being scheduled – sometimes you need something a little bit different to sip on while influencing your fluid intake.  One of my all-time favorite ways to increase my water intake is to add fruit to it – specifically grapefruit.  Not only does it provide a nice tart flavor – but it also is packed with Vitamin C – perfect to support your immune system during prime time allergy season.  Check out below for a quick and easy mocktail recipe – perfect to serve next to a healthy, lunch salad or as a post dinner relaxer.  Enjoy!

Healthy Kitchen: Portable Egg Cups

Growing up, I always thought eggs were reserved for special occasions only—whether at a restaurant with my grandparents or at baptism brunches. 

Add to this the fact that eggs had, at one time, come under considerable fire for their high cholesterol content (we’ll address that in a moment). It was enough to make me reserve eggs for an occasional breakfast food only. However, with so many health benefits associated with the consumption of eggs, we should be eating them frequently.
