It’s the start of the holiday season. Whatever you are celebrating, it can be stressful and draining. Here are some tips to stay on track AND have with NO GUILT!
These tips are from Tess Master, the blender girl, my health coach from the Skinny60 Program. The skinny60 program is a LIVE paid gut reset program, many similar recipes are on theblendergirl.com site
We want to celebrate with our family and friends during the holiday season, participate in culinary traditions, eat our favorite festive foods, and make beautiful memories.
But, eating these foods can wreak havoc in our bodies. It may be joyful while it’s going in, and then not so great afterwards.
Rather than depriving yourself of the foods that you love, “mindfully participate” in balance.
And, embrace the SK60® “Good, Better, Best, NOT Perfect” philosophy.
Find a Balance Of Self Care AND Fun.
I embrace a gentle and fluid approach to food during the holidays, and do not allow deprivation to dampen my holiday spirit.
I choose to feel ZERO guilt about food. I indulge in my favorite foods with family and friends, and offset the indulgences with some strategies that REALLY help me to eat festive foods that I don’t normally eat AND feel good.
Yes! You CAN participate in the festivities without the stomach pains, gas, bloating, fatigue, and all-round feeling of “Ugh.”
Practical Strategies To Avoid The Holiday Slump.
~Fill Up Your Freezer. Do some advance batch cooking this week, and freeze some of your favorite healthy SK60® meals so you have delicious healthy options you can pull out in between celebrations.
~Plan Ahead For Events. When you’re attending holiday parties and attending family group meals, offer to host so you can better control what the offerings are. Or, with potlucks or group contribution gatherings, make something healthy (that tastes indulgent) that everybody else will enjoy as well.
I do this all the time, and unless people need to know what is in the dish because of food allergies, intolerances, or taste preferences, I just slide that plate onto the table with all of the other food.
If you present your dish with qualifiers like: “This is gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, vegan….or it’s from this “program” I’m doing” etc” people just hear “Yuk”, they are skeptical about trying it, and it’s a hard pass. But, if you say, “Oh, this is so delicious, you have to try it!” or just put your food on the table like it belongs with all of the other “regular food”, people just gobble it up and enjoy it. And, when I do this…guess which dish is devoured first and everybody wants the recipe for? Yep…
Eat Before You Binge. When you know there will be very few healthy options at an event, eat something healthy before you arrive, so you’re not as hungry, and can participate in the event without eating as much of the things that you know will make you feel bad. (I also eat a bunch of sauerkraut before I leave and when I get home, and I take digestive enzymes with me. I also take an extra probiotic supplement when I get home and drink some coconut water kefir.)
Everything in Moderation. Enjoy your favorite indulgent foods in balanced amounts. A good approach is to eat one piece of apple pie with a scoop of ice cream, instead of two scoops. Or, even better: Get gluten-free pie and eat dairy-free ice cream. Best: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free Dessert.
Adopt the 80/20 Rule. In terms of your plate composition, put a lot of non-starchy veggies and leafy greens or salad on your plate (80%) to offset all of the acidic foods and provide some fiber. (A lot of holiday foods are lacking in fiber, are dehydrating, and can make us constipated.) And, reserve 20% of your plate for the animal protein, bread, and sugars that are more difficult to digest.
Satisfied not Stuffed. Eat until you feel satisfied, and not until you are completely full. Food takes time to hit your stomach, and this strategy will ensure that you don’t reach that “Ugh” place where you can’t even move off the couch. (We’ve all been there…)
Stay Hydrated. Animal foods, processed foods, alcohol, and other added sugars are all incredibly dehydrating. Drink more water-based beverages than you normally do (filtered water, herbal teas). And, either eat one raw meal a day (smoothie or salad) and/or eat something raw with every cooked meal, such as a side salad, cucumber, celery, avocado etc.
Water and Wine. When you’re drinking wine and/or holiday cocktails, a good strategy is to drink a glass of filtered water between every glass of alcohol. Better: two glasses of water between every glass of alcohol. Best: Drink non-alcoholic festive mocktails.
Push The Probiotics. Improve your digestion and maintain better gut health by including 1/4 to 1/2 of fermented sauerkraut (or kim chi) or fermented pickles (made without vinegar) with lunch and dinner. Other strategies include drinking coconut water kefir, coconut milk kefir, or Almond Milk “Kefir” in the morning or evening, and taking a probiotic capsule morning and evening. And, in consultation with your practitioner, using digestive enzymes at every meal during the holidays to support better digestion. (Digestive enzymes are not probiotics, but they support the “better digestion” agenda.) All recipes can be found on theblendergirl.com
Keep Moving. Better digestion and detox requires movement. Go for a walk after each meal to aid digestion and burn off some calories. Better: Do a workout each day.
Rest. Get plenty of rest and sleep in between celebrations. This will help your body to regenerate.
All Liquid Day. A great way to recalibrate after an indulgent day is to reset with a whole plant-based “liquid nutrition day” the next day. Smoothies and soups provide calories, fiber, and sustenance, and are easier to digest. So, take a break from processed foods, animal protein, gluten, dairy, grains, legumes, added sugar, and alcohol (all of the things that are more difficult to digest) to give your body a chance to “bounce back.”
Popular Holiday Recipes For Events.
SOUPS: For holiday soups, my show-stopper is the Thai Pumpkin Soup. You can also make this recipe with orange-flesh sweet potatoes.
SIDES: I will often volunteer to bring a side dish. Number #1 is always the Lemon Garlic Green Beans with Almonds and the Scalloped Potatoes. Nobody will ever know there is not dairy in them!
SALADS: The Caesar Salad and Orange Quinoa Salad are big winners.
DESSERT: First choice is always the Damp Lemon Almond Cake. Then, Cranberry Lemon Cheesecake or Chocolate Orange Cake. I do NOT like to spend hours in the kitchen making desserts, and all three of these can be made in less than 30 minutes hands-on time.
SWEET TREATS: Hands down, I always take are the Maple Cinnamon Pecans. Why? Because they are crazy-amazing and taste just like “regular treats”, but because they are SUPER EASY and keep in sealed containers for weeks. So, I double and triple batch the recipe and can take the same thing to several different parties. (Yep, let’s work smarter not harder.)
Happy Thanksgiving! (MAKE the DAMP LEMON CAKE!)
We hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend spending quality time with family and friends. Make some lovely memories.

Wowsers...Today spirit had me up at 2:30am and shifted everything with the activation. What I had planned on was revised.
This is LIVE so you'll hear how some of the things were also routed from the night before and how I had to re-calibrate. Bella didn't spend the night at the sleepover she was suppose to. be at She said she wanted to be held and no one would hold her there. (She and I still co-sleep together.) When she woke up, she decided to put the pine cones on top of the candles I had burning on our alter for our ancestors, I had to put out a fire!
The activation is 1.5 hours, you can take it 2 parts though! Just do it within the next 3 days and also I encourage you re-do it so it is reinforced. You can share this email with whomever you feel would align with it. Have them join our mailing list so they don't miss out on all the offerings I'm doing with this GIVE ECONOMY I choosing to live in.

And this is the playlist for the activation.
I'm not so techy. I figured out the sound bit but I didn't switch to speaker view. I have it on gallery but only one person shows because the others had their video off. It's actually perfect because its the harmony of the feminine and masculine.
Let's make this season one filled with joy, gratitude, and endless possibilities! I'd love to hear from you! What did you feel after doing activation? What you are celebrating? 🙌

How are you feeling this week? Exhausted or OverJOY?
I've had a week where I had to rest 2 hours every 3 hours. My left eye is twitching. When I chew I can see and feel the nerve. My equilibrium is off. I must be off my feet and wear my eye mask a lot for the sensitivity.
This makes me go within and ask my Magis and Muses what this is all about. Health conditions are gifts in disguise as it makes you more aware of your superpowers and intuition. Its not fun or easy in the 3D world unless you are aware of it. I choose to LAUGH. BEING with it instead of fixing it will transform it. In my ACCCE LIVE this morning, I share this. www.youtube.com/live/d_9ew6s7eAw?feature=share
Today is 7/7, the JULY portal. This week the Sirus Gateway opened and this energy wave is until 8/15. The 8/8 Lionsgate portal is such a powerful portal. I'll be sharing more about that this month.
Please be PATIENT this month and don't let the CREATIVE FIRE ENERGY burn you out. Delay is not Denial. Rejection is Protection. Dream and Prepare. REST. This is the time for you to clear your space and body to make room for your new adventures.
Please give yourself KINDNESS as you process the emotions and events. Choose to elevate and CELEBRATE every part of the process. Oh ..and LAUGH!
✨ Choose Better, Choose the More Empowering Thought ✨
You have the power to choose your thoughts. Forgive Yourself, and step forward by just choosing better. Every choice compounds and can change everything.
Remember, you are magic. Embrace the unique qualities that make you who you are. Embrace the changes happening around you and within you, as these changes are integrating to bring you closer to your true original self. This is an opportunity for you to CHOOSE BETTER.
✨ Wake up saying "I believe, I believe, I believe" Notice all the things sprouting and BLOOMING . ✨
Let's embrace July with a sense of playfulness, belief, and wonder. I would love to hear from you. Share your thoughts by replying to the email. I personally handle all my emails...it may take awhile, but I do get to it.
💫✨With Love and excitement
