Before you begin your holiday cooking, I wanted to tell you something important.
Overindulging in all things tends to happen during the holidays. Sugar, butter and alcohol galore. It happens. But I’m going to be straight with you here. The number one thing you should NOT do during the holidays is worry about what you eat.
There, I said it.
The holidays are all about joy, family, love and laughter. So why feel guilty for eating three too many cookies or 1 too many eggnogs. As you know, I am all about balance. I never want to give up my cupcakes and sweets and no matter how many different “healthy versions” I try, they never taste as good as the original.
This is an invitation from me to you. To stop worrying about what you eat during the holidays. To stop stressing about the scale, the food, the overindulging because it will only make you more anxious. Part of living a soulful lifestyle, means using everything in your life as fuel. You want to surround yourself with good, positive fuel as much as you can. And I typically say that you should get that fuel from clean foods. But during the holidays your good fuel will be coming from laughter, love and the goodness of being surrounded by people who make you the radiant person that you are.
So, pretty please (with a cherry on top) have that macaroni and cheese or that piece of double chocolate cake. It’s one day. It’s not going to kill you. And being happy with your loved ones is way more important than gaining a pound.
