Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

2013 is rapidly coming to a close. Are you ready for this year’s holiday season?  Here are some tips for staying healthy, and some health-promoting gift ideas.


5 Tips to Stay Healthy this Month & Plan for a Year of Wellness

1. Start each day with a warm glass of water with lemon juice and sea salt to hydrate and refresh.

2. Remember your food sensitivities and avoid holiday treats that contain these ingredients, especially dairy and wheat! Instead splurge on a delectable treat within your food plan (ie. a hot chocolate made with raw cacao and coconut milk!)
