Where is your environment set up to help you stay on track and where does it trip you up? What can you do to make your actions automatic around food, exercise, and stress reduction? You can design your life for automatic success.⁣

Strategies for Healthy Life Design⁣

- Plan your meals.⁣

- Arrange the foods so that the healthiest ones are the most accessible and appealing. ⁣

- Cut up veggies and fruit and have them in little glass containers stacked for easy access. ⁣

- Stock healthy snacks (such as nuts, seeds, or grass-fed or organic turkey, beef, or buffalo jerky) so that they are easy to grab on the go when you’re in a hurry.⁣

- Make grocery shopping a weekly ritual.⁣

- Keep healthy snacks around.

Green Goodness!
Hadn’t juiced in a while bc for me it’s more of a summer thing buuuuuut I had an amazing one at our local organic market the other day that I *had* to copy. So I did.
Juicing is not something I’d recommend daily, as it can spike blood sugar levels and doesn’t have much fiber. But as an occasional treat, it’s certainly a healthy alternative to sugary drinks & other snacks. Another tip- i usually don’t drink it all at once. Instead, I’ll sip on it through the day and maybe make this 16oz last 2-3 days even. Making it yourself is the way to go since you can make sure not to use any added sugars.
Simple➡️ 3 small apples. 2 oranges. 3 large handfuls spinach. Mint. Ginger.
So fresh + light + zingy + nutrient dense.
If you own a juicer- make this. If you own a blender- make this and strain the pulp with a nut milk bag/cheesecloth.

Announcement! New *Free* Group Starting!
-Accountability Buddy Club; or ABC-
Staying healthy during the holidays can be hard. We all feel it in one way or another. Sometimes it seems one day you are on track, checking off all the “healthy boxes” and the next- you feel awful and can’t quite figure out what happened. Or maybe it’s more of a gradual slide for you, with one little thing here or there that suddenly becomes big things.
Whatever it looks like for you, I’m creating an accountability group for the 30 days, taking us from Mon, Dec 9 to Fri, Jan 3.
We will have our own group on FB.
It will be a safe, supportive space from which we can all gain health help, wisdom, tips, probably some laughs, community, and most of all- accountability.
Once daily, you will post briefly about the 4 topics provided. This is designed to be simple & no pressure- just supportive, thought-provoking and helpful.
I will have periodic health prompts and be moderating the group.
Questions? LMK.
Group starts Monday!

Today's WOW: SOUP!
thanks to all who participated in my Soup vs. Salad survey last week! since the voting was close (60% of you want soups; 40% want salads), today is the start of my
Soup Series.
and because i aim to please, eventually i'll switch to a Salad Series!


Perspective | Is chocolate healthy? Alas, the answer isn’t sweet. Here’s why.

No more tricks about chocolate. And maybe this is a lame way to say Happy Halloween, but...
it’s the FLAVANOLS that give chocolate its health benefit, and you’d have to eat an excessive amount of chocolate to reap this, which would then lead to risks of weight gain (duh), hypertension, diabetes, etc etc. You get the idea.
And, apparently some of the chocolate “research” studies have been industry-funded.
Takeaway- eat a very small amount of the darkest possible, and treat it as a treat!

washingtonpost.com The flavanols in chocolate could have potential benefits. But you’d have to consume a ton to achieve that.
