And just like that, the holidays are upon us again! 🙂 How you get through the holidays is really all about your mindset and the choices you make. Will you choose a calm, more relaxed holiday season and say no more often? Or do you prefer to go all out during the holiday season and participate in as much shopping and festivities as possible? Whatever your choices, here are a few tips to make the holidays more enjoyable!
If you are eating out a lot and attending holiday parties where you are not the one in charge of the kitchen, having enzymes on hand is of utmost importance! Enzymes will help you digest rich and fatty foods and also lessen your immune system reaction to foods that are potentially allergenic for you. Lessen the bloat, gas, inflammation, and feeling awfully full with Digestzymes. Digestzymes support optimal digestion of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, and the breakdown of casein and gluten. Digestzymes also include the enzyme lactase, which helps break down the dairy sugar lactose!
And to keep your gut happy, be sure to take probiotics. Probiotics will also help you fight off colds and flus that are going around! Please email me for a probiotic formula suggestion.
If your holiday events include a couple of glasses of bubbly, wine, or cocktails, then I suggest the following protocol to avoid feeling sluggish the next day, especially if you have to work:
One N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) capsule before you go out. And one NAC capsule when you come home, before bed. NAC is an amino acid that is a precursor to glutathione, the body’s most powerful antioxidant! NAC helps promote optimal detoxification.
The next morning:
One VegeCleanse Plus smoothie for breakfast. In a blender, mix 1 scoop VegeCleanse Plus powder with 1/2 cup raw coconut water (electrolytes), 1/2 to 2/3 cup frozen berries (antioxidants), a couple big handfuls of a pre-washed greens blend with kale, chard, and other greens (to further support detoxification), and 1 tsp L-Glutamine powder to soothe the gut. You can also add 1/3 ripe avocado or 1 TB almond or cashew butter to add some good fats! Add more liquid if you like a thinner consistency smoothie.
VegeCleanse Plus Powder is your multi vitamin/mineral/antioxidant/detox/protein/fiber formula to help you bounce back and start the day off right! This is my absolute favorite protein/detox powder!
