Halloween. And more specifically: leftover Halloween candy.
Sometimes, post-Halloween feels like the beginning of the end — like it’ll just become increasingly impossible to live a healthy lifestyle, because the leftover Halloween candy binge will just lead into Thanksgiving, followed by several weeks of holiday luncheons, parties, and assorted craziness.
Living healthy during the holiday season can definitely have its challenges. However, that doesn’t mean you have to throw in the towel, and resign yourself to gaining extra weight, running down your immune system, and generally feeling bloated and burned out.
Bringing healthier habits into your holiday season is much easier when you have a plan, and are armed with some “clean” recipes. I also encourage my clients to look at their calendar closely, and commit to the dates they can live as clean as possible.
