Food is fundamental to health—it is the primary thing that makes us sick or well. And that’s also true for our brain! Yes, that’s right, food heals—the body and the mind! Today’s guest totally gets that. While most doctors simply don’t care about nutrition, Dr. Masley is one of the rare MD’s to take it seriously. Right from the start, he knew that if he wanted to make a real difference to his patients’ lives, he needed to do more than simply tell them how many grams of fat or fiber to eat: he had to share recipes that are delicious, easy to prepare, and that nourish the heart, brain and soul. He’s our kind of M.D.! Listen now!

 

Dr. Masley is a physician, nutritionist, chef and creator of the number 1 health program 30 Days to a Younger Heart. He’s also authored the books 10 Years Younger, 30 Day Heart Tune-Up, and The Better Brain Solution. His goal is to help people improve their brain health, reduce cognitive decline, and feel better than ever.

 

Having witnessed the devastating impact of memory loss on his family, Dr. Masley is on a mission to stop it from affecting more people. His latest book, The Better Brain Solution, shares lifestyle strategies that are proven to make your brain younger, sharper, quicker and more productive.

 

Here are some of Dr. Masley’s brain-boosting tips:

 

  • FOOD
    • Make sure you add these foods to your diet:
      • Plant pigments: Colorful fruits and vegetables (like blueberries, leafy greens, beetroot, etc.), cacao, matcha green tea, organic coffee (in moderation – 2 cups a day), and red wine (also in moderation!).
      • Smart fats: If you’re on a low-fat diet, stop! Your brain is made up of 60% fat, so you need smart fats to keep it functioning at its best. Good sources include nuts, seeds, olive oil, and avocados. Also take an omega 3 DHA supplement.
      • Herbs and spices: These are packed with anti-inflammatories and anti-oxidants which fight free radicals and keep your brain young. The best combinations are Italian herbs (like rosemary, basil, oregano, etc.) and curry spices (like turmeric, cumin, fenugreek, etc.).
      • Probiotics: Your gut is your second brain. Most of the neurotransmitters needed for proper cognitive function are made in your digestive system, so keep it healthy by including gut-friendly foods like miso, sauerkraut, and kombucha.
    • Avoid the following foods:
      • Refined carbohydrates (sugar, flour): These carbs hike up your blood sugar and are the number one cause of memory loss!
      • Nitrosamines: These are preservatives used in processed meats like bacon, hot dogs, sausages, etc. They are neurotoxic, and increase your risk of cancer and diabetes.
      • Tuna and large fish: They’re high in mercury, which is toxic to our brains!

 

  • FITNESS
    • Physical exercise: Both aerobic exercise and strength training are essential to keep your brain young.
    • Mental exercise: Never stop learning! Gaining new skills, taking classes and feeding your brain with knowledge creates more neural connections and improves your brain speed.

 

  • STRESS
    • Stress actually shrinks your brain! When you’re stressed, your cortisol levels go up, and this raises your blood sugar which increases your risk of artery plaque and heart disease. Take some time out every day to meditate, make sure you get proper sleep, and do something that makes you feel good. Romance and sex are good for both your heart and your brain!

 

Doing all of these things not only boosts your brain but also even prevents Alzheimer’s disease – the sixth leading cause of death in the United States

 

 

If you want to improve your cognitive health, there’s no better place to start than Dr. Masley’s brain quiz. It only takes 90 seconds, and you’ll get his Better Brain Solution Shopping List! Don’t wait until you have symptoms: take action today to protect your brain, prevent Alzheimer’s and keep it fit and healthy for years to come.

Being hailed as “Sex and the City for Food,” The Food Heals Podcast brings together experts in the field of nutrition, health and healing to teach you the best-kept natural secrets to being a hotter, healthier, happier YOU!

The Food Heals Podcast is hosted by Allison Melody and Suzy Hardy – two self-proclaimed natural chicks who will rock your world and change your beliefs about health! This sexy, savvy duo provides eco-friendly advice on a variety of issues including the healing power of nutrition, living authentically, turning your passion into your career, choosing the best natural health and beauty products, the benefits of a plant-based diet and so much more!

 

There are over 77,000 man-made chemicals in the environment right now. The average woman wears 26-28 cancer causing chemicals, just from cosmetics. We’re facing an onslaught of toxins every single day and this doesn’t just affect your overall health. It also causes weight gain because the body stores toxins in adipose (fat) tissue. Listen now!

 

If you want to lose weight and improve your health, detoxing is the number one thing you can do. But with so much conflicting advice, it can be hard to know where to start.

 

Wherever we are, emotionally, health-wise, we are the sum of all our actions up to this point. Symptoms like irritability, low mood, fatigue, joint pain, low libido, not loving life, are simply a result of a lifestyle too full of components that stress our body. In the new year, we all focus on adding things in: more exercise, more supplements, more green juice. But we can also shift the focus on to what we can take away as well: slow down and begin removing some of the things that are dragging our health down.

 

Dr. Stephen Cabral is a naturopathic doctor specializing in both functional and Ayurvedic medicine. He developed his passion for health & wellness after going through severe health complications at the age of 17. He saw over 50 different doctors, tried over 100 different treatment protocols, but still saw no hope of recovery.

It wasn’t until he met an alternative health doctor whom explained to him how he got here and how he could become well again, that he began his recovery process. It was at this young age that he knew his life would be dedicated to helping others rebalance their bodies and renew their health.

 

Today, Dr. Cabral uses the best of ancient healing combined with state of the art functional medicine testing (blood tests, stool tests, biomarkers, etc) to give his patients a full spectrum view of what is going on in their body and the tools to rebalance their health. Dr. Cabral’s mission is to spread what he’s learned through his studies in India, China, Sri Lanka, Europe and the US to help people return to a state of energy, vitality, and happiness.

 

He’s authored the best-selling book The Rain Barrel Effect, and hosts the podcast The Cabral Concept. If you have any health questions, he’s probably already answered it—we’re completely addicted to his show!

 

Dr. Cabral’s tips for sustainable changes you can make today to help your body cleanse, detox and heal:

  • Fast for at least 12 hours a day. If you’re constantly putting things into your digestive tract, it doesn’t have time to “catch up” and filter out the bad stuff so instead it is stored. When you fast, you allow your system to go into autophagy, a process whereby your body kills cancer cells, releases toxins, rejuvenates and repairs itself!
  • Crowd out the bad foods. Make 60-80% of your diet fresh produce
  • Sauna (infrared or traditional)
  • Epsom salt baths
  • Dry body brushing in the morning
  • Banish stress from your life

 

If you want to kick-start your health with a detox, check out Dr. Cabral’s 21-day detox plan, which combines the best of ancient Ayurvedic wisdom with the best modern medical knowledge. You can transform a lot in 21 days: reduce inflammation, balance blood sugar and hormones, increase your energy, vitality, and libido. This 21-day plan is the next best thing to actually working with Dr. Cabral. We’ve tried it and LOVE it!

 

What you’ll learn in Episode 186:

  • What makes Dr. Cabral say “There’s no such thing as disease.”
  • The difference between functional medicine and a traditional MD
  • How to lose 15 pounds in 21 days
  • Why everyone should fast at least 12 hours each night
  • The surprising effect of fasting during the day
  • A detox practice that pulls heavy metals out of your body
  • How acid blockers affect your health
  • Why your liver is your best detox friend
  • The best foods for your liver health
  • The best foods to eat at breakfast
  • How to detox your blood

Being hailed as “Sex and the City for Food,” The Food Heals Podcast brings together experts in the field of nutrition, health and healing to teach you the best-kept natural secrets to being a hotter, healthier, happier YOU!

Affectionately known as Mary Poppins for the new millennium, Gorgeously Green’s Sophie Uliano is a New York Times bestselling author passionate about helping people live life in a more holistic way (check out her previous episode 178). And you know our other two guests from episodes 112, 151 and 179, Joy and Jay the Jing Slingers, superfood organic chefs, experts in anti-aging, longevity and tonic herbalism, and authors of the Food with Benefits recipe book. They’ve cracked the code to create culinary masterpieces packed with health-boosting superfoods and tonic herbs. We couldn’t think of anyone better to start the year with! Listen now!

 

Let’s set those New Year intentions! How can we feel more empowered, more gorgeous, and healthier than ever?

 

First tip: resolutions are out! New year’s resolutions simply don’t work. In fact, over 90% fail. Why? One reason is because when we set ourselves rigid goals, we set ourselves up to not carry them through long term, and this leads to feelings of shame, blame and judgement. The underlying emotion is: I’m not good enough. And that feeling makes positive change almost impossible, and keeps you feeling like a failure. So much for a “happy” new year!

 

We all want change because we think it’s going to make us happier. It might be losing weight, getting a new job, buying a bigger house, getting married. But that’s the lie. Because happiness doesn’t come from external factors. Happiness comes within. If you can be happy by being grateful with what you have right now, you’re vibrating at a higher energy, and that’s when beautiful things happen.

 

So why not ditch the new year’s resolutions, and have a new year’s evolution instead? Evolve to be more at home and comfortable in your own skin, be more present, and be there for those who matter in your life. Here are our New Year VIP Health Panel’s tips on making your 2018 happier and healthier than ever!

 

  • Take baby steps—otherwise you won’t keep it up long term. Make small manageable goals that are sustainable.
  • Return to the present—when you’re present, time becomes more malleable. It’s not about the coming year: it’s about the now.
  • Change the way your talk to yourself. Set intentions in a gentle way and trust in the flow of the Universe.
  • Have a rampage of gratitude. Wake up and be grateful for your pillow, the roof over your head, the comfort of your body… If you start your day with gratitude, you open your heart to see the beauty all around you.
  • Open yourself to guidance. The Universe will steer you to the right path.
  • Expand your perspective to get yourself out of the ego state that locks you into your mind.
  • Be willing to take what you want—there’s no need for shame.
  • Be grounded in the present—what’s going on with you right now? Journaling can help you work out what you’re feeling, and let go of difficult emotions.
  • Realize that the ups and downs are all part of the experience of life, and part of being human. Experiencing the darker emotions helps you to appreciate the lighter ones.
  • Allow yourself to feel the whole range of your emotions. Even depression can lead you to something better.

 

Tips to release weight in a healthy way:

  • Know where your weight came from.
  • Be really clear about why you want to lose weight and where you want to be.
  • Get to know your body, it will help you work out the best diet for your unique needs.
  • Weight loss is a metabolic and hormonal response—you need to take a long-term sustainable approach. Crash diets don’t work. It’s about quality of food and nutrients.
  • Exercise is a huge component of health—strength training can turn your body into a fat burning machine. Challenge yourself to do something you couldn’t easily do last week, or change it up and do something completely different.
  • Focus on a whole food plant-based diet.

 

 

What you’ll learn in Episode 185:

  • Why New Year’s resolutions are bound to fail
  • How to make change sustainable
  • A powerful mantra to return you to the present moment
  • How to stretch time
  • How to surrender to the flow of the Universe
  • How to balance your left and right brain

Being hailed as “Sex and the City for Food,” The Food Heals Podcast brings together experts in the field of nutrition, health and healing to teach you the best-kept natural secrets to being a hotter, healthier, happier YOU!

The Food Heals Podcast is hosted by Allison Melody and Suzy Hardy – two self-proclaimed natural chicks who will rock your world and change your beliefs about health!

Cows, pigs, and hens are sentient beings, just as intelligent as we are. They feel loss, love, pain, shame, fear, and solidarity. They want to be free, nurture their young, and play. Yet the factory farming industry is built with total disregard for these animals’ needs. It’s all about maximizing profits. The good news is that there are amazing people doing ground-breaking work to expose animal abuse and change legislation. Listen now!

 

Cody Carlson heard about Mercy For Animals when he was a private investigator for a business intelligence firm. Moved by their work, he reached out to the founder, Nathan Runkle (check out his episode). Before he knew it, Cody had quit his job, grown a goatee and become an undercover animal rights investigator.

 

It was a wild ride. Working undercover as a farm hand is exhausting physical work and emotionally intense. He witnessed how over 4,000 cows were kept constantly pregnant, saw newborn calves torn from their mothers and left to die, or sold for slaughter. He saw how much the animals wanted to play, to be loved. His footage of workers’ cruelty and the atrocities committed in the farm was broadcast by the media and resulted legislation that changed how these animals are treated. And that was it. He was hooked. He went to law school and is now one of Mercy for Animal’s attorneys.

 

Part of the work Cody is doing with Mercy For Animals is overturning ag-gag laws. Instead of reforming, the animal farming industry lobbies to amend legislation and keep their inhumane practices within the law. From around 2010, ag-gag laws made it a crime to conduct undercover investigations that reveal what goes on in factory farms. Mercy For Animals is winning the fight against ag-gag laws, but some states still have them: MontanaUtahNorth DakotaMissouriKansasIowa and North Carolina. If you’re a resident of one of these states, you can help overturn these laws by contacting your local representative and encouraging them to speak out.

 

Are we ever going to see a world without slaughter houses? YES! With the rise of plant-based milks, dairy profits are plummeting. With growing public support, a radical movement away from meat and towards plant-based eating, changes in legislation and corporate policy, and delicious plant-powered options, we’re going to see the end of factory farming in our lifetimes. Additionally we can all be healthier, protect the environment, help the animals, and feel better than we’ve ever felt by ditching factory-farmed meats and adding more plants to our diets.

 

 

What can you do today to help the animals?

  • Contact your law-maker and encourage them to speak out about animal cruelty and ag-gag laws.
  • Join an animal activism group. Mercy For Animals is the leading international farm animal protection organization. You can sign up on the website and check out how you can get involved.
  • Share Cody’s video of footage of how dairy and animals are produced in modern farms. You can check out the viral video at http://www.whatcodysaw.com/.
  • Join Hen Heroes to take part in animal activism.
  • Reach out to the Oink writers’ group if you want to get involved with writing letters to the editor and raising awareness.
  • If you’re a California resident, you can help get legislation passed that would change the game for animals raised in California. Half a million signatures are needed—you can volunteer at PreventCrueltyCA.com/volunteer to sign up. Please share the link with your friends!
  • You can also donate. Donations help Mercy For Animals run undercover investigations and petition for real change in animal protection legislation.

 

 

Cody and Leslie’s tips to eat healthier and plant-based wherever you live:

  • Veganize your meal when you eat out (for example, you can order Denny’s scrambled egg platter and swap the eggs for potatoes).
  • Stop eating processed foods.
  • Eat real, whole foods.
  • Always look at the ingredient list. If it doesn’t read like a recipe, put it down.

This sexy, savvy duo provides eco-friendly advice on a variety of issues including the healing power of nutrition, living authentically, turning your passion into your career, choosing the best natural health and beauty products, the benefits of a plant-based diet and so much more!

We’re here with one of our favorite guests, the super cool, super stylish Leslie Durso (check out Episodes 95 and 96 for her story). She’s a vegan chef, healthy living educator and has been plant-based since she was 8 years old. Leslie grew up in an Italian household, making vegan versions of whatever her mom was cooking. Now, she loves nothing more than sharing her knowledge and passion for veganism with as many people as possible. Her farm fresh, plant-based recipes are broadcast to over 130 countries, and she’s just partnered with Plant Lab Culinary School offering pop-up cooking courses all over the world. Leslie has also created vegan dishes for all the menus at the Four Seasons Punto Mita in Mexico, where she will be running retreats in 2018. Listen now!

 

With just one week until Christmas, how can we bring more plant-based recipes and more love to our holiday? How can we bring more acceptance to the table, particularly to those who might not completely understand our healthy choices? Leslie’s answer: cook for them. Make something so good they are begging you for the recipe. Let them start the conversation. When it comes to spreading the vegan word, nobody wants to be told what to do, they want to be inspired. Let’s inspire them with delicious food. You can find tons of tasty, easy-to-make vegan recipes on Leslie’s website.

They’ve created elixirs with the same love and passion for health. Listen now!

 

Those who have tried Chinese medicine know that herbal tonic blends tend to taste really awful and bitter! Sage and AnnaBlanca knew that if they wanted to share their love of tonic herbs, they had to make them taste good. Their superfood elixirs are free of gluten, sugar, GMOs, nuts, dairy, and soy and most importantly… delicious!  Mixed with almond milk, they taste like they shouldn’t be good for you! These elixirs are super clean, pure, don’t spike your blood sugar and are mixed with powerful Chinese herbs like cordyceps, lion’s mane, and astralagus to support vital energy.

 

 

Addictive Wellness’ Tips for Longevity

AnnaBlanca and Sage base their health routine on the Chinese Three Treasure System: Jing, Chi and Shen. Think of it as a candle. The Jing is the wax and wick of the candle — the building blocks, the Chi is the flame — the active part, and the Shen is the purpose — your higher spirit, the light in your eyes, how positively and beautifully you can affect the world and others. The stronger and healthier you are, the more positive impact you can have on the world. How do you get there?

Here are Addictive Wellness’ tips:

 

  • Support your Jing, the energy reserve you’re born with (your core kidney adrenal energy) by:
    • Including herbs that support your Jing, like he-shou-wu and cordyceps.
    • Removing sugar from your diet. Sugar breaks down collagen in your skin and ages your cells on a molecular level.
    • Increasing your intake of healthy fats.
    • Identifying where you’re leaking Jing: crazy lifestyle, stress, partying, processed foods, drugs, not getting enough sleep, etc.
    • Increasing your intake of healthy fats.
    • Protecting your skin! AnnaBlanca’s secret sunscreen solution is Astaxanthin algae extract which helps your skin withstand the sun from within.

 

As you build up your Jing, your Chi gets stronger, and your Shen—your light and inner spirit—shines brighter. This means you won’t just feel healthier and more alive, you’ll also be able to have a more positive impact on the world around you.

Being hailed as “Sex and the City for Food,” The Food Heals Podcast brings together experts in the field of nutrition, health and healing to teach you the best-kept natural secrets to being a hotter, healthier, happier YOU!

The Food Heals Podcast is hosted by Allison Melody and Suzy Hardy – two self-proclaimed natural chicks who will rock your world and change your beliefs about health! This sexy, savvy duo provides eco-friendly advice on a variety of issues including the healing power of nutrition, living authentically, turning your passion into your career, choosing the best natural health and beauty products, the benefits of a plant-based diet and so much more!

 

Imagine a world where instead of 1.6 billion coke drinkers, there are 1.6 billion (and more) people drinking green juice. Today’s guest, fitness and nutrition rockstar Drew Canole, is passionate about making that a reality. Because what we consume plays a massive role in how we feel. The future of humanity depends on us balanced, thriving human beings and that starts with what we choose to put in our bodies. We can change the world through health and nutrition. Listen now!

 

Seven years ago, Drew was 45 pounds overweight, pretty unclear about what his life purpose was, going out all the time, and drinking too much. But we all have a wake-up moment, and once Drew had his, there was no turning back. He knew he had to contribute to the world and make a positive difference. He went on a 90-day juice cleanse, lost 40 pounds, gained clarify, focus, energy, and a ton on online support! He’s on a mission to help people experience radical joy, connect to oneness, live their purpose, and be the healthiest, fittest version of themselves. He recommends a delicate blend of self-love, listening to what your body is telling you, and cellular nourishment.

 

Drew is the founder and CEO of FitLife.tv, where he shares inspirational content about healing, longevity, mindset, and nutrition.  We love him and his videos, so go check him out!

 

Drew created a delicious brand of superfood powders, Organify. We can’t get enough of them and Drew has very generously given Food Heals Nation a hefty 20% off with the coupon code FoodHeals! The range of products includes green powder for cleansing and fat burning (with spirulina, chlorella, moringa, matcha, ashwaganda, chlorophyll and more… all the greens without the “green” taste), reishi gold drink for immunity (with reishi and antioxidant turmeric), red anti-aging juice (with acai and cordyceps), protein powder (with added enzymes for better digestion), probiotics, and everything you need to rebalance your body and enjoy a happy, healthy, fit life.

 

Drew’s tips for your best morning routine:

  • It starts the night before: swap blue lights for red to increase melatonin and help you sleep
  • Start with a gratitude list
  • Hydrate with high-vibe water
  • Listen to music from your childhood
  • Commit: change doesn’t happen overnight. Commit to your new morning ritual for at least 21 days. That’s when the magic begins to happen.

Growing up, Katie’s family, like many, showed love through big portions of low-quality food. During her childhood, Katie was an athlete, exercising up to 6 hours a day and eating whatever she wanted. However, once she got to college, she gained 60 pounds. She fell in love with feminism and used it to present a mask of not caring about her weight. Deep down she wasn’t happy with her body and her relationship with food became dysfunctional.  Suffering from a combination of overeating, bulimia, and exercisorexia, her days were focused around working out, eating food and avoiding food.  She was able to overcome her eating disorder thank to the Overeaters Anonymous 12-step program. Listen now!

 

Katie learned that freedom isn’t as much about not having any boundaries, but more about creating boundaries that help you be the best version of yourself.

 

Early in her life, Katie wanted to make a big impact. Passionate about life and wanting to live big, she now uses her business to do just that. She married her two interests – business and raising women up – to create Biz Women Rock, a resource provider and podcast that helps entrepreneurial women grow their business and live a life of freedom and purpose.

 

Her podcast is one of our personal favorites and provides the tools you need to create the business of your dreams. Her private Facebook group is a hub for businesswomen from all over the world to share their ups and downs, advice, masterminds and more. You’ll also find all the details for Katie’s transformational events. Join her at her Business Retreat in a luxury mansion in Orlando from December 1-3 or see Katie (and Allison) live at Podfest MultiMedia Expo on February  8-11 in Orlando (We’ll be there too—get your tickets here!), and Social Media Marketing World in March 2018.

 

And if you want to watch a beautiful visual image of the podcast movement and why so many of us are choosing this platform to share our message, then check out Katie’s husband, Chris Krimitsos’, beautiful documentary The Messengers.

Being hailed as “Sex and the City for Food,” The Food Heals Podcast brings together experts in the field of nutrition, health and healing to teach you the best-kept natural secrets to being a hotter, healthier, happier YOU!

The Food Heals Podcast is hosted by Allison Melody and Suzy Hardy – two self-proclaimed natural chicks who will rock your world and change your beliefs about health! This sexy, savvy duo provides eco-friendly advice on a variety of issues including the healing power of nutrition, living authentically, turning your passion into your career, choosing the best natural health and beauty products, the benefits of a plant-based diet and so much more!

Today we’re back with two VIP guests: Jay and Joy, aka the Jing Slingers. We can’t get enough of these guys! Check out episodes 112 and 151 for their inspiring story.

 

The Jing Slingers’ mission is to elevate, educate, and illuminate their clients with tonic herbs and superfoods. Their beautiful book Food with Benefits groups together recipes for the foods you love – perfect for the holidays. That means ice cream and donuts, mashed potatoes and gravy, and even eggnog and pecan pie! Food is at the epicenter of what Jay and Joy do, but it’s food with a difference, food that loves you back. Super healthy, super easy, cleverly conscious food that will supercharge your life force! Listen now!

 

We always preach: eat more plants! But it’s more complex than just “eat kale.” Did you know that many plants contain lectins? These natural plant-producing proteins stop certain insects and humans from eating them but can also cause inflammation. Some of the foods highest in lectins also happen to be the highest in antioxidants, too, like tomatoes, quinoa, goji berries, eggplant, which can seem confusing! But don’t worry. Jay and Joy share the secrets to removing lectins from foods and getting the most nutritional benefits from any plant. The magic is in the preparation!

 

Tune in and discover how you can have a healthy Thanksgiving, stick to your plant-based diet and avoid the dreaded muffin top!

 

The Jing Slingers’ top tips to prevent colds and flus during the holidays:

  • Activated charcoal binds toxins out of the intestinal tract.
  • Vitamin D3 helps your t-cells fight infections and viruses.
  • Mitolife DHA oil supports your immune system.
  • DNA detox rids your body of toxins and heavy metals so that you can feel strong, awake and revitalized.

 

Holiday Gift Guide:

If you’re into detoxing, or have a friend or loved one who’s into it, then we’ve scored the PERFECT discount code for you. The Jing Slingers have created the DNA Detox, an aqueous Zeolite solution that gets right into your mitochondria to detox your body at a cellular level. Zeolite is used in hazardous situations to mop up toxic spills and make sure they don’t contaminate the soil or ground water. Jay and Joy have formulated it into a product you can safely take to pull toxins, mercury, heavy metals, and even glyphosate, out of your cells. We use it, and it WORKS. So if you want to start 2018 looking and feeling amazing, go to foodhealsnation.com/jing and save $5 a bottle when you buy three or more, for a total of $15 off! Makes a great gift for friends & family too!

 

Stay tuned because Jay and Joy will be back on the podcast in the New Year to share their strategies for your healthiest and most delicious year yet.

Food with Benefits

 

Being hailed as “Sex and the City for Food,” The Food Heals Podcast brings together experts in the field of nutrition, health and healing to teach you the best-kept natural secrets to being a hotter, healthier, happier YOU!

It’s almost Thanksgiving — an exciting time of year to be grateful for what you have. But it can also be a stressful time for many. The holidays can be full of triggers — family, food, grief — sparked by an uncle whose politics you deplore, being tempted by unhealthy dishes, or the memory of lost loved ones who used to share the holidays with you.

 

These gatherings can be so emotionally charged that they can destroy your health goals —raising your stress level and leading you to having that third helping of pecan pie. You’re not alone. Today, we’re deep-diving into the emotional triggers the holidays can bring up with special guest, Sophie Uliano, to help you have a happy, healthy Thanksgiving. After all, this is the time for gratitude, togetherness, and love. Listen now!

 

Sophie Uliano’s Tips for a Healthy Happy Thanksgiving

Sophie’s mission is to help you feel amazing in your own skin and be excited about who you are. We are delighted our Gorgeously Green girlfriend shared some of her favorite Thanksgiving tips to help keep your vibration high this holiday season:

 

  • Be prepared on every front. If you’re going into a difficult family situation, spend a few days getting ready. Anticipate what might happen and decide how you will react. Journaling is extremely helpful to begin the process of letting go of those feelings.
  • If you’re going away for a few days, pack some healthy treats to take with you (granola, healthy smoothie mix, nuts, almond milk, etc.).
  • Remember what the holidays are about: It’s about love and spending time with people you care about and being grateful for the good in your life.

 

Underneath the triggers, stress, and possible arguments, we’re all one. We are human beings and we all want to be loved. So let’s give some love and gratitude during the holidays! Stay tuned because Sophie will be back for our New Year special episode to talk about how you can detox your home with organic and natural products.
