How to Guiltlessly Indulge During the Holidays

I promise you, this post is not what you think it is. Read on if my devil’s advocacy has peaked your curiosity.

 
Do you ever really want to bring up a conversation, but have no idea where to start? Bingo! That’s about where I’m at. Every time I sign into Facebook or Instagram or whatever SM platform, I’m seeing this topic being covered forwards and backwards. Which then begs the question, what on earth can I add here that you haven’t heard that would ACTUALLY HELP you?

I even used to choose IT over pizza!

5 Healthy, Non-Toxic Gifts for You and Your Tribe

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you’re enjoying some QT with family, friends and a generous slice of pumpkin pie. I know I am 😉 

So, about this Black Friday/Cyber Monday business. I know that when this time of year comes through, it’s easy to reach for things like paraben filled perfumes and GMO-laden cookies to give as gifts. I get it. They’re easy, they’re cheap and they generally go over well. But I know, that deep down inside, you’re the kind of person that cares deeply about the friends of your family and friends. And you want more than anything to be giving them gifts that they’ll love but that will also be good for their waste-lines + keep their hormones toxin-free and happy.this year, you don’t have to. You don’t even have to reach for either of those two things. We’re giving you great, affordable alternatives right here.

This year, you don’t have to give the same old stuff everyone else always gives. This year I’m giving you great, affordable, and exciting alternatives right here.

Gluten-Free? Do These 3 Things to Survive & Enjoy the Holidays.

Gluten Free on Thanksgiving? 

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of all time. My family hosts a ginormous celebration. The morning of we all wake-up early, eat a big breakfast and pretty much fast until the evening feast (aside from the occasional secret finger-full of mashed potatoes). By the time lunch rolls around the kitchen smells like a combination of pineapple glazed turkey and pumpkin pie (my mouth is watering just thinking about it!).
