Getting Healthy After The Holidays

vanessa evigan

The holidays are here and that means overloading on food, at least that's how we do it around here. Thanksgiving is basically an all day eating fest with so much unhealthy food and then everyone just lays around in a food coma the rest of the day and into the night and then we eat again. I like to give my body a little prep a day or two before and eat super light and healthy so I don't feel as bad about myself. Taking lots of walks and trying to get back into meditation is top of my list along with eating better. Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone we have a little time before the next round of holiday fun.


After Thanksgiving I try and do a week of really healthy eating where I supplement a meal or two with a super healthy smoothie that is packed with nutrients. Then I do it all over again for Christmas and New Year. I'm trying to have a smoothie every other morning to add some hidden nutrients in like spinach before I start my day. Here are some of my favorite smoothie recipes. Some are great detox recipes and others are a perfect meal supplement.

I have been trying different protein mixes and found 310 Nutrition and have been really enjoying the vanilla flavor. I mix it in a lot of my smoothies for protein and vitamins! Use my code "310flow" at checkout for free shipping.
