I hope that you have had a SUPERB holiday weekend, filled with many hugs and lively foods! This week, we are celebrating getting back to the BASICS of healthy eating as we progress through the holidays. Instead of focusing on holiday weight and feeling victim to the social events with heavy food & eating, take charge of your life! Be different and challenge yourself to join the thousands of co-operators who are focusing on preparing the items from their boxes each week rather than from making other trips to the stores or take-outs. You CAN do this, and you will feel AMAZING when you do! There are 5 ways to EASILY empower healthy habits this holiday. It’s as easy as:
3) Making Exciting New Recipes to Share with Your Friends/Family
5) Entertaining Yourself from Those on the Same Path.
I know that staying healthy throughout the holidays is not only a physical challenge for many, but also it is a mental challenge. Society focuses on marketing and selling their “products” that sometimes may claim to be foods; however, these items are simply not fresh foods if food at all. Because our society tends to socialize around eating events, specifically holiday dishes, people succumb to gatherings where they feel cornered or “guilted” into participating in consuming these foods. Just because you do not participate in holiday eating does not mean you are not celebrating the holidays. You are celebrating YOURSELF by honoring your body in making healthy choices! You WILL feel EMPOWERED after you cross this threshold!
My goal for this holiday season is to truly inspire ALL of our Rawfully Organic Co-operators to make their own food choices and to provide them with the options to not only eat an abundance of colorful produce, but also to inspire them to inspire others by living vibrantly! The greatest change that we can create in this world is the change that we create within ourselves.
I wish that I could bare my heart even more and express my true desire to REACH people with this message. The holidays are to be filled with LIGHT, LOVE, CELEBRATION, and PEACE…not loneliness, self-deprivation, or lack of confidence. I want to be here as a light along the way because living rawfully organic comes so easily to me. This is my gift that I want to share with all of you this season. Please allow me to do so!
This week, we are back to our usual co-op schedule, and I hope to see all of you there, challenging yourselves to make this holiday a GREEN one and prepare from your boxes! I will also be teaching my second class at Sur la Table on Wednesday for Juices and Smoothies to give people ideas on how to make it through the holidays using their boxes and staying raw. There are less than 10 spaces left! Here is a sneak peak video from my last class for you to see! For more info, you can sign up with the link or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I love you all SO much, and I send many, many hugs!
