Don’t let Thanksgiving Derail Your Health

Thanksgiving is practically here. And this year, we’re all planning on sitting around the table with our loved ones again. We can help you kick off the holidays and guide you to a healthier Thanksgiving! Meet some of our very own Dunn Pellier Media clients.

Get ready for game day: Eat a healthy breakfast.

Get ready to fast – intermittent fast to better health. Start “break-fast” with a tall glass of water, followed by some kind of herbal tea or hot water with lemon. If you can, follow that with green juice.

To have a healthy breakfast we recommend some kind of greens and eggs. We suggest some scrambled eggs and arugula with some extra virgin olive oil. What this does is hydrate and alkalize your body and begin to neutralize the acidic foods you’re about to ingest.

For amazing breakfast recipe ideas, check out Dr. Mindy Pelz. She’s also got some amazing holiday recipes as well, and be sure to check out her holiday gift guide complete with deep discounts so you can save on her healthy picks!

Stay hydrated. 

While you sleep you build up toxins.  We suggest that you begin your day with water and herbal teas to help flush out those toxins.  To stay hydrated throughout the day, keep water nearby. You might think you are hungry, but actually are dehydrated and need water. Drink plenty of water after breakfast and right up until you begin feasting on any holiday fare.

Amp up your digestion with Power Life. 

There is no way around it: if you’re going to indulge in all the treats this holiday has to offer, set yourself up for success.  You can arm your digestive system with some pre and probiotics from our client, Tony Horton, creator of Power Life. His favorite product, Foundation Four is a formula that combines the nutritional powerhouses of green vegetables, magnesium, and pre and probiotics into one convenient powder.

It contains 2 daily servings of organic vegetables.  One of them is acacia fiber that helps with gas and bloating.  Did you know that eating too much Thanksgiving food can cause gas and bloat?  You won’t eat as much by amping up your digestion beforehand by adding in Foundation Four.

Order the best most sustainable vegetables for your holiday meal. 

If you want some of the best-sourced vegetables in all of the USA that is ranked the highest in nutrients, meet Farmer Lee Jones.  All of the vegetables grown on his farm are free of pesticides and sustainably grown. Order your Farmer Jones Farm Thanksgiving box today with vegetables to serve 4-6 people.

Have a pre and post-workout game plan. 

The holidays would not be complete without a game plan to work off those extra holiday calories. Think about exercise first.

If you don’t already have a go-to workout or if you’re looking to try something new, try Les Mills, or Bulldog Yoga. These virtual fitness apps contain workouts you can do anywhere, anytime. 

There you have it, a simple game plan to help keep you healthy and on track during the holidays.  From our Thanksgiving table to yours, we wish you and your family a wonderful, healthy, and happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy!

Dr. Mindy Pelz shares some fun recipes and ideas for healthier swaps this Halloween!

5 healthier alternatives to Halloween candy:

Organic LMNT Gummies

You can make LMNT flavored gummies using different silicon trays that are in the shapes of spiders and worms!

Instructions: Mix a packet of LMNT with 1/2 cup of water and 1.5 tablespoons of Gelatin. Mix together, bring to a boil, pour into trays, and let sit in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours!

Fruit Leather

You can find organic, natural, fruit leather that comes in a variety of flavors at your local health store or on Thrive Market!

Honey Sticks

The local farmer’s market almost always has the honey stand and they normally have honey sticks!  If you can find them local to your area, that would be best!

Chocolate Covered Dates

This is one of our all-time favorite snacks!  I like to take pitted dates, place them into a silicone ice cube tray, and cover them with melted Lily’s milk chocolate.  One tip when making – sprinkle sea salt on top, and then place the dates in the freezer for an hour.

Lily’s Peanut Butter Cups

Lily’s makes a delicious peanut butter cup that is organic and low sugar.  We like to order in bulk through Thrive Market for our office, and this is a great alternative to the Reese’s Peanut Buttercup.

Dr. Mindy has a ton of other recipes on her website that you can dig through to find some creative things to give to your kids this Halloween!
