Enjoy Your Favorite Holiday Foods Without Hurting Your Gut or Goals.

By: Coach Sammie

Ok folks… I know Halloween isn’t even here yet, but lets face it, you’ve probably already started planning your Thanksgiving/Christmas family parties, been invited to a Friendsgiving gathering, or reluctantly had to decide what to bring to your holiday work potluck next month. Am I wrong? Didn’t think so…..

Alritey then… since the madness is already starting, lets see what we can do to help make sure you don’t totally throw your healthy nutritional habits out the window completely this holiday season shall we?!

I’ve learned through several years of helping people with nutrition that our bellies are just as diverse as your personalities. Within the walls of Reviver we have numerous members who are restricted to or even prefer specific styles of eating. The awesome part of this is that today, there are SOOO many more options to create healthy nutrition habits that fit your specific needs/wants. So if you are someone who (because of either gut concerns, food sensitivities, personal beliefs, or health goals) should be consuming certain foods (and staying away from others)… guess what?… there is a way to make it through the many holiday events your going to and still fill your belly with gut and goal friendly foods. There are gluten free, dairy free, meat free, nut free, soy free, sugar free, hocus pocus free meals for just about everything. 

Here are some yummy options that caught my eye and I wanted to share with you, enjoy :)

2. Cheesy Bacon Butternut Squash (gluten free, vegetarian)

3. Cauliflower Stuffing (vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free)
