Tips for Over Indulgences in the Festive Season!
The holidays are officially here, and with that comes a multitude of festivities and fun. But the holiday season is also known for having its fair share of indulgences (more often overindulgences!), from rich foods to alcoholic beverages to too many late nights. So, how do you stay healthy and prevent overeating?
Here’s the thing: It’s all about balance. I like to practice the 80/20 rule, especially during the holidays. That means that 80% of the time, you’ll be eating the things you know are good for you and spending the other 20% of the time having fun and indulging.
But what if you tip over that 20%? What overindulgence will destroy you?
Well – whatever it might be, when you are feeling overfull and struggling to digest, here’s what you can do!
Drink Apple Cider Vinegar
Have Ginger On Hand
Pass the Brussels Sprouts
If you’ve never been keen on this underrated vegetable – try roasting them with balsamic vinegar! You might change your mind….
Use Charcoal After a Long Night Out…
Christmas and New Year for most people will always include alcohol! I am not a big drinker – (it really doesn’t agree with me at all) but I know how easy it can be when you are having fun to have that extra glass of wine or finish the night with a brandy…
But the next day you can feel washed out and good for nothing, with a sore head and a bad belly!
This is where charcoal comes in! It is a great toxin remover – and it can sober you pretty fast! One option is to take 2 or 3 capsules of activated charcoal after your big night out… take them with lots of water (as they can make you constipated!) and they should soak up some of the alcohol and maybe you won’t feel so bad the following day!
