Happy almost holidays! We’re finally creeping into fall and the holidays are around the corner, Starting with Halloween. I’m already starting to see spooky decorations all over Chelsea brownstones and apartment lobbies!
So many of our clients -even people who generally try to eat a really healthy and balanced diet- are a total sucker for candy. Obviously candy is typically loaded with sugar, chemicals, preserves, coloring, and anything and everything else you’d have to be a scientist to try to understand.
What’s really important to you and your well-being going into this season? What does your perfect season look like for your mind and body? If you could picture your perfect scenarios, what would that look like?
Chowing down on candy in your office or kid’s stash at home won’t leave you feeling your best. We all know that the mass candy collection slowly dwindles until Thanksgiving arrives to welcome the next chapter of regrets. Next thing you know, you’re looking forward to an entire season of digestive pain and weight gain to remind you of what you wish you hadn’t been up to.
Don’t let this year look like your past. That’s an old, tired story. Start this one with a clean slate! I always find with myself and my clients that jump starting with a colonic (before things get really bad) keeps you on your game. You feel light and clean and ready to keep it that way! Pack some organic dark chocolate for the office in case you find the candy jar a little too tempting. Dive into your own stash of fresh fruit, juicy dates, raw desserts, sweet potatoes and squashes, and dark chocolate will satisfy your sweet tooth. And hey! Maybe it’ll inspire your friends and fam to feel supported and motivated to do the same. It never hurts to have a buddy on this journey with you to hold each other accountable and cheer each other on.
Lately, my husband and I have been making juices and smoothies together most mornings and stewing coconut veggie curries most nights. I love to whip up some raw fudgy dessert by throwing dates, cacao, almond butter, shredded coconut and sea salt in the food processor or blender.
Make a plan for yourself and stick to it. You deserve it! Get your butt in for a colonic and then off to the store to create your perfect Halloween survival kit!
