Do the Holidays The Nutrient Rich Way: Happy Thanksgiving!

Do you find it difficult to eat healthy during the holidays? If so, you are not alone. Most people want to eat better, but they are simply swamped with great tasting foods served with love, that are unfortunately, often times poor in nutrients and in many cases junk.

They “give in” for good reasons and are forced to endure the holidays, starting with Thanksgiving and eventually start the New Year with yet another resolution to eat better, or go on a diet and deal with the uncomfortable reality of cleaning their body from all that junk.

There is Good news!

It doesn’t have to be that way.

The holidays don’t have to be synonymous with refined sugar, saturated fat and excess calories, especially now, when you can enjoy Nutrient Rich Holidays! Yes, Nutrient Rich Holidays filled with great tasting foods that are rich in the nutrients you and your family need to be both happy and healthy!

You do not have to give up your favorite foods to maintain a healthy diet during the holidays; what you want to do is eat Nutrient Rich versions of the foods you love!

There is a “nutrient rich” version of just about every food you are eating right now if you know how to shop, prepare, organize and eat out and eat  over the holidays.

Just this week, I was craving something chocolaty and I was surprised when I got an email from my friend by Rosie Battista, Healthy Living Coach,, which said said “go to your front door, there is a surprise”.

What I found to my delite was a bag, with a box of fudge brownies in it!

Now, as you can imagine, I don’t want to eat just any brownie, I want to eat a Nutrient Rich brownie when I’m going to eat brownies.

This fudge (It’s actually food that’s nutrient rich) was made and shared with LOVE .

  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup coconut butter
  • 5 tbs raw cacao*
  • 5 tbs agave nectar
  • 2 tbs revitaphi*
  • 2 tbs maca*
  • 2 tbs cacao nibs*
  • 3 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 2 tbs goji berries*
  • ½ tbs cordyceps*

Warm up oil and butter. Add all ingredients to a large bowl, mix until fluffy and creamy

(I use a vitamix blender and just throw everything in together and pour into a cake pan) It’s as simple as mix and pour!  (Put in freezer for 3-5 minutes and cut the fudge into bite size pieces.  Store in freezer container.

***ENJOY and try not to eat it all in one sitting!!!!

This week, we have Thanksgiving. Good news again! It’s one of THE most nutrient rich holidays we have; what, with all the focus on vegetables and fruits… You will overeat, no doubt. Technically we’re overeating most of the time when we eat nutrient rich foods every day, so have no illusion you’ll likely do so on Thanksgiving. – Enjoy it!
