Lisa’s Holiday Health Tips

December 2017 - Health & Wellness

Holidays are in full swing!

“Take extra care during the stressful holidays,” advises Lisa.

“We don’t sleep enough, drink too much, and eat a lot of sugar and fat, which lead to gut bacteria imbalances and immune systems depletion. We get sick—usually after the holidays—when that stress catches up with us.”

Here are a few extra tips to keep you strong:

Choose wisely

Choose this instead of this
fresh and home-cooked processed and packaged
salsa or hummus sour cream dips
raw nuts or dried fruit chips
mandarin oranges or pomegranates fruitcake or cookies
tea, apple cider, or Americano hot chocolate or flavoured coffees
sushi samosas
raw veggies cheese
almonds chocolate
spice salt


Arrive satisfied

If you know you’re going to a party, eat a high protein/high fibre snack to fend off munching madly.

Sip sensibly

  • For every alcoholic or sugary drink, drink an 8 oz glass of water.
  • Jazz it up with a squeeze of lemon or lime, crushed fresh mint, or colourful cranberries.
  • As often as possible, go to bed early.
