Do you struggle to honor the true meaning of the holidays because stress overcomes you!? Time to focus on things like connection, celebration, appreciation, and reflection? It’s easy to get caught up in what needs to happen for you to stay in a rhythm of self-care with all the travel plans, unscheduled eating opportunities, and perhaps family dynamics creating stress. What if you knew ways to help your body and mind cope with the potential stressors?

Here’s your holiday survival kit:
This year, start your Thanksgiving day off with a breakfast that has plenty of fat, such as goat cheese and spinach scrambled eggs cooked in generous amounts of either ghee or my favorite, tea seed oil and serve with a side of avocado. The fat will provide your body with ample nutrients and stable energy, so that you’re not inclined to eat the entire Thanksgiving spread yourself.
