5 Tools to Reset Your Diet After Holiday Eating + Meet My New BFF!

27 Dec

Whew. It’s been about a week since I last updated you and … I’ve missed you! I loved having some time to “unplug” and used the time to plan and recharge for 2013. This next year is totally going to blow the last one out of the water so get ready …

So are you ready to get back into your healthy routine after all that holiday eating? I so am! I took a break over the holidays and I’m really looking forward to feeling completely myself again. If you normally eat Paleo, you know exactly what I mean. When you eat gluten, dairy or other not-so-good-for-you foods, your body gets really disoriented.

My body went through the shock of, “What the heck are you feeding me??” and then settled into, “I guess this is how we are eating again … ” soon followed by, “Can we go back to eating Paleo please?” The good news is that I don’t feel guilty from eating the way I did because I made up my mind before hand that this was a planned break. I am ready to get back into my groove and be even more passionate about cooking at home and working out. Here are 5 resources you can use to get back on track:

  1. 10 Tips to Get Back on Track after holiday eating
  2. Beat temptation with these: 5 Tips to Defeat the Cravings Monster
  3. Use these Meal Planning Ideas to jump-start your diet (plus there’s 43 healthy blog options for you to review!)
  4. And how about 10 Reasons to Eat Clean and Workout
  5. Oh and I strongly urge you to consider doing the Whole30 after the holidays are completely over. It will change your life.

This leads me to my two favorite Christmas gifts this year … (and my new BFF!)

A rosemary bush and a FOOD PROCESSOR. Ohmygosh I’m so excited!! I have been wanting a food processor for a while and Daniel and I started pricing them out but they were just SO expensive we couldn’t quite commit. Enter my mom. She totally surprised and blessed me with this AMAZING gift. I can do so much more with well, everything. You guys are going to reap the benefits too because I’m going to be sharing many more recipes.


What was your favorite Christmas gift?

Thanks for all the resources!! No foodie gifts this year, but I did get a shark steamer that I am super excited about. This is, apparently, being a grown up... lol

Same one that I have. LOVE it!!!! I got mine as an early Christmas gift around mid-November after breaking the little 4-cup processor I had at the time. Other than that, I got a new (shiny) red KitchenAide stand mixer from my mother. And my husband completely surprised me with a new 17-piece stainless steel Cuisnart cookware set.
