It’s officially Week 1 of A Gluten-Free Holiday! This week, we’re sharing tips, recipes, and ideas on how to stay healthy through the hectic and sometimes stressful holiday season. Over at Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free, Amy is giving away two copies of her new cookbook, Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free. She also has some amazing tips for healthier eating throughout the holidays.
My main focus this holiday season to stay healthy? I am planning my indulgences. My still-sensitive digestive system (much less my waistline) can’t handle two months of free-for-all indulgences in sweets, starches, and heavy, carbohydrate-laden foods. Will I abstain completely from these things? Of course not – it is the holidays, after all. However, I will pick and choose mindfully when I wish to enjoy a treat (it will still be gluten and dairy-free regardless), and will make a point to sit down and truly enjoy that treat. The rest of the time, I plan to stick with meal planning as much as possible, so I can ensure I keep up my intake of green veggies and nourishing foods.
I have a number of other healthy tips for the holiday season here.
