It’s that time of year again. Getting together with friends and family during the holidays can be the highlight of the year. The lowlight? Getting sick afterwards.
Few challenges create more anxiety for the in-home chef than the idea of cooking the holiday meal. This meal can place two foundational hurdles to overcome for the cook.
Monday may be the worst day of the week for Halloween to fall on, but these tips will help you make weeknight trick or treating a huge success!
Everyone has had a Thanksgiving meal that didn’t turn out the way you wanted. Maybe you tried to defrost the turkey that morning? Or started the turkey too late and pulled it too early so it’s under cooked? The issue probably wasn’t that you don’t know how to cook it’s that you don’t know how to plan and manage your time! All great chefs rely on lists and timelines to execute large dinner parties and you should too.
Inviting over a group of guests always sounds like fun. Feeding a big group can send even a calm cook into panic mode. “Stress levels naturally run a bit higher when you’re having a party! Planning is the key to alleviating a lot of anxiety, and if you have a great time, your guests will, too.
I’m sure everyone is used to starting off the new year with a specific diet to try and lose weight. This will maybe go on for a month or two before we get tired of it and lose our “beginning of the year” motivation. As a chef of Whole Health Everyday, I want people to focus more on long term wellness of their body and not just a diet that will make them lose weight fast, but then gain it back once they get tired of the diet they are on. Instead of making a plan to follow a fad diet that is very restrictive, this New Year, make a resolution to break the dieting cycle. Create a nourishing, sustainable, eating pattern that works for you that will be reasonable to stick with long-term. This way, you could stick with this eating habit on vacations, during the holidays, and at any party or event.
No matter what your holidays look like this year, they're probably still stressful and stress has extremely negative effects on your health. Now's a great time to try something different and what could be more fun than goat yoga?
