Healthy Eating for the Holidays

Eat your healthy meals before you snack...

Eat a good breakfast
- Try eggs scrambled with yesterdays left-over dinner vegetables, sprouted grain bread and a piece of fruit
- Soak 1/2 cup raw cashews in 1 cup good water the night before for 7 hours or longer. Blend to make cashew milk. Use 1/2 cup cashew milk with 1 or 2 cups of fruit and blend for a breakfast smoothie. Add more cashew milk if you need more liquid. Refrigerate unused cashew milk and make sure you use it up in 2 days.

Eat fruit, cut up veggies or nuts for between meal snacks. If you like food bars, choose those made with raw fruits and nuts. Watch out for the food additives. Especially avoid those with any soy or canola. For help deciphering what the additives on the label mean go to

Have a huge salad - piled high on a dinner plate - with at least 7 raw vegetables for lunch. Add sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, pinto beans or your favorite bean, a little chicken, turkey or other organic, free-range meat (not deli meat - it has nitrites). Season with Celtic Sea Salt. Dress with 1/4-1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil and 1-3 tsp raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar. Vegetarians just leave out the meat.

For dinner, have another huge salad. Then you can have a good protein source meat, poultry or beans and rice. You can also add a steamed vegetable and a starchy vegetable (if you're not having rice).

Try to eat 50% to 85% raw. Raw food has enzymes to help your body digest and utilize your food. Cooking destroys a lot of the enzymes and other nutrients.

Now for the goodies...

If you have to have chocolate, choose organic dark chocolate, NOT milk chocolate. Check the ingredients before you buy. For help deciphering what the additives on the label mean go to

For muffins, cookies, breads, go to for some healthy recipes

Always remember ...

Take care of your body. Eat right, exercise and keep your stress levels down. You only get one body. Treat it well and you'll feel better and enjoy life longer.
