You’re bloated, excessively tired and have had enough fudge and cookies to stock the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory. It sounds like you’re thoroughly enjoying the holiday season – and that’s what it’s all about it! So instead of feeling guilty for the gluttony, get to work undoing the damage. Read more →
Who cares about lemon poppy seed muffins when you can have a whole loaf? Even better, you don’t need a fancy bread machine or a countertop full of mixing bowls and measuring spoons. Throw all of the ingredients into one big bowl, mix thoroughly and let it bake to fluffy perfection. The zesty lemon and punch of protein means you’ll have breakfast for the week – if it lasts that long. Read more →
Food is everywhere during the holidays. If you’re like everyone else, you don’t want to miss out on the fun treats all around. To avoid overindulging, it’s a good idea to keep plenty of delicious and nutritious snacks on hand. That way, you’ll feel satisfied without suffering the sugar crash that sends you back to the platter for more cookies 20 minutes after the first splurge!
Q: I recently tried a new anti-aging serum and ended up with red, blotchy patches on my cheeks. Does this mean I’m allergic to it?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
If you’ve never experienced a reaction to a skincare product, consider yourself lucky. It happens to many of us. Irritated skin can be caused by a number of things, including medications, topical irritants, infections or immune system disorders. When an allergen is responsible for triggering an immune system response, you may suffer from something as minimal as a little itch or as severe as a full-blown allergic reaction. Yikes!
All of this holiday stress—and OK, the food I know I shouldn’t be eating—has done a number on my stomach. Normally just eating clean and doing yoga keeps my belly quiet, but I have less time for om now that I have to worry about pleasing everyone and their mom!
Fortunately, I saw on TV that lemongrass tea is supposed to be a good tummy tamer, and I am happy to report that drinking a cuppa’ seems to do the trick. Read more →
Baby, it’s cold outside! Bundle up and brew a mug of minty hot cocoa to keep your belly happy and hands toasty warm. Powdered packet mixes don’t compare to this delightful steamy drink, made with almond milk, rich cacao and a pinch of pure peppermint. Simmer on your stovetop until bubbly, and let the chocolate-mint bliss begin!
The soul must be nourished every day. Don’t seem so surprised. Just like the spirit of the holiday season, the soul thrives on hope and joyfulness. There’s hope for a happy and bright new year, while people around the world are filled with the joy of giving and receiving. Though this should be a completely selfless time, it’s ironically the best chance to revive your spirit. Show yourself some love this winter and your life will feel so much more full! Read more →
