Healthy Holiday Guide for 2019
This year I’ve decided to share tips and products to help get you through the hustle and bustle of the holidays. It’s so easy to overeat, have sleepless nights, and get all stressed out during what should be the most precious time of year. But, many of us can’t relax until it’s over.
In my healthy guide here, you’ll find powders to make smoothies & soups, products keep your teeth healthy, shiny and bright, books on self-care, as well as a place online to buy your favorite healthy items, and more. Tips first, then healthy products to help.
10 Tips to Guide You Through the Holidays
- Keep your routine as best as you can.
- Moderation, moderation, moderation
- Be realistic; don’t think everything has got to be perfect
- Stay connected and don’t try to please everyone
- Go for a walk before eating and after eating
- Drink lots of water before the big meal
- Focus on this year, not last year, and not the future
- It’s undoubtedly okay to say no
- Bring your own food if you need to
- Don’t go back for seconds
Bubs Naturals is a small wellness company based in Encinitas, CA, producing Collagen Protein and MCT Oil powder made from nature’s highest quality ingredients. Their mission is – FEEL GREAT. DO GOOD. Their product stands apart from the rest as it is single-sourced, non-GMO, and NSF for Sport Certified.
Why is collagen good for you?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. After our early 20’s your collagen production declines every year.
- Support and reconstruction of the joints
- It supports gut health and muscle recovery.
- Promotes healthy skin, hair, and nail.
Bubs Naturals Collagen Protein promotes health and healing from the inside out and is completely flavorless so that you can mix it anything. It’s the highest quality for superior solubility.
What is MCT Oil?
Medium-chain triglyceride (MCT). Medium-length chains of fats called triglycerides extracted from sustainably sourced coconut oil. Carrier of Caprylic Acid, scientifically proven to convert into ketones.
BUBS MCT Oil Powder is 100% virgin coconut oil and delivers a power-packed punch of health benefits, each part contributing to total well-being. BUBS MCT is a fast-acting, clean energy source that quickly converts into ketones after ingestion, giving you instant energy. This healthy fat boosts mental clarity within minutes while reducing gut inflammation, promoting overall digestive health for the GI tract.
Bone Broth Protein Soup
Ancient Nutrition is on a mission to restore health, strength, vitality by producing its pioneering lines of Bone Broth Protein. I’ve had the pleasure of receiving their Bone Broth Protein Pure and Bone Broth Protein Turmeric. Today’s recipe (below) uses PURE.
One advice regarding my healthy holiday guide is to couple this soup and with a self-care book (see a couple below) and just relax.
What is bone broth?
Bone broth comes from simmering animal bones in water. Herbs and spices can be added in for a variety of flavors. Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth Protein™ begins as an actual bone broth liquid. Then it’s dehydrated, making it into a concentrated source of high-quality, nutritious, and tasty powder. A quality Bone Broth Protein™ powder comes with the same benefits of a homemade broth, but it’s even more versatile in so many recipes.
Bone Broth Protein Pure & Turmeric have no carbs nor any sugar and is gut-friendly, paleo-friendly, grain-free, nut-free, and gluten-free. This is a great alternative when you’ve eaten at every family members’ house for the holidays, wouldn’t you say?

Sounds too good to be good. Well, my son and I put it to the test, and it won hands down. We tried them both, and they were equally good. They had me at the dessert on the can.
