Alright ladies, let’s be honest for a second, the holidays are soooo sweet and delicious.
I, for one, come from a family that LOVES sugar (yes, capital letter LOVES!).
My husband jokes that we are the only family he knows who orders dessert after breakfast LOL… but, besides it being an on-going joke, it seriously took me a while to get a handle on my sugar addiction in my 20s when I was first learning all about women’s hormonal health and how I can balance my hormones –and hence, my period and fertility, emotions, brain function, skin and hair health etc– naturally.
And even now, when I have increased sugar for a few days in a row, like over Thanksgiving with my family, I begin to crave it like crazy.
All that to say, that I am also not a pleasure robber and get that throughout the holidays we’ll have some more sweets and other indulgent foods than we do throughout the rest of the year.
With that in mind, I do make sure that I keep my favorite detoxifying foods at hand… ya know, to minimize the damage where I can;)
Here is what you can find at my house right now if you were to come over to hang with me and my boys:
