The holidays are upon us, and if you’re anything like me you’ve got one major topic on your mind…holiday recipes!
There’s no denying food is a major part of this season, but unfortunately for many it can also be a source of stress, especially when it comes to indulging in recipes that taste amazing but leave you feeling not so great. And when we don’t feel great, it can be hard to show up as our best selves and truly enjoy life.
This is why I’m always on such a hot mission to create recipes that taste good and help you feel good too. Because both food and your body are meant to be enjoyed, loved on and celebrated, and there’s no reason you should be able to do one and not the other.
So for those of you that tend to struggle in the food arena around the holiday season, I got you covered with this year’s 2020 Hormone Healthy Holiday Recipe Roundup.
I hope this list brings you a sense of calm, peace and joy around food this season, for you, your hormones and your loved ones.
PS — Don’t miss the new recipe for my Hormone-Healthy Peppermint Hot Cocoa below!
In a small stovetop pot heat 1 tbsp coconut oil ad 2 squares high quality dark chocolate (I love Hu Kitchen) until melted.
Stir in 1 tbsp navitas organics cacao and reishi mushroom powder (can sub for regular cacao) and a pinch of sea salt.
Stir in 12 ounces (about 1 1/2 cups) nut milk of choice and add 1-2 dates (pitted + chopped) or 1 -2 tbsp maple syrup to sweeten.
Heat over medium heat, 2-3 minutes, until steaming (do not boil, it will mess with the texture of the milk).
Remove from heat, add in 1 drop pure peppermint essential oil or 1-2 drops peppermint extract as well as optional collagen powder and pour mixture into your blender, pulsing for 10 seconds until frothy and creamy. ⠀
