This Holiday season it's so important to eat the right combination of things. Why? Our digestive system breaks down food best according to a mixing protocol. This means meats with greens, starches with greens, starches with meats are to be avoided, fats with meats are a no-no. Our stomach secretes a combo of enzymes to break down food. Certain mixes are more problematic than others, causing upset stomach or disruption of the daily flow. If you are munching down a typical holiday feast, it is an excellent idea to toss in some super foods, "facilitate" the "flow". If you are going to eat that carmelized pecan pie, those creamy and wet mashed potatoes, that succulent turkey or tofurkey, there is a smart way to do it with least amount of distress for your tummy and emotional stress levels.
As Ashley Koff, RD to the stars points out in this interview, the right levels of certain items, such as Cacao Nibs, which are chock-full of magnesium, will soothe that holiday stress, help your metabolism work efficiently, help you sleep and make you feel GOOD. You can mix our cacao with some of our Goldenberries or Goji Berries for a yummy good for you supplement of sorts! You can eat and feel good at the holiday table this season and all seasons to come!
