Nov 15, 2017 | GAPS, Recipes, Snacks + Treats, Weight Loss


I love the festive season. Like seriously love it. Baby Jesus, chocolate yule logs, log fires and feasting. I am SUCH a fan of feasting! And I am pretty unashamed of talking about it this early. If like me you are hosting 15+ folk for Christmas dinner then you will know the planning starts NOW đŸ˜‰


And while most people around this time fo year of telling you to focus on drinking more green juice, or upping exercise or eating less to ‘compensate’ for excess calories – I don’t.
I have a simple philosophy for this time of year …and for whole year to be honest, and that is…


Get wise – not deprived.


When it comes to festive snacks don’t waste time on nutritionally useless food – aim for yummy food that will do you good.


The trick to THRIVING your way through the festive season is not counting calories or running a 10k every day (really not great for your joints!) – it’s simply to swap in traditional sugar fuel recipes with more naturally sweet ones


That is why I created the Eat & Be Merry Recipe eBook – full of sweet and savoury treat recipes to ensure you truly nourish yourself this Christmas without feeling deprived and without gaining that traditional 9lbs…


This book focuses on the fabulous fat burning four that I talk about at the Flourish Academy:

  • Fat
  • Veggies
  • Fibre
  • Protein

(Plus they contain no sugar, gluten or dairy or even grains – making it Paleo friendly!)


Research shows that these 4 will reduce your hunger, help keep you fuller for longer which will stop mindless snacking and help stabilise your energy.
