Holiday Recipe Recap

I hope you're still enjoying lots of memory making downtime.
 I love the way this time of year forces us all to take a pause and BE STILL.
Or at least be more mindful of doing that even if the tasks start to take over. It's tough to find this perfect balance between trying to meet the expectations that come this time of year and that deep urge to just stay in your oneZ all day long with a warm mug, Hallmark movies and knitting needles {anyone with me on that?}
This was the first year it was just our little family of 4 for Christmas. I love just being at home with these guys without a list of to-dos and letting it unfold. 
Well - that's not totally truthful -  I did have a list for food prep so I found a great way to keep the girls busy while I got busy in the kitch.
132 decorated gingerbread cookies later....
This gingerbread cookie totally rocked!  

A fun change this year was using my doterra essential oils in the recipes {#upleveling}
Just one drop made such a flavour difference - I haven't used them too much this year in recipes but will be doing a lot more experimenting with them now!

I would also like to note that I didn't begin any prep until 130pm on Christmas Day and had everything in steamers, crockpots and the oven by 230p. The kids started cutting their cookies, baked + decorated the whole time I was prepping. And then we were able to get back to relaxo mode by 230pm. It's also great to do some of the sides the day before {I did this for desserts and set the the table} - but I just utilized my little appliances to multitask the day of.
Here's what I made this year - everything turned out great!

H O L : F I T's   H E A L T H Y   H O L I D A Y   R E C I P E S:

Berry Banana Oat + Quinoa Bake {Christmas morning}
Slow Roasted Whole Chicken {with leftovers for soup + sandwiches next few days}

I actually love a meal like this on Sunday nights and as you know - I'm a big cheerleader for you taking Sunday afternoons as your meal prep day. Give these recipes a try next weekend - they don't take a lot of time and can be cooking while you wash + chop healthy produce for the week. 
Let me know if you try them!

PS - I've got this awesome boxing day deal on today if you've been thinking about approaching your total wellness in a more natural way! Msg me at heyholfit@gmail.com to get hooked up


Peace + Love,

Hol:Fit Holiday Blitz Giveaway Day 14 {my fave supplement trio}

I can't believe today is the final day of the giveaway blitz!! I've loved seeing all your comments + engagement and it makes me happy to be able to share these awesome oils + products!
I thought it would be nice to end by giving away what is actually doTERRA's #1 product...the Life Long Vitality System

The Lifelong Vitality Pack {LLV} is a combination of 3 supplement blends - each designed to serve a different function and complement each other to promote a health response in the body.

 Microplex VMz is a natural food derived multi-vitamin providing a good baseline of the essential vitamins + minerals that the body can absorb and utilize.

★ xEO Mega Complex provides various land + marine fats including EPA and DHA. It also has  an infusion of 9 essential oils such as clove, frankincense, thyme, cumin and ginger. Also available as just a plant based source.

★ Alpha CRS+ consists of herbs + extracts that support healthy cell proliferation + energy, reduce oxidative stress, healthy cellular immune function + mental clarity.

Being that I am very diligent with my nutrient intake through whole foods and am very active - I can say that I felt pretty great before trying these about 4 months ago. I started taking them at just 1/2 the dose and continue to do so because I noticed a few positive affects in my body with them and don't feel the need to increase to the full dose.

With whatever approach you take in your healthcare...always remember that it's your body that heals itself. Provide it the right tools without a negative side effect and you've got yourself on the path to optimal!

Here's my personal experience:

Consistent high energy + mental sharpness all day long. I'm very ambitious and take a lot on and in the past - I would just push through to get her done. I now feel like my body is humming along to the demands being an entrepreneur + mama bring

✓ My elimination became more consistently a #4 on the bristol stool chart

✓  I feel better supported in my goal of getting younger as I get older ;)

✓ I have not been sick since October 2013. I started integrating more essential oils into my personal routine and with the kids in Jan 2014. I started using this supplement system in March of this year and whenever I feel a little run down - I bump up my dose to full dose for a couple days. And for those mamas wondering  - my kids have both only had sniffles here and there since Jan 2014. Not one full blown cold since I have started using oils more in our house. I also give them 1 of the A --> Z chewables and 1 tsp of the IQ Mega fish oil in their daily smoothies. The only other thing they take daily is a Vit D3 + K2 drop and HMF Genestra probiotic at the change of a season. {I share this only because this is what I am doing currently and it is working so well. Please consult your naturopath about a protocol for you and your family}

Hol:Fit Holiday Blitz Giveaway Day 13 {my fave skincare system cont'd}

I mentioned my personal skin care approach yesterday during the Reveal giveaway... and some of you may have felt I was tormenting you by talking about the Verage Skin Care system. Well guess what - today I'm giving this system away too!!
I am pretty sure I will never use another system for the rest of my life. 
Here's why:
❤ Advanced plant technology promotes optimal lipid balance {many of us just strip our skin every day through chemicals + harsh abrasives}

❤ Uses only natural ingredients, nourishing plant extracts and a collection of some of the most potent + pure essential oils such as Helichryssum, Frankincense, Rose, Lavender, Myrhh, Sandalwood, Geranium, Jasmine, Juniper Berry, Ylang Ylang, Coriander, Basil, Melaleuca, Wild Orange + Cypress. These are the most beautifying of the essential oil world!

❤ The 4 step system includes a cleanser, spray toner, serum + moisturizer {click each to read the PDF} Doing this ritual at the end of day helps cue my wind down and has helped me increase my own self care after taking care of everyone else all day.
It retails for $120us and is $90us at wholesale. This system lasts me a little more than 2 months because I use it at night and then I use the oil cleansing method in the morning.

If you're not convinced yet that it's time to make the switch to more natural products {or DIY}, watch this 15 min vid below:



I love the work the EWG is doing to help us as consumers make more informed decisions. You can look up the toxicity rating of your beauty + skin care products in their database here

The Verage system rates super clean when you look at each ingredient in the EWG's database.
