Here we go again! The Holiday Season is here- BRING IT. We have listed a few tips to get you through this Thanksgiving Holiday… it’s all about the sweat, party, and Friday cure- BEC has your back. Watch our Video HERE
1) MOVE. Wake up and do something. Whether it is going for a run, heading to your favorite yoga class, or check out our babes at Tone it Up for a quick video. Our little BEC’s in training love to do work out videos with adults. Make this move thing a family (or friends) event. Check the TIU girls below. I love these ideas… Warning ** they are on a beach. Don’t be mad. ok, I’m mad.
2) No one freak. HAVE FUN. Seriously, if you know any of the girls at BEC then you know we like to have a little (LOT) of fun. Did someone say party? EAT, DRINK, AND HAVE FUN. If you are heading to a feast and are afraid of what they may be serving you, bring your own dish! I love to bring a salad or green that I know I will fill my plate with and “side” all of the other choices. I do this because certain food gives me an equally painful hangover as drinking my kombucha-vodkas.<– (kombucha with a splash of vodka on ice)
BEC ideas from our favorite sites + favorite bloggers:
Dessert // No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie // OMG
Appetizer // Salad // Arugula, Fennel, Apple, Orange, and Pomegranate Salad // great uninvited dish. Can’t be mad at fall in a bowl. Who else will make this? NO ONE. = Hero Great example of what I would fill my plate with and side it with the butterball.
Main Steeze // Gluten-free Stuffing // Quinoa stuffing looks AH-mazing. I usually make a corn bread stuffing with apples, and local sausage. I use a family recipe and clean it up with whole, organic ingredients.
See something you like above but don’t want to go to the store? Let me help you out here… A great idea to distress the holiday preparation in our area (in Charlottesville, Lynchburg, Richmond and Northern VA area) is RELAYFOODS. Who the heck has time to run to the grocery with empty shelves to find nothing? You can order all of your ingredients and premade food on Relay until midnight on Tuesday and pick up in the Lynchburg area on Wednesday. They offer local and organic ingredients and also have local turkeys STILL available. True that.
3) FRIDAY MORNING ELIXER < AND // OR> CLEANSING SMOOTHIE< Ok, as I said, we get food AND drink hangovers. Here is what BEC recommends to save your mind, body, and soul the morning after! I usually suffer on Saturday morning due to the immense party sessions on Friday night with family and friends in town so use these tips through out the weekend (LIFE).
Happy Thanksgiving to all of our people! Have the best of time and stay tuned for our leftover ideas :)
