HOW TO FEAST SAFELY THIS CHRISTMAS: OVEREATING VS. EATING WELL

A table feast of food with people around

Introduction

Welcome to the most wonderful and enchanting time of the year - a season wrapped in merriments, endless laughter and of course, feasting on food. 


As we immerse ourselves in the festivities, let’s take a moment to ponder on a stat that might resonate with many:

 

According to a survey by the National Eating Disorders Association, it reveals a whopping 78% of people gain weight over the holidays with the average person consuming an extra 2,000 to 3,000 calories during a typical holiday meal. 

 

Well, fear not because we at Herbs of the Earth - your trusted health and wellness partner aim to help you rewrite the narrative by embracing what we’ve tagged “Feasting Safely.”  


It’s time to unveil the secrets to navigating your banquet table without compromising our well-being. 


In this beautiful season, we are raising the campaign to shift our focus to the art of mindful indulgence where we embrace the joy of feasting without the need for a post-celebration food coma. It’s about striking the balance between savouring every delectable bite and honouring our bodies with the care they deserve. 


Today, we’ll equip you with the tools as we delve into three key aspects of “Feasting Safely”:

1. Preparation: 

2. Digestion

3. Expulsion


Let our feasting begin!

1. Preparation: Priming Your Digestive System 

Let's face it, our digestive systems aren't built for marathon feasting sessions.


Just like pre-season training helps athletes thrive, prepping your gut for the holiday food marathon can make a world of difference.


Here are some practical tips:


  1. H2O - Your Digestive System's Best Friend

Think of water as the oil in your digestion engine not just for feasting safely this Christmas.


Staying hydrated, especially before and during heavy meals, keeps things flowing smoothly, preventing that sluggish, bloated feeling.


Tip: Aim for a tall glass with each meal and sip throughout the day to keep your internal plumbing happy.



  1. Prebiotics: 

Imagine prebiotics as tiny gardeners, nurturing the good bacteria in your gut. These dietary fibers found in foods like garlic, onion, and bananas, feed your gut flora turning them into digestive powerhouses. 


This boost in good bacteria helps break down food efficiently, reducing discomfort and maximizing nutrient absorption. 


Do you want a convenient way to give your gut some prebiotic love? 


Herbs of the Earth’s PrePro-60Billions offer a potent blend of 60 billion colony-forming units (CFUs) of friendly bacteria alongside their essential prebiotic fuel.


These capsules are a simple and effective way to prime your digestive system for the festive feast ahead.

Remember, preparing your gut isn't just about avoiding discomfort; it's about setting yourself up for optimal nutrient absorption and overall well-being. 


Think of it as an investment in your digestive health, allowing you to savour the season's delights without the gut-wrenching consequences.


By simply staying hydrated and incorporating Herbs of the Earth's prebiotics, you'll be giving your digestive system a head start in handling the culinary marathon ahead.

2. Digestion: Aiding Your Body’s Processing Power

As we embark on the festive feast, it’s pivotal to understand the delicate importance of digestion - the body’s remarkable process of breaking down food for nourishment. 


However, the holiday exuberance can sometimes overwhelm this natural flow. 

 

Tip: Allow your digestive system time and space to process each meal course.  

 

To aid optimal digestive process and care, here are Herbs of the Earth recommendations to lend a helping hand to our digestive organs:


1. Enzymes Digestive Care: This comprehensive formula packs a powerful blend of enzymes specifically tailored to aid digestion.


With 650mg of quadruple-strength Pancreatin, and other digestive powerhouses, it helps break down food, reducing discomfort and maximizing nutrient absorption.


Simply pop a capsule before or during meals, and let your digestive organs run smoothly.

2. Blood Sugar Support: Herbs of the Earth's Blood Sugar Support formula can also lend a hand during festive feasting.


Packed with ingredients like bitter lemon, banaba leaf, cinnamon bark and other ingredients, it helps regulate blood sugar levels, a crucial aspect of digestive well-being. 


By preventing blood sugar spikes and crashes, you can avoid fatigue, cravings, and even stomach distress after those rich holiday meals.

With the help of digestive enzymes and smart choices like Blood Sugar Support, you can turn your festive meals into nourishing celebrations for both your taste buds and your well-being.

Expulsion: Gentle Detoxification 

Eliminating waste efficiently becomes crucial to avoid lingering discomfort and sluggishness. 


This is where the final stage of "Feasting Safely" comes in - gentle detoxification.


Think of your liver as the master detoxifier, processing and eliminating waste products from your body. After the holiday culinary marathon, it needs a little extra support. 


Here's how Herbs of the Earth helps:


  • Herbs of the Earth's 15-Day Cleanse: This powerful blend of gentle herbs and fibres helps cleanse your colon and support healthy digestion. It encourages the natural elimination of waste, leaving you feeling lighter and revitalized.

Additional Simple Habits for Gentle Detox:


  • Hydration: Water is your best friend, even after the feasting. Keep those fluids flowing to help flush out toxins and keep things moving smoothly.


  • Gentle Movement: A brisk walk or some light yoga can get your digestive system back on track after a period of indulgence.


  • Mindful Eating: While holiday treats are tempting, don't pile your plate again too soon. Listen to your body's cues and eat mindfully, enjoying smaller portions of healthy foods to nourish your post-feast recovery.


Remember, gentle detoxification isn't about punishment, it's about supporting your body's natural cleaning processes and setting yourself up for a fresh and energetic start to the new year.

 

With small, mindful steps and the help of natural aids like Herbs of the Earth's detox-friendly products, you can say goodbye to post-feast sluggishness and embrace the joy of a well-balanced holiday season.


Conclusion

In summary, the holidays are a time for celebration, connection, and, of course, delicious food. But amidst the joyful chaos, it's easy to neglect our well-being, leading to post-feast discomfort and sluggishness. 


By embracing the principles of "Feasting Safely", we can rewrite our narrative and enjoy the season's bounty without sacrificing our health.


You can savour every bite without the digestive consequences by making small, mindful choices and incorporating Herbs of the Earth’s helpful wellness companions.
