Last week in my membership club, Nourished 365, I held a Coaching Call to help my members cope with the mindset around food at Christmas.
We hopped on a Zoom call (which I was using well before Covid hit, might I tell you!), and had a cosy chat about common concerns with Christmas.
I know it should be the ‘most wonderful time of the year’ and all that (and I do love Christmas), but I also know we can really struggle with giving ourselves permission to relax and enjoy ourselves around food.
When trying to move away from the dieting mentality of restriction, Christmas can be a real time of anxiety. Where we don’t trust ourselves to be in control around all the incredible delights that are absolutely everywhere!
I help women get to a place where they can be in control of their cravings. To be able to find joy around savouring favourite foods (including shop-bought chocolates), rather than just guzzling down everything in sight, and having to cope with feelings of guilt and shame.
It’s not easy, and it takes time and patience. While I can’t just click my fingers and make it happen for you, I can share incredible recipes that are going to help you enjoy your Christmas without so much of the guilt.
I’ve put together a bumper bundle of Nourished 365 recipes called Festive & Fabulous which you can purchase now! This bundle is bursting with brilliant recipes perfect for Christmas. Not only are they full of flavour and colour, but they are also brimming with wholesome ingredients that aren’t going to lead you to devour a whole box of Ferrero Rocher before Kevin’s even been left Home Alone!
Speaking of Ferrero Rocher, I was live on my Facebook page earlier today, cooking up a culinary chocolate storm in my kitchen. Check out the replay above where I made the Hazelnut Cocoa Bites (totally reminiscent of a Ferrero Rocher – yes, seriously!) and Chocolate Crunch Bars! They are both totally yummy and are going to help satisfy your sweet tooth without leaving you stuffed and sad.
These are just 2 of the 35 fabulous recipes in the eBook that’s available to buy now here: https://www.laurengayfer.com/festive-ebook
