Don't Wing It During The Holidays!

There are three schools of thought when it comes to keeping up with your health commitments during the holidays:

1). Give yourself a break, and just enjoy a day or two of loosening up your health plans.
2). Wing it. Try to exercise willpower when resisting all of the goodies friends and family lay out in front of you, while you feverishly look for healthy alternatives on the fly.
3). Prepare. 

If you give yourself a break on purpose, that's up to you. If you wing it, though, you're guaranteed to fail. 
If you're intending to keep up with the diet, but still have (healthy) treats during the festivities this weekend, the only way to do it well is to prepare ahead of time.

Our Labor Day Survival Guide is here to help. 

How about some unbelievable Layered Salad, delicious Buttermilk Chicken, along with fruity "mocktails", and Pecan Bars? You won't miss out on any of the fun or flavor, but it'll be guilt-free.

As I will share in a future article, "Strategy Always Trumps Willpower" 

What I mean is that instead of trying to figure out how to avoid all the treats you could be having when you let your hair down during a holiday, just plan ahead a little bit and decide what you're going to do to keep up with the Kaufmann DietThe good news is that it's easier than ever to do this. It used to be that you were stuck with a Ziplock bag full of celery sticks and carrots while everyone else enjoyed something...well, good.

Trust me, though; you won't miss a thing with our Survival Guide recipes.  

So take a little time to think through which of these recipes - or any recipes in our books - work best for you this weekend. And don't forget the Essential Oils Insect Repellant to keep the bug bites at bay.
