What You Will Learn In This Episode: 

The holidays are the worst time of year for healthy eating. It is so hard to go to family functions and not eat at least one piece of Grandma’s special pie or your sister’s marshmallow surprises that she baked fresh just for you. The balance between enjoying yourself and getting completely off track is a tough one, but hopefully this episode of Real IronDAD Radio will help you to stay on track for the holidays. No major changes…no life changing awakenings or food revolutions during the holidays…just a few simple things you can do to stay as healthy as possible during the holidays.

5 Tips To Help You Survive The Holidays: 

  1. Make yourself a raw meal. Salads are always good raw, but you can make yourself a bowl of fruit in the morning and be done. Make sure to check your dirty dozen app first though to make sure you are eating organic fruits. Try this Raw Vegan Peach Cobbler from Kris Carr.
  2. Do 25 pushups before you get into the shower. You can do it. Even if you are on your knees and do a modified pushup…you can do it. If you can’t do 25, do 5 or 10 and work your way up. This is an easy one and I hear Jamie Foxx does this too. Don’t you wanna be like Jaime Foxx?
  3. Do 25 squats before you go to bed. Who needs a blanket when you can do some leg-warming squats. Eliminate the food going to your thighs and burn it away before you sleep!
  4. Take a multivitamin. Make sure you take and organic, whole food vitamin only. You might also want to look into a time-released capsule or liquid multivitamin. As long as you go by these parameters when buying a multi, you should be all set.
  5. Take Vitamin C and lots of it! There is lots of vitamin c in fresh fruits and veggies. You can juice them and get a ton. You can also take vitamin C in powder form. You can find it in calcium ascorbate for sensitive tummies and its regular and most widely recognized form of ascorbic acid. When our kids are sick we give them their age in grams, so if your child is 4, you would give them 4g or 4,000mg of vitamin c. For kids you can get gummy vitamin c gummies. For adults you can mix it in orange juice or a liquid of your choice. There are no known or documented side effects for vitamin C.
