Healthy Lifestyle


Today, is 1 month away from Christmas!!! I can't believe it. Right now, the snow is falling and the roads are super slick!

I'm so glad to have made it home safe and am now enjoying Starbucks Peppermint Mocha coffee in my favorite holiday mug!

I'm all bundled in a cozy blanket reading " The Daniel Plan" written by Rick Warren. 

My husband and I are trying to figure our how to live the best and healthy life we can. This book is a version of the Daniel Diet, which is something I have never completely participated in. The Daniel Diet is all about eating fresh foods , little to no carbs and minimal meat. 

This book is recieving negative reviews because many people who have read the Daniel Diet from the Bible aren't a fan. I, however am enjoying this book because I think has a realistic view of the Daniel Diet! This book is was written by Rick as he began to see that he and his church members were overweight and not living a healthy lifestyle that they were intended to do. 
I like the recipes and ideas this book offers. They are practical and you don't need to be a chef to make these meals. That's a bonus for me! I'm a terrible cook!!!

If you're looking to get an extra start or boost on healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle, this gives you a good game plan to help through the Christmas Season. I'm trying to keep the weight off, yet enjoy the season.

Q: How do you maintain your weight during the Holiday season??

Sounds like a good book! I've heard of the Daniel Plan but never implemented it in my own life...it sounds way tough. I like that this book takes a different spin on it! I like Rick Warren, too!
