December - No To Holiday Guilt

Greetings, December!


 SucuNewsletter - As we usher in the delightful swirl of December, we can't help but feel like we're dancing our way through this bustling season. The colder months have arrived, and the holidays are knocking on our doors. From el Dia de Los Muertos to Thanksgiving, to Christmas and soon New Year, we're all caught up in the whirlwind that carries us from Halloween to 2024. It's no secret that we tend to spread ourselves thin during these festive times.


As the stress of the season often extends to the stress of food and what food will do to our health we tend to find ourselves in a bind. Because while we may run ourselves ragged with holiday prep, we don't want to be running to stay in shape - was that too cheeky a joke? Perhaps, but unless you actually enjoy a good morning jog, we firmly believe that you should be able to enjoy the holidays without being totally thrown off or guilt-free. Your eating habits can remain delectable even amidst the chaos of the holiday season.


At Suculenta, we take a holistic approach to wellness and we take it very seriously. We don't believe in cutting out everything you love to fit into your dream body. Instead, we embrace the idea of intuitive eating and healthy alternatives. So, here's our favorite recipe for a holistic holiday glow-up:


1. Hormone Balancing: One of the key factors that might be throwing you off, especially for the ladies, is hormonal imbalance. It can be a game-changer when it comes to achieving your wellness goals. Start by incorporating hormone-loving ingredients into your diet, and watch how it transforms your life.


   - Cruciferous Vegetables: Think broccoli, cauliflower, and kale; these veggies contain compounds that can work wonders for your hormone balance.


   - Good Fats: Don't skimp on the healthy fats! Olive oil, flaxseed oil, avocados, and nuts all play a vital role in hormone production and keeping inflammation in check.


   - A Rainbow of Veggies: Variety is the spice of life, especially when it comes to vegetables. The more colors, the better for your hormone balance.


   - Herbs and Spices: Season your meals with an array of herbs and spices, like ginger, turmeric, sumac, paprika, and garlic, which not only add flavor but also promote hormone harmony.


   - Wholegrain Fibrous Carbs: Embrace slow-release carbohydrates like brown rice, buckwheat, and quinoa. They're packed with fiber and essential B vitamins to help balance hormones and eliminate spent hormones effectively.


   - Salmon: This fish is a treasure trove of omega-3 fats, essential for hormone production and reducing inflammation.


   - Brazil Nuts: Rich in selenium, these nuts are a secret weapon for hormone balance and overall thyroid health.


   - Eggs: These protein-packed wonders can help keep your hormones in check by influencing your appetite and food intake.


   - Leafy Greens: Dark, leafy greens like spinach, kale, and chard are chock-full of antioxidants, fiber, and essential vitamins to support your thyroid health and regular ovulation.


   - Protein Power: Foods like chicken breast and eggs can help regulate blood sugar levels, a key factor in maintaining balanced hormones.


   - Nutty Goodness: Walnuts and almonds are your hormone-balancing allies. Walnuts are anti-inflammatory, while almonds provide a protein punch.


2. Fermented Foods: These are your BFFs on your wellness journey. We've got kombucha in the fridge at Suculenta for a reason. They're your ticket to a happier gut and a healthier you.


3. Cultivate Self-Awareness: Remember, you can't hate yourself into loving yourself. Start by keeping a journal, noting the foods or meals that don't sit well with you. Take time to learn about your health, and be curious about the art of well-being. Learn to decipher your body's hunger signals and cravings. For example, if you're yearning for sweets or carbs, it might be your body's way of saying it needs more protein or vitamins. Ask yourself the right questions.


4. Establish Wellness Routines: Building routines around wellness is the secret sauce to thriving amid a busy lifestyle. Make a list of your non-negotiables and stick to them, no matter what—no negotiations, even with yourself.


As we embark on this journey through December and the whirlwind of festivities, let's take a moment to reflect on our wellness and nourishment. It's about finding that delicate balance between savoring the indulgent delights of the season and nurturing our bodies with the care they deserve. 


In our holistic approach at Suculenta, we're all about savoring the richness of life while remaining attuned to our bodies needs. 

Remember, it's not just about the food on your plate; it's about the relationship you have with your body - we preach loving yourself from the inside out. So, as the December winds sweep in, we invite you to embrace the season's joy while cherishing your well-being. Keep these holistic tips in mind, and together, we'll waltz through the holiday season with a radiant glow and a heart full of gratitude. Here's to a December filled with warmth, nourishment, and a deep sense of self-care.
