The holidays are around the corners and for the lovely Americans in my tribe, I know Thanksgiving day is just around the corner. But here's the thing, ever feel like those around you just don't get your healthy way of living? And that sometimes they can say the most inappropriate (and even mean) things? How do you deal with them? I hear this all the time in my free and private Sexy Food Therapy Community Group and believe me, I get it! So if you can relate then you are going to love what I have in store for you:
How to survive the holidays with healthy Thanksgiving recipes
Now let me start out by saying that this recipe isn't just for Thanksgiving, you can also have it for Christmas too. It's a great vegetarian side dish that can totally be veganized by swapping out the butter.
Now let's talk about reactions...
Listen no matter whether it's this or something else, someone at some point will give you some nasty comment. However if you're reacting to it harshly it's not helping anyone in the situation. But I get that it can be really tough. But understand that quite often it's from misinformed well intentioned people. Either that or they're insecure regarding their own health decisions
So here are some things that you can say:
Comment: Are you into all that "healthy" stuff
You: Ya and it's great! Do you have any questions?
Comment: You really don't need to lose weight. Just eat!
You: You're right I don't! So thank you I will eat my little heart away!
Comment: What you don't like my food?
You: I do! Actually I would also LOVE to take some for left overs with me. You know you make the best (INSERT DISH HERE). How do you do it every damn time? (compliments work really well at diverting conversations.
Comment: You know that gluten thing is just a fad right?
You: Really? (Insert laugh) It must be a great one because I've lost weight and I'm pooping like a champ since being off of it. You should TOTALLY try it **wink**
