The Best Holiday Season Fitness Hacks To Stay Healthy (As Seen on ABC 7 Chicago)

When many people think of the Holiday Season, their mind automatically jumps to annual Christmas parties and other festivities. While these festivities are always a highlight of the season, they may leave you feeling like you need to put your fitness goals to the side. 

One of the ways I encourage my private weight loss clients to not feel as if they aren’t reaching their weight loss goals is to cut their fitness goals in half. The holiday season is a busy one, and if you are too hard on yourself you may want to throw in the towel or completely forget about your fitness progress. If you keep smaller more manageable goals that you’re more likely to reach you’ll end up boosting your morale and potentially overachieving your goals! 

Another way I’m able to encourage my clients to stay on track is to have them add plant-based probiotic drinks into their diets. One of my personal favorites is the new Plantiful probiotic drink from Lifeway Foods. Plentiful is a pea protein, which is a great way to incorporate vegan foods into your diet.  Lifeway Foods is known for their kefir, but this new allergen-friendly alternative to nut milks is a drink you’ll love. It has 10 grams of plant-based protein per serving and is perfect for post-workout. It also has 10 live and active probiotic cultures which is twice the amount found in most yogurts.

Plantiful is available at Fresh Thyme and Pete’s Fresh Market stores in Chicagoland. You can also get it as a soft serve frozen treat or in a smoothie at any Lifeway Kefir Shop location in Chicago.
