12 Days of Healthy Hormone Hacks

It’s that time of year again - the holidays!

The holidays can wreak havoc on your hormones as you tend to focus SO much on giving to others this time of year and not so much on giving to yourself as you run around from holiday parties, last minute gift shopping and visiting family or friends.




By the end of it all, I bet you usually feel wiped out and wondering why you feel so fat, tired and sick all the time - it’s because your hormones took a hit!

To help you keep your hormones intact this holiday season, today I’m kicking off a Facebook series called “12 Days of Healthy Hormone Hacks for the Holidays”

Over the next 12 days on Facebook, catch my videos and posts where I’ll be delivering simple tips for practical things you can do to keep your hormones balanced while you enjoy the holiday season!

Here’s a sneak peak at what I’ve got lined up for you starting today…

Day 1 - Fill Up With Fat

This likely sounds counterintuitive, but trust me, it’s not when it comes to your hormones, energy levels and kicking cravings!

In order for the body to make hormones, it needs you to eat healthy dietary fats that are broken down into LDL and cholesterol to make hormones along with other nutrients such as B vitamins. Yep, you heard me right. LDL and cholesterol are actually necessary to make hormones. They get a bad rap, but they are not bad for you if sourced in a healthy way.

Filling up with healthy fats can also help to balance your blood sugar for longer-lasting energy, to reduce inflammation and to kick cravings.

So what kinds of healthy fats should you indulge in during the holidays?

  • Avocado on its own, as guacamole or as an oil

  • Full fat coconut milk in your coffee, tea and/or smoothies

  • Organic, nitrate-free and gluten-free bacon

  • Cold-Pressed and organic olive or coconut oil in cooked or baked goods

  • Grass-fed ghee instead of butter (less inflammatory)

  • Fatty cuts of organic and pasture-raised meats and eggs

One of my favorite fat-bomb beverages is my Hot Chocolate Cravings Buster. Adjust the ghee as you see fit.



I always fill up on fat before I hit a holiday party or aim to eat the fattiest snacks while I’m there, to keep my hormones happy and my hunger under control.

Focus on filling up with healthy fats at least once a day and notice the way it makes you feel more full, more energized and craving free.


Join me starting December 12 as we kick off the #12DaysOfHealthyHormoneHacks!
