Inspiration for Healthy Holiday Eating!
Think it's *impossible* to eat healthy during the holidays??? Think again! Although our social calendars may be overflowing between now and the New Year, we actually can make healthy food choices all season long. Come learn how in truly festive fashion! This celebration/workshop will explore some of the common nutrition challenges we experience during the holiday season. We'll talk about some tips and tricks you can employ to stick to your healthy eating plan, revamp traditional recipes, and truly enjoy the holiday season without feeling any of the usual guilt. And, most importantly, we'll sample some of Taji's favorite homemade holiday recipes, plus some of Rachel's (your organizer's) as well! There may even be music and a cozy fire... :) OUR GIFT TO YOU: Fresh holiday meal ideas and inspiration to try a new recipe or two. And yes, you'll leave with actual recipes to make at home! ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Taji Mortazavi is a certified personal trainer with the Master of Science in Nutrition Education.

She loves exploring the behavioral and cultural implications behind food and providing clients with the tools and techniques to make healthy eating choices no matter what their circumstance.
