After the major amounts of delicious food I devoured over Thanksgiving and now Christmas, I feel very much like frosty the snowman. Bloated and fluffy. It feels not-so-good. I would MUCH rather feel tight and toned! I was looking for a way to detox all of the guck I ate over break out of my system and start of the year fresh and healthy, and that is when I found this yummy holiday detox!

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 1-2 cups of stem-less kale
  • 1 cup apple cider (unsweetened)
  • 1 cup of ice/water
  • Dash of cinnamon1425862737615

Blend all of these ingredients together until the mixture is smooth. If you want a juice-like texture, use water. If you want more of a smoothie-like drink, go for ice. If you want some extra healthy protein, toss in a handful of your favorite nuts before blending! Just an FIY, the drink will naturally separate as it sits, so there may be a layer of foam at the top of the drink after sitting a while. Just stir it up and drink it down!

I’m ready to detox and feel fresh again. Are you?

XOXO, Chels

Celebrating Christmas in college may seem different because you are older, and you may be away from home. Just because it is different doesn’t mean it has to be any less spectacular! You may be neck-deep in homework, but there is always room for Christmas cheer. Here is how to pump up the Christmas spirit when you are in college.

  1. Get a small cute tree for your dorm room that has cute twinkly lights.
  2. Speaking of twinkly lights — put them everywhere! Hang them from the ceiling, the walls, around the windows, anywhere that you think needs a little Christmas cheer.
  3. Write a Christmas list. Your parents are probably wondering what you are wanting for Christmas, so make it easy on them.6a015431fc4e55970c01b8d0a53e4a970c
  4. Find out if your campus is holding any Christmas-themed events, and go to them! Is there caroling going on in the dorms? Go to it! Gingerbread house decorating contest? Go! Secret Santa? Do it!
  5. Decorate stockings with your roommates. And while you’re doing it, watch Elf.
  6. Go ice skating, visit a Christmas tree farm, go to a local church’s Christmas production, and find other fun local Christmas events in your area.
  7. Bake Christmas cookies and deliver them to everyone in your hall.
  8. Listen to Christmas music while you study.
  9. Take “family Christmas pictures” with your friends. So funny.

These are just a few easy ways to get in the Christmas spirit in college that you may not have thought of. What do you do to get into the Christmas spirit?

XOXO, Chels
