It’s as hard for us to believe as anyone else that “the holidays” officially kick off in just one week! We hope we aren’t the only ones already thinking about how to make this a healthful season where we spend more time giving thanks and less time feeling guilty.
We want to help ensure you have such a holiday season for yourself and your family. That’s why we’ve partnered with Bob Greene and team at The Best Life Diet for a five-week Holiday Survival Guide.
You’ll learn how to manage the craziest parts of the season – like overeating, stress, and fitting in a workout. If keeping you motivated weren’t enough, together we’re offering up more than $5,000 in prizes to help you end this year on a high note as you work on embracing all that lies ahead in 2013.
The Holiday Survival Guide kicks off on Tuesday, November 20 with a Twitter Party to get you in the spirit of this special event. Join us and the Best Life team for a one-hour event to introduce you to both of our social media teams, which will play an integral role in keeping participants motivated for five weeks.
Start at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT on Nov. 20
You can officially sign-up to join The Holiday Survival Guide on Monday, November 19 at TheBestLife.com. Then, you’ll receive five emails each week through December focused on a different element of managing the season in a healthful way. Plus, find Facebook and Twitter posts each day to keep you on track. (more…)
If it’s not entirely apparent yet, we really love food! We love food that’s fresh, homemade, wholesome, and pretty. We love food that tastes really, really good.
So we put all of that in our little mixing bowl and whipped up our first e-cookbook, a collection of our 13 best breakfast and brunch recipes. The book’s called Baker’s Dozen and will tempt you with each turn of the page. You’ll have no excuse not to get in the kitchen and prepare a healthier morning meal!
Download Baker’s Dozen Here for just 99 Cents! You’ll receive a PDF file to use on your iPad, iPhone, laptop, or other digital devices, which makes it easier than ever to have your favorite recipes right in front of you in the kitchen.
Some of the Baker’s Dozen recipes are personal favorites, like Sweet Potato Hashbrowns and Blood Orange Mimosas. Some forced us to step outside our own comfort zones to create something truly unique and delicious, like the Fig and Honey Breakfast Quinoa or the Savory Asparagus Prosciutto Crepes. Of course, we had to include exciting new takes on classic breakfast fare with our Sunny Side Up Breakfast Sandwich, Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pancakes, and Mason Jar Omelets.
Beautifully appetizing photography adorns every page with approachable ingredient lists, clear and easy-to-follow instructions, and nutrition facts for each recipe, provided by CalorieCount.com. Plus, we tell the story behind each recipe so it feels like we’re enjoying a casual Saturday breakfast together as friends!
We’re so close to 10,000 awesome fans on Facebook that we can taste it. And it tastes like guacamole! Wholly guacamole to be exact.
This weekend is National Guacamole Day (Sunday, September 16), and it seems like a perfectly good time to slide right in to 10,000 fans! Our good friends at Wholly Guacamole have made it even more enticing to come hang out with us on Facebook by offering a few delicious prizes.
