The final month of yet another year.  Once again, I'm trying to figure out where the time goes.  The older I get, the more I realize how important it is to live fully in each and every moment and treasure them like gold.

Almost all of my adult life I have offered health and wellness to  others.  For over 25 years, I've taught (probably thousands) of people Yoga, and I just rang in my seventh anniversary with my online health and wellness company in which I've helped hundreds more succeed in their health goals.  It is with this in mind that we prepare our New Year, New You health challenge.

Get ready NOW to kick off January with our health challenge. Effective tips, strategies and loads of support, along with one of our 30 Day Health and Longevity Packs will guarantee you results like more energy, weight loss, better sleep, reduced signs of aging and a whole lot more.  Find out more at www.intoyoga.ca/healthybody.htm.

 

Registration starts for our Winter classes in the next few days, so be sure to check the location of your choice and register early.  You'll find all our classes at www.intoyoga.ca/classes.htm.

Happy Holidays!

10 Ways to Avoid the Post-Holiday Weight Gain & Look Fabulous By New Year’s

You know the cycle at this time of year: Indulge in the treats that float around the office; enjoy just one more helping of that delicious meal; cozy up in a sweater on the couch and watch a movie or TV all day and simply relax.

Break the cycle and start the new you TODAY!

Stop giving into the temptation of calorie- and sugar-laden treats and discover how good it feels to be active, have energy and feel comfortable in your own skin no matter what time of year.

For many of us, the biggest eating holidays of the year are quickly approaching and rather than feeling guilty and unhealthy going into the New Year, you can embrace healthy habits and start feeling good now.

Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Sausage and Kale Recipe  (serves 4)
View Original Recipe www.simplyrecipes.com


Baked spaghetti squash tossed with sautéed onions, kale, sausage, and Parmesan cheese.

Ingredients

3 Tbsp olive oil
One 3-pound (1.4 kg) spaghetti squash
3/4 pound (340 g) turkey sausage (or any favorite sausage)
1/2 cup minced red onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 to 2 cups thinly sliced kale
1 cup (100 g) coarsely grated Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh oregano
Kosher or sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Preparation


1.
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Oil a sheet pan with one tablespoon of the oil, or line the sheet pan with Silpat.

2.
With a sharp chef's knife, slice off 1/2-inch from the ends of the spaghetti squash. Then stand the squash up on one of the ends to stabilize it, and cut the squash in half, top to bottom. Scoop out any seeds and stringy bits inside, and place the squash halves cut-side down on the oiled or lined sheet pan. Poke the tops of the halves with the tip of a sharp knife.

3
Bake for 35 to 45 minutes until you can easily poke the sides of the squash with a fork. Remove from oven and let sit until cool enough to handle. Then using the tines of a fork, scrape out the "spaghetti"-like strands of the squash to a bowl.

4.
Pinch and remove small chunks of sausage from the sausage casings to a plate.

5.
In a large sauté pan, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil on medium heat. Add the onions and cook until soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Then add the garlic and cook for a minute more. Add the sliced kale and cook for a minute or two. Add the sausage, and cook without stirring, until the sausage starts to brown, then stir and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the sausage bits are cooked through, about 2 to 3 minutes.

6.
Add the spaghetti squash strands to the sausage mixture and stir to combine, cook until the squash is heated through, about a minute.

7.
Remove from heat and add the grated Parmesan cheese and oregano. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
