1. Try a gut-healthy recipe from HUM Nutrition
Incorporate fibrous, prebiotic sweet potatoes and probiotic-rich dried cranberries in a quick and easy winter salad.

3. 3 Mood-Boosting Tips & Journaling Prompts from Parsley Health
- Consider adding in EFT, or tapping for 2-3min in your morning routine. This will help activate your parasympathetic nervous system and help give space for you to process the things that you need
- Check-in on your relationship with food and movement. Are you putting your value or worth in the things that you eat or do? Try moving away from labeling foods as good/bad, healthy/unhealthy. This will give space for you to connect to food and see how you feel physically when eating food.
- Remind yourself that your value and worth comes from within, not anything external that you can do or receive from others.
