The Rebel Wellness Guide to Friendsgiving

Updated: Nov 27, 2019

It's no secret we like to indulge here and there. That's why we started this blog! To inspire people like us to maintain a healthy lifestyle that allows for the occasional indulgences that make life so enjoyable. Which brings us to Friendsgiving season... digging in at Friendsgiving is inevitable, but it doesn't have to leave you riddled with guilt afterwards. Our number one tip for getting through the marathon that is holiday cooking? Using quality ingredients.

Often times we get overwhelmed during the holiday season and it's easier for us to grab a box of instant mashed potatoes or order a honey baked ham from the grocery store. These seemingly innocent household staples are filled with oils, sweeteners, preservatives, and other chemicals that will leave you feeling unwell. Don't stress! We've rounded up some of our favorite Thanksgiving recipes you can make from scratch to get you through Friendsgiving season without all the funky junk while still wowing your friends...
