Is it too early to listen to Christmas music?!

 Now that Halloween is over, Kelli says it's time to break out the Christmas music! Scott says "No Way!" Poll question...Is it too early to listen to Christmas music? Why or why not?

Matthew West called in to the show today (after dropping his phone in the toilet!) to share about the exciting day he had hanging out with one of the families that shared their story with him. He wrote the song "One Less" about their adoption story. Today, he got to hang out in their living room with their new blended family!

Christine Avanti's tips for surviving Thanksgiving dinner!

Christine Avanti's tips for surviving Thanksgiving dinner!

Did you know that at Thanksgiving dinner, the average American consumes more than 4,500 calories and 230 grams of fat? 

 

And that’s not counting breakfast and late night left-overs!  To burn it off you would have to run for 7 hours or lift weighs for 10 hours or do pilates for 20 hours- good grief!  Thank goodness we have our favorite celebrity nutritionist and chef Christine Avanti (oh- she’s on fire for Jesus too) on our side to help us get through this holiday season- after all this is the most fattening time of the year. 

 

Christine’s Thanksgiving Survival Tips:

 

1)  Choose sweet potatoes over mashed potatoes with gravy.

 

2)  Skip the rolls even if they are whole wheat- they are high in carbs and you will probably find other carbs that you will enjoy even more. 

 

3) Go for broccoli over green bean casserole or make your green beans with sautéed caramelized onions instead of cream of mushroom soup and fried onions. 

 

4) Eat the pumpkin pie filling and leave the crust behind.

 

5) Enjoy white meat turkey with cranberry and nix the gravy.

 

If you like candied yams or sweet potatoes – you will love Christine’s Whipped Sweet Potatoes with Coconut Crunch topping.

176 calories, 6 grams of fat

 

They are infused with fresh cranberries for fiber and an antioxidant boost.  Organic coconut sugar, which is low on the glycemic index (it does not spike insulin like refined sugar), organic shredded coconut and coconut oil which has a compound called lauric acid that helps boost immunity and metabolic rate!
