I absolutely love this time of year. I love when the weather gets cold and I have to bundle up on the couch to binge watch netflix. I love the sound of Christmas music playing on the radio and the lights and decorations lining the streets of downtown. Visiting family and eating all the food. It all just puts me in a good mood. But this time of year is also the time period I spend building my base for the upcoming season. I typically take a break in November or December and then begin prepping my body for the upcoming season. In order to get my body back to where I want it to be I focus on my diet as I build. Prepping for the upcoming season comes during the build, not during the grind of high mileage and intense workouts. With the holidays this is always a little hard so I plan for a little indulgence and I make this, a healthy refined sugar free, dairy free, vegan dark chocolate jalapeno lime salted pie with a Purely Elizabeth walnut date crust.Read More
