  • Breaking Bread Together & Apart
    Reimagine the season and bring better health to your holidays with Guiding Stars recipes that are easy to make and serve a small, distanced crowd. It takes planning, along with embracing ideas for a COVID-safe gathering and accepting a new take on old traditions. While it may not be the holidays you usually picture, with these ideas and tips, it can still be a season that brings family and friends together, even if while staying six feet apart.
  • Self-Care During the Holidays

While the holiday season is a busy time, it’s also a time for mindful moments, with opportunities to be thankful and express gratitude. Believe it or not, it can also be about self-care and choices that make things easier on you. Let’s see if we can start by building holiday food traditions that your family loves that don’t wear you down.
