Dr. Joey's Newsletter - December 2016
It is the season of holiday gift giving, being with family and friends and giving back. Being a time of gratitude and reflection, my team and I want to take a moment to thank you for letting us into your homes each and every month. It is with great pleasure that we try, taste and test new recipes, products and books that we think you will love. We also truly adore a good health and nutritional transformation, so sharing stories of those who have successfully lost weight and are feeling their best is one of our favourite things to do.
And so... from all of us, to all of you, we wish you health, happiness and so much joy. Stay tuned for lots more in 2017!
With love and gratitude,
Dr. Joey Shulman DC, RNCP

The gift that gives back
One of my all time favourite gifts to give are blessing baskets. When you purchase a blessing basket (which has been blessed and beautifully crated by an artisan that has been living in poverty), you empower families around the world not to just exist, but to thrive. Blessing basket founders pay their artisans 2.5 times fair trade for their handicraft which allows them to break the cycle of poverty. Each blessing basket product comes with an artisan-attached card so you can read more about them and the programs you are supporting.

For the coffee or tea lover
If you have someone in your life that is a tea or coffee lover, this milk frother by Breville is the perfect gift! From matcha lattes (my favorite) to morning cappuccinos, you can make a single serving or as much as 3 cups when guests are over. Easy to use, easy to clean and attractive looking on the counter.

For the exercise lover

For the sugar craver/nighttime eater
While most people start off their day in a healthy way, many do not finish their day off this way. This is exactly why I created Skinnychews! Skinnychews offer 2 grams of fiber per chew, are chocolately, gluten free and can help squash your sugar craving. Only 2 skinnychews per night will do the trick, helping you make it to the next day without a food binge.
