It is October and we are at the beginning of the Holiday season. In this month we become a little more health conscious (Breast Cancer Awareness), More Loving (Sweeties Day Oct. 16th) and more Anxious, because it is the start of the holiday season and they are all right around the corner from one another. Before you can recover from one, the next holiday is already here. Today we are going to discuss how we can make this season a little more enjoyable by starting it off with a bang, by giving our bodies what it needs to sustain and maintain us through the holidays.
Tammy Maltby is big on making Christmas memorable, delicious and fun for the kids. So it’s no surprise that her book, The Christmas Kitchen, is chock full of ways to do just that. “The White Christmas mix is one of my favorite activities. It’s Rice Chex, Wheat Chex, almonds, cashews and pretzels. Then I add red and green M&Ms—regular and peanut—and pour white chocolate all over it. Then I put the mix into bags and tie little ribbons around them,” the author tells Not Just Talkin' the Talk host Linda Goldfarb. “I make this with my kids, then I get terracotta flower pots and line the inside and put the mix in with a plastic pointsettia. Then the kids write a card to their teacher saying ‘Thank you for helping me grow.’ On the back they list three or four ways the teacher has helped the child grow that year. It’s an inexpensive, memory-building activity—that also goes over very well at school!”
Marnie Swedberg is on a mission to make this Thanksgiving and Christmas a joy for those who do the lion’s share of the work. “For women, a lot of the holiday responsibilities fall on our plates to organize and make sure all of this is happening each year. And it’s overwhelming because not only are you expected to do everything you always do, you’re expected to add 20 to 60 additional hours of preparation time,” the author of Marnie's Kitchen Shortcuts: Cut Your Cost, Cut Your Time, Cut the Fat tells The Best People We Know host Deb Scott. “By Christmas Eve, mom is so exhausted she’s not enjoying herself, and she’s not even fun to be around. Often she says things she later wishes she shouldn’t have said, which is tragic because it doesn’t have to be that way. So I’ve put together a Holiday Boot Camp to help us get organized enough to have a peaceful, enjoyable holiday season.”
Candi Fox and Randy Slovacek you to save money this holiday season, without skimping on the fun or sacrificing tradition. “If you get a gift in a big box wrapped in really nice paper, you can reuse that same paper to wrap a gift you’re giving someone else. You’ll also be helping save the environment, and you’ll save yourself time,” says Randy, co-host of The Candi and Randy Show. “If you go shopping for Christmas cards or decorations that day after Christmas, you can save like 75 percent—for next year. So it takes some planning, but it’s worth it. But be sure to remember where you put it,” he adds. “Decorations can also be expsensive. But you can get pine cones throughout the year and spraypaint them gold or silver, put them in a clear vase and add some of those pinpoint Christmas tree lights. That’s a really cute way of making a room look festive without having to spend hundreds of dollars all around the house.”
Chef Carlton Whisonant doesn’t kid around when it comes to seasoning during the holiday, ah, season. “This time of year, we need to talk about fresh herbs. Because not only will they enhance your Thanksgiving and Christmas dishes, they have strong medicinal properties,” says the host of The Healing Chef. "So they’ll add excellent aroma and flavor to your cooking, while also making you healthier. A lot of the herbs that we use all the time—cumin, blue violet, bayleaf, alfalfa, garlic, aloe vera, dill, cilantro, coriander—can be found at a regular grocery store. And the herbs you keep in your kitchen cabinet in a shaker are fine for ocassional use. But to get the full medicinal and culinary value, you’ve got to use fresh herbs.”

When it comes to the spookiest holiday of the season, Chef Jill Houk tells it like it is. “Halloween strikes fear in the hearts of most parents, because they realize the kids are going to be walking in with two metric tons of candy,” she tells The Recipe Box host Barbara Howard. Forunately, the author of The Essential Dehydrator: From Dried Mushroom Risotto to Grilled Tuna with Papaya Chutney, More Than 100 Recipes Bursting with Fresh Flavor has a host of tips for frazzled moms and dads looking to maintain nutritional sanity this October 31, including keeping candy-gathering to a minimum, and whipping up healthy treats that are high in fiber and antioxidants.
You gotta admire Michael Feinstein. Yes, for his prodigious jazz-piano talents and melifulous vocal stylings. But also for his willpower during the holiday season. “To quell my sweet tooth, I’ll have certain jams on vegan bread. As pathetic as it sounds, that’s a big treat for me this time of year,” he tells Laura Theodore, host of the PBS cooking show The Jazzy Vegetarian and its companion BlogTalkRadio series. “With all the temptations that come through the holidays, when I wake up in the morning I think, What am I gonna put in my body?” continues the musical artist, who cites vegan pumpkin pie as his favorite holiday dish. “I visualize how it feels when I eat a certain food. Because we know intuitively what’s good for us and what’s not. Our body tells us what it wants. So I try and eat very simply, and not to get overwhelmed with all the choices.”
Caterina “Kitty Cat” Borg doesn’t like to waste anything during holiday-entertaining season—not even her centerpieces. “We always wanna do something that’s going to be the highlight of your table. Of course we don’t want to always do artificial things—as great as it is to put out a bouquet of flowers. But how cool is it to make something that people can eat off of, and you can reuse it at a Thanksgiving or Christmas or New Year’s party?” the pastery chef tells Brilliant Ideas Radio host Hank Bob. “Have you ever made rock sugar? Well, it makes for beautiful centerpieces. A few years back, it became very chic, and you’d see it served in high-end hotels on the side of coffee and tea. And the rock-sugar centerpiece is a good one because it requires no baking. If you do like to bake, I’ve got another one that’s made of red-velvet cupcakes and with white-chocolate stars that’s just as easy and doesn’t take much time at all.”
Laura McIntosh wants to help keep meal-planning insanity to a minimum this holiday season. “If you can take the time to organize, it won’t be so hectic. I have a really big family. We’ve done up to 35 people for dinner—with two turkeys. For parties like that, it makes sense to be hyper-organized, like putting little stickers on the serving dishes so when the food’s done, you know what goes where,” the host of the PBS cooking series Bringing It Home tells In the Kitchen’s Jackie Plant. “But keep your menu to the four main ingredients—turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy—then do just one extra dish and get real creative with it. Like a corn chowder soup, or sliced persimmon with candied pecans and dried cranberries salad. Have a signature dish to make the meal memorable.”
“A lot of people have economic stress are thinking they can’t do anything this holiday season,” says Hannah “The Five Minute Mom” Keeley. “I tell them to drop the doom and gloom and get a little creative. Take, for example, the tradition of maxing out your credit cards every year while shopping. Instead of that, I recommend people have an envelople system. That’s where they take the cash they expect to spend on each family member or friend, and put each amount in a separate envelope,” the host of the UAN reality TV series Hannah, Help Me! tells In the Kitchen’s Jackie Plant. “That’s a physical reminder to stay within your budget. So when the cash is gone, the spending is done. This system often makes you wiser. You make much better choices.”
