As a busy professional stress is definitely part of the week. In my opinion it is not about finding a life that has no stress... it is all about understanding stress management and what that means for you. Stress management is extremely important for the busy professional as it determines mood, productivity, energy and confidence.

Dairy is a food group that many of us a lot in our diet. However, did you know that American dairy causes harmful inflammation to the body, preventing proper nutrition absorption or fat loss from occurring, and for some people causing energy crashes?

While this beverage can be enjoyed while gift shopping, on long wintery walks or just sitting by the fire it also packs a serious calorie and sugar punch. The following are some of the most popular hot chocolate beverages that are consumed this time of year:
Tim Horton’s Medium Hot Chocolate: 300 calories with 49 grams sugar (that’s over 12 teaspoons!)
Starbucks Grande Peppermint Hot Chocolate: 420 calories with 61 grams sugar (that’s over 15 teaspoons!)
McDonalds Deluxe Medium Hot Chocolate: 400 calories with 55 grams sugar (that’s over 13 teaspoons!)
Nestle Hot Chocolate Mix with Milk: 325 calories with 21 grams sugar (that’s over 5 teaspoons!)
