Looking for a way to enjoy your favorite Holiday recipes without the constant worry that you’re about to “fall off the wagon”?

spoiler alert

That wagon belongs to diet culture so we won’t be getting on in the first place!

Join certified nutritionist Cara Clark for a nutrition and lifestyle opportunity that will keep you sane and satisfied throughout this upcoming season!

With the right balance of nutrition and mindfulness, we can embrace the upcoming holiday season without guilt or deprivation while making peace with the number that’s on the scale and having more energy than ever before.

But year after year, millions of women find themselves in the same cycle...

  • A little Halloween candy 🍬 here and there turns into nightly binge sessions on the couch...
  • Thanksgiving dinner 🦃 ends with feeling somehow EVEN MORE stuffed than the turkey…  
  • Christmas cookies 🍪 become a main dietary staple throughout the month of December…

And worst of all, these millions of women will beat themselves up and feel like they have to “start all over” by the time New Year’s comes around. 

sound familiar?

Then you’ve come to the right place… 

A judgment-free zone where Fall & Holiday favorites + new friendships take center stage.

(And we would never dream of asking you to make a second holiday meal for yourself.)

You're invited to take the

  Stress Management & Cortisol Regulation

During the festive season, while we're surrounded by holiday joy, it's crucial to recognize the hidden stress that often accompanies these celebrations. Elevated stress levels can lead to increased cortisol, a hormone that, when chronically high, can harm our mental and physical health. 

Factors like societal expectations, financial strain, family dynamics, and busy schedules can heighten holiday stress. To safeguard our well-being, it's essential to set boundaries, prioritize self-care, stay organized, and seek support when needed.

Maintaining our mental and physical health during the holidays is the ultimate gift to ourselves, and in this challenge, we'll share with you many ways to do just that!

here's how it works

Step 1:

When you register for the Healthy Holiday Challenge, you will receive a confirmation email in about 10 - 15 minutes.

Step 2:

You will receive your packet via email on or after October 30th. We'll start as a group on November 6th, but you can start (and restart) whenever it's right for you. Go at your own pace - the materials are yours forever and the private Facebook challenge group will be kept open indefinitely.

Step 3:

Join our private community to participate alongside us in the amazing CCN community.

here's what i know

In the 12+ years my team and I have offered challenges, we’ve met countless women who thought they had tried everything and still “failed”. 
But with this challenge failure simply isn’t on the menu.
Sure, this Healthy Holidays Challenge is meant to help you stay on track to reach your health goals throughout this holiday season — but you’ll have these materials for life. 
You can try these recipes now and remix them throughout the end of the year. Who knows, you might just find that these traditional Fall recipes become favorite staples of the season year after year!
You have nothing to lose except for the unhealthy habits that leave you feeling deprived and defeated. 

the A's to your Q's

How does this challenge work?

Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email for the challenge. Next, you will receive your packet on or after November 1st giving you a week to read through, grocery shop, and prep. We officially start LIVE inside the group on November 8th, but you can start at any time and go at your own pace. 

Meals are laid out for 14 days with 3 meals and 2 snacks per day. However, we encourage all participants to make the meal plan work for their lifestyle -mixing and matching is encouraged! We will have weekly check-in's and nutritional education and support provided via email. And while not required, joining our private Facebook group for the challenge fosters community and accountability! 

Upon completion of the challenge, all participants are invited to our private CCN Way of Life Facebook group where we continue the conversation around mindful, healthy eating! We can't wait for you to join us!

I can’t have carbs, if I see a carb I gain weight. Is this challenge right for me?

We believe at CCN through science that there are 6 essential nutrients, broken down into 3 macros and 3 micros. The 3 macros are CARBS, fat and protein. Whenever a program removes an entire essential nutrient or decreases it to minuscule amounts, that should be a huge red flag. 

We think of fuel/calories in terms of exercise, but we actually need fuel all day every day to keep things running smoothly. Carbs are the most effective way to fuel bodily functions: hormone levels, regulating body temperature, digesting food, etc. If we go too long without them, we could potentially cause our livers and kidneys to work too hard borrowing "fuel" from them. 

We eat carbs to fuel our brains and bodies and target fat cells. We keep the glucose in our bodies balanced and usable. We eat the right amounts to optimize nutrient absorption and keep our organs doing their jobs. 

Trust us, everyone needs carbs - the right carbs! And when eaten along with protein and fat, carbs are for everyone.

I have very specific nutritional needs, but want to participate. Are there accommodations, and are they still as effective?

Absolutely! Many of our challenge participants have anywhere from a slight intolerance to one food all the way to an exhaustive list of allergies. The beauty of CCN is that we can accommodate almost everyone.

This 2 week challenge is fully gluten and dairy free as written and we also provide a swap/substitution list to help. If you have any further concerns, please email us. We're happy to help!

I am pregnant and/or nursing. Can I still participate?

Yes! Our challenges are safe for pregnant women and are nursing friendly because CCN focuses on whole, natural foods. No weird supplements or ingredients you've never heard of here! 

Are the plans so restrictive that I will have to cook two different meals for myself and my spouse/family?

Your family truly can do the entire challenge with you, if they want. We focus on whole, natural foods and everyone (even kids) can benefit from a balanced and stable blood sugar. With that said, our challenges are also easily adaptable for individual needs. For example, you might serve a taco meat dinner differently - in a quesadilla for your kids, a burrito for your husband, and a taco salad for yourself - but you are still only cooking one meal. 

Does it feel like Christmas came early and you don’t know where to send your thank you card?

Hi, I'm Cara -

As a Certified Sports and Clinical Nutritionist specializing in weight loss, diabetes, prenatal, postpartum and sports nutrition, I’ve had the opportunity to explore clean eating and healthy habits with clients ranging from Olympic athletes and reality.
But my greatest source of pride has always been serving my everyday clients with group challenge programs that can meet you exactly where you’re at and help you make lasting changes in your lifestyle.

Just like Melissa:

“I am extremely happy with my progress. I participated in the challenge to reset my body, but I've had a mental reset as well.

The challenge has been a family effort, and my husband and daughter have enjoyed our dinners. We have new meals to add to the rotation. Thank you, Cara and team for helping to reset my mental and physical health.”

what others are saying about

Cara Clark Nutrition

“I feel a sense of dedication to our health that I’ve never really felt. I used to prepare 3 meals each evening as my daughter and husband each have their own dietary needs and restrictions and I thought the only way I could stay slim was by eating grilled chicken salads, and the last week has completely changed that way of thinking for me.”  


“I feel great and my sugar cravings are gone! I’m thankful for this plan because I don’t feel like I’m denying myself. It’s a very doable lifestyle. Thank you Cara and team for sharing your knowledge offering such great support!” 


“My unhealthy treat shortlist is getting shorter and I am addicted to the way I feel eating clean and balanced. The food prep was never over 30 minutes either, which is key for me. Every single recipe was doable, freezable, and not something I stressed over. Amazing job. This was the best challenge yet. My weight went down slightly but most importantly, I feel more energetic, focused, and my clothes look and fit better.”
