3 Ways to Get Excited and Stay Healthy for Fall
Revamp Your Food Choices
How do you get excited and stay healthy for Fall? Some people can still enjoy their smoothies and eat salads year round. For others, we tend to swap those for some warm and yummy comfort foods. However, healthy comfort swaps don’t have to be boring and tasteless. For breakfast, try making a hearty apple spiced oatmeal with cinnamon and walnuts or toasted seed bread with mashed avocado or almond butter with hemp hearts. For lunch, you can enjoy a warm soup, or a warm kale salad with quinoa, tofu, sweet potato and a drizzle of tahini. Be sure to stock up on nutritious snacks like homemade granola, protein date balls, or some cut veggies and dip to go. For dinner, enjoy a one pot meal of roasted veggies with chicken, seafood or an egg or a poke bowl with some healthy grains.
Continue to Drink Water!
Throughout the cold winter, many of us become more dehydrated and stop drinking as much water. Invest in a large preferably glass water bottle that you can carry wherever you go. Infuse with warm water with a piece of lemon, herbal teas or try adding a slice of raw ginger with a tsp of raw honey and mint leaves. YUM!!!
Even though it will be getting darker earlier try to stay active and motivated to keep up your fitness goals whether at home or in a studio. I also find it helpful to work out with a friend or buddy to keep you accountable. Think of Fall as a time to try something new such as yoga, dance, pilates, kickboxing, self defense or swimming.
