Fall Eating



As the temperature cools and the days grow shorter, some of our healthy habits may take a backseat. Studies have shown that people increase eating, especially carbohydrates, during the fall months. Luckily, there are many nutrient-rich foods that flourish in the fall months! Start planning meals that incorporate apples, squash, pears, sweet potatoes, pumpkin and cauliflower. These, and many other fall foods, are packed with vitamins, minerals and fiber and can easily be found in your local grocery or farmer’s market! When you need hearty, rich meals, cook soups with broth instead of cream; stews with lots of veggies and less potatoes; pies with egg whites and low-fat milk. And don’t forget to move!

Take advantage of the moderate weather and talk long walks or ride your bike in the park. Let’s Fall into healthy habits, #fitfam! -afiya
