Fall Fitness and Nutrition Tips to Follow
You worked hard for that summer body, so why let it slip into disarray when fall comes around? So many people create a vicious cycle each year, starting around Halloween. By the time the New Year comes around, your pants are too snug and you feel like you’re back at square one.
Instead, try these fall fitness and nutrition tips that will keep your weight and your health balanced!
– Get Outdoors in the Great Outdoors
Fall may be the time many people slip into bad habits, but you can use it to your advantage. Instead of longing for the summer sun, get out there in nature and let it soothe your spirit. You can go for a hike, jog, run, or even a bike ride and enjoy it all the more with the cooler temperatures.
– Find Bliss with Indoor Workouts
Not everyone loves hearing the crunch of leaves under their feet. If you prefer a more structured environment, workout inside your home or gym. And if you really miss those summer swims, dive into a heated pool to do those laps.
– Infuse Your Nutrition with Fall Foods
Say goodbye to summer berries and welcome in the fall seasonal favorites into your kitchen. You can do more with pumpkins than you think. Beyond pumpkin pie, roasting those seeds make for a healthy snack that will sustain you. Plus pumpkin, like carrots, has carotenoids to help keep your heart and whole body healthy along with many other essential nutrients, so put it in your soups and stews for a warming meal.
Apples are also plentiful and as they say, they help you keep the doctor away. They’re low in calories but have loads of fiber, making them a great snack for on the go. Apples can add a nice sweetness and crunch to a salad too. Add some walnuts and you’ll feel fully satisfied with a healthy and delicious meal.
Pecans are another nut that you’ll find readily available in fall. While you might look forward to pecan pie, you can enjoy pecans as a healthy snack on their own. They go great on salads like walnuts do too, so make your own delicious creations in your kitchen.
