Make Better Food Swaps This Season
While it’s okay to indulge in a delicious delicacy from time to time, focus on consuming nutrient-dense meals this fall. Here are simple seasonal swaps you can make to ensure a healthy fall.
Change Your Edible Décor:
Having a bowl of candy-corn in your home as a festive display is a recipe for disaster unless you have serious will-power. Swap out bowls of sugar with freshly picked apples for seasonal décor that’s healthy and delicious.
Lighten Up Your Latte:
Pre-made pumpkin lattes are filled with sugar and empty calories. Create your own version with fat free milk, organic pumpkin puree & pumpkin pie spice.
Swap Your Cider:
Sweet apple cider can contain excess sugar and little to no health benefits. Swap it out for an herbal apple tea for naturally sugar-free beverage. .
Switch-Up Your Stew:
A hearty stew feels like a warm hug on a cold autumn night. However, when packed with fatty meat and potatoes, it can leave you feeling sluggish. Use lean meats or chicken and load up on fresh veggies for a healthy and delicious fall dinner.
Portion Your Pie:
There’s nothing like enjoying a freshly baked pie in the fall. However, practicing portion control while indulging is crucial. Make sure you have a reasonably sized slice so you can enjoy the taste without over doing it.
