Fall is a great time to reset your routine and eating habits. I have tips to help keep your wellness in check this season.
My first tip is to eat with the seasons.
Winter squash like pumpkin, butternut, acorn and spaghetti takes center stage in the cooler months. Spaghetti squash is a naturally low calorie pasta swap that’s is rich in flling fiber and important nutrients like vitamin C andd potassium. Plus it’s mild in taste to it makes the perfect base for your favorite pasta sauces. Acorn squash is a creative way to enhance the presentation of your fall dishes. Use acorn squash halves as bowls for your favorite grain and protein dishes. And don’t forget about pumpkin! Puree cooked pumpkin into soups and stews for creamy flavor and a boost of beta-carotene antioxidants which are good for the skin and immune system.
Next, take the guesswork out of meal time by stocking up on easy, nutritious meal options.

You can find them at major retails including Walmart and Target.
Finally, support your wellness this season with nutrient-dense snack options.

Eggs are the single best dietary source to obtain it from.
