While I try to focus a whole lot more on clean eating and nutrition than anything else when it comes to food these days, there are just some connections I can’t help but ignore.
One of my fondest memories from this time of year is coming home to fresh baked pumpkin muffins on a Sunday morning when my dad had been staying with my grandpa after his stroke. We’d gather in the kitchen and enjoy them as a family as a fun way to reconnect and enjoy a little treat after having all gone our separate ways throughout the week.
Y’all! I’ve already told you I’m on the fall train over here! But I may not have told you I’m making it my mission to create as many new, delicious, AND healthy recipes as I can. But I am now!
Fall flavors and foods are part of what I love most about the season, but they aren’t always the most nutritious. I want to change that, so I’ll be sharing some of my favorite clean eating recipes with all of the yummy fall flavors. This breakfast recipe is a perfect way to start off the season!
I don’t know about you, but about the time I see the first leaf fall (okay, it’s really when everyone heads back to school), I’m ready to don my scarf and boots and start sipping my Pumpkin Spice Latte – the healthy one of course! I seriously love EVERYTHING about fall!!! You’re probably thinking, “So what’s the problem?” Or maybe you guessed it already…
As much as I love all of the scents and flavors and fun of fall, it can all wreak havoc on my nutrition and fall fitness routine! Although delicious, most of the flavors of fall are a bit decadent and less than nutritious. And with the extra busyness of the season (with after school practices and football games and harvest festivals…) who really has a ton of time to or wants to take the time to work out? So what’s a girl to do?!
I don’t know what it is but as soon as everyone starts heading back to school, I feel like it’s automatically fall. And you know what that means…It’s time for all things pumpkin – at least in my world! One of my favorite parts of fall is getting to enjoy all the delicious flavors! Traditionally fall flavors are a little decadent, so I love finding healthier ways that I can still enjoy them like these #PSL Overnight Oats!
Let me be totally honest with you…I was always the girl who hated working out. (Truth be told, I hated the thought of a workout. I even hated to sweat.)
But once I started working out and looking at it as an opportunity to take care of myself, I started enjoying it! Okay, okay, that may be stretching it a little…I’d still rather be snuggled on the couch with my little reading our favorite books, but you get what I mean.
So when I start dreading my workouts and pushing them until as late in the day as possible, I know something is up. When that starts happening, I know it’s time to try something new. And while I know everyone is different, I bet the same is true for you too. So I want to share a few ways you can tell it’s time to switch up your workout routine plus a simple solution that’s made that “switching it up” thing easier than ever for me!
