Well, it’s that time of year again! Thanksgiving is right around the corner and Santas are already popping up in malls everywhere. The holiday season, for many, can be one of the hardest times when it comes to staying healthy. Tons of food, tummy-masking layers, and cold weather can all contribute to a downward slump in your healthy lifestyle. I’m here to tell you, it doesn’t have to be that way! By following a few simple tips, you can be well on your way to your healthiest and happiest holiday season yet.
I always know that fall has arrived when people start obsessing over the Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks. Overheard conversations, Facebook statuses, and Tweets all tell me one thing: people seriously love those suckers! Now, while I can definitely appreciate the allure of fancy coffee drinks, their sky-high price and often times questionable ingredients are kind of a bummer. So, I’ve come up with a recipe for pumpkin spice syrup you can make at home. It’ll be significantly cheaper and all of the ingredients are wholesome as well as delicious.
I love finding new foods whether it be an interesting vegetable at the farmer’s market or a wholesome product on store shelves. Something I’ve been obsessing over for the past month or so is Ella’s Kitchen fruit and vegetable puree pouches. Yes, I am talking about baby food, but, trust me, adults love this stuff too. In fact, the girl at the checkout counter told me so. She’s a fan herself and said that many other customers are too. So, I’m not the only adult out there gobbling this stuff up.
