6 Fall Nutrition Tips
Summer is over, but don't worry - your seasonal glow isn't going anywhere. To help you maintain healthy looking skin and energy as you transition into fall, check out these six tips straight out of the book Eat Pretty.
"Incorporate nutrient dense beauty foods like spirulina, chia and hemp seeds, lentils, avocado, and quinoa into your fall meals, which will help boost your energy."
"Drink water regularly. Research shows that adequate water intake helps replenish energy lost from dehydration, and it's essential for a healthy metabolism, nutrient absorption, elimination, and circulation."
"Add fresh herbs and spices to your dishes. According to some studies, ginger and turmeric help reduce redness and inflammation of the skin and aid digestion, while antioxidant rich basil, parsley, and thyme support a clear, youthful complextion."
"Eat zinc rich snacks, which research shows help you avoid breakouts. Pumpkin seeds, roasted chickpeas, and mushrooms dipped in hummus with tahini are great sources of this immune boosting mineral."
"Grab a favorite fall fruit that happens to be naturally detoxifying: the apple. An apple is high in pectin fiber and has the ability to support healthy digestion."
"Don't forget to include healthy fats into your diet, like those found in avocado, coconut oil, and raw nuts and seeds, which are great for your skin."
Happy fall y'all!
Acai Bowls - Our family's favorite snack!
They are like a thick smoothie in a bowl with yumminess of top! They are a main meal for me and a snack/dessert for our kids!
Here are my two favorite concoctions…
1. Powerful Stuff
1 cup Acai juice, 1/2 cup each of frozen mango’s and frozen peaches, 1 frozen banana ( I buys tons at the market each week, peel them and place them in a freezer ziplock), and 1 huge handful of spinach leaves ( I buy at least one large box a week of pre-washed organic spinach).
2. Pina Colada
1 cup Knudsen’s Pineapple Coconut Juice, 1/2 cup each of frozen mango’s and pineapples, 1 frozen banana, and 1 huge handful of spinach leaves.
Place all in VIta Mixer (a must-have… we use it multiple times everyday for the bowls and our smoothies). You’ll have to punch it down with the plastic “thing”:)
Top with your favorite things! We top ours (depending on each person’s preference) with Nature’s Own Pumpkin-Flax granola, Heep seeds, Coconut, sliced Strawberries, Blueberries and Raspberries. You can also add protein to the above mixture. We like an unflavored plant based protein from Whole Foods.
These proportions make one bowl each so I usually 3x’s it for whoever is home at the time. They’re about 280 calories but I don’t really concern myself with the calories because I know they are packed with goodness for me and my family!
Our kids love to make them too!
