Bring On the Pumpkin
When September hits we are all about the pumpkin. I started my “Healthy and Fit for Fall” TV segment with this savory Caribbean pumpkin curry soup recipe. It partially gets me in the mood for fall and partially takes me back to the Islands.
Easy and Effortless Help
The grocery store can be your bestie when you’re trying to pull together a quick meal. I made these easy ham tacos with some frozen sweet corn, black beans and cubed ham.
Cook from Your Pantry “Cantry”
You’ll also want to check out this vegetarian chili recipe I made from my “cantry”. Fresh fruits and veggies are picked at their peak and canned, often within hours, locking in their nutrients.
Prep Ahead to Save Time
These ground lamb meatballs have quinoa, carrots, and zucchini in them! Plus you can change it up. Try them with marinara sauce or make your own pizza!
Reach for Quality Snack Bars
Eating on the go is just part of how we do it as busy people. How do you decide when you’re swimming in an endless sea of protein or energy bars? Quality. I love KIND Snacks (and nuts and spices line especially). You can see the nuts in the bars and some varieties give you that little chocolate fix you’re searching for.
Fall Fitness Hydration
As a 15-time marathoner, I’ve had my fair share of sports beverages. I love BodyArmor because it tastes delicious and no artificial colors or flavors. Plus potassium packed electolytes (it’s made with coconut water) and low in sodium, unlike other sports drinks.
Pick up BodyArmor at Target, Wegman’s or Shoppers.
If you or your kids are athletes, give it a whirl with your fall sports and activities. Check out my tips for youth athletes hydration.
