The leaves are changing colors and the air feels crisp! Today, the weather really started to cool down here in North Carolina. My summer clothes have been put away until next season and the sweaters have been resurrected. With the weather change, I notice that my wardrobe isn't all that gets a makeover.
My diet transforms into warm and comforting dishes. The cool crisp salad gets exchanged for a hot vegetable soup. Every morning, I love a warm mug of hot tea. At times, I treat myself to a mocha or pumpkin spiced latte from Starbucks. These foods bring warmth and comfort to the cool, dark days of fall and winter.
What are you finding yourself craving this fall? Resist the urge to add creamy, calorie dense foods into your regular routine and find comfort in the warm, healthy alternatives!
