Comfort Food Weather aka Autumn

The Autumn chill is in the air and for me that brings on specific food cravings. Bowls of oatmeal and soup to keep my bones warm. Thoughts of comfort food like pumpkin and butternut squash...Yum!

There is no reason why we should fall off our healthy lifestyle because our bathing suits are tucked away for a while. Yes, jeans and sweaters, along with long coats will be adorning our beautiful bodies. Cuddling up in front of the fireplace sipping warm hot chocolate 🙂 I am a winter baby so I know how great that sounds.....I LOVE the cold months!

Now my question? Do you really want to go through that stress of "having to lose the pounds" for bathing suit season AGAIN next year?!?!? Why? Why not just continue to eat your healthy fruits and veggies? I know, there are plenty of days where a cold salad on a cold day is not appetizing. Which is precisely why I am making Sautéed Spinach and Kale Chips to go along with my Grilled Salmon & Oven Baked Sweet Potato as we speak.

I made my grocery list on Sunday evening to get myself ready for the week and on it were all the necessary ingredients I needed to make myself a large pot of Butternut Squash soup. I like to cook a large amount to enjoy a serving that day, and to also freeze for those days I don't have time to cook.

Stay true to yourself and stay on the right track. Make healthy clean living your priority, no matter what season it is. Don't wait for "that day" to say ugh, I have to "diet" Allow your "diet" to be the right one everyday of your life! Balance & moderation will lead to true joy, health, & happiness.....

Have a Great one & Get moving! 🙂
