It seems to be true that for many of us, Summer is not our healthiest season of the year. With jam packed schedules, most of us spend the early part of each week recovering from one weekend getaway before we jet off to the next weekend wedding or event. Not to mention all of those weeknights spent catching up with friends over a cold, crisp, happy hour beverage and enjoying the warmer weather! No wonder those healthy meal plans and scheduled spin classes are temporarily interrupted!
It’s ok, it happens to all of us. Now let’s take advantage of fresh start as we begin a new season and there is motivation to start fresh!
Here are 8 incentives for you to kick start your HEALTHIEST FALL YET with Ripe Stuff…
(1) All things Pumpkin.
Pumpkin lattes, scones, muffins, breads and every other pumpkin-based baked creation are EVERYWHERE. It is an epidemic. But no one is complaining. The popularity continues even in light of Starbucks‘ refusal to disclose the real ingredients. Disturbing. While an occasional pumpkin indulgence is a welcome Fall treat, I do advise against becoming a daily pumpkin groupie! To recover from your pumpkin binges, our cold-pressed Apple Picking juice is sure to hit the spot. Ingredients: Apple + Pears + Fall Happiness.
(2) The return of cozy clothes, layers…and the dreaded post-Summer skinny jeans.
Bring on the layers. But hold the jeans. Skinny jeans can be a rude transition from Summers flowy sundresses. Feel good in your body, feel good in your Fall favorites and avoid the dreaded skinny jeans lunge-dance…
(3) Cold & Flu season is around the corner.
Now is the best time to give your immune system a boost! Cold and flu season begins in October and overstays its welcome lasting as late as the end of May. Talk about an unwelcome house guest. Build your defense against the sniffles with the power packed Immunity Booster. A delicious concoction of immune rich vitamin C packed citrus, warming cayenne spice and antioxidant rich turmeric. How’s that for D.E.F.E.N.S.E.?
(4) Reset your taste buds for healthy comfort food cravings.
Fall welcomes back the oven with open arms. Cool, crisp evenings beg for warm cooked meals. This is a slippery slope into the world of comfort food. Jump start your taste buds with a little Ripe Stuff loving to tune them into the lighter side of comfort foods this Fall. You will be inspired to whip up roasted veggies, spaghetti squash and hearty soups in no time.
(5) Holiday season starts early.
It is a marathon, not a sprint. Best start warming up now.
