Fall is in full swing.
That means cooler weather, fall activities and seasonal foods. Focusing on a healthy autumn will help you feel great and be ready for the holidays. Here are three easy tips to keep you healthy this fall!
EAT SEASONAL FOOD
The autumn harvest brings a variety of healthy and delicious produce, from squash and sweet potatoes to apples and pears. Buying local seasonal produce helps our local economy and it results in better nutrition. Check out Ferguson Farmer’s Market for a great selection! So dig into fall fruits like apples, cranberries, pears, pumpkin and grapes that offer essential vitamins and antioxidants. On the veggie side, try fresh greens, acorn or butternut squash, sweet potatoes and yams, brussels sprouts and cabbage to add colorful and nutrition packed produce.
KEEP THE SUMMER MOMENTUM
It’s easy to get outside and be active during the summer. When cooler weather comes, you may slow down or get busier with indoor activities. Make it a goal to get out of the house every day for a walk or join a gym. For outdoor activities, go apple picking or to a pumpkin patch. Find a new hiking path, take a brisk bike ride or try canoeing a local river. The idea is to just keep moving and find fun, safe ways to take in the great fall season.
No matter what recreational or outdoor work activities you do in the fall, hydration is key to keeping the body in ideal condition. You always need to drink water during any outdoor sports, activities or work to ensure your body has the fuel it needs to recuperate and recover quickly. Drinking water will replace what was lost and keep the body’s fluid levels correct.
