Fall Food Ideas

Part of me still believes it's summer here in Texas. Maybe it's the occasional sweep of sun rays and blue skies, or maybe it's just the kid in me not wanting the leaves to turn because a year-long summer means fun-fun-fun!

Inevitably, though, it's nearly November, and we're finally experiencing some cool weather, which makes the turn of seasons a little bit easier for me to bare.

To ring in the fall and the break of holiday feasts, I thought I'd share with you some fall-time foods. Soups are great options to fill up on veggies and lean protein, so that when your grandma tempts you with her pan of fresh baked cookies cut like angels (but really they're more like little demons), you can at least say you've eaten mostly clean beforehand.

Vegetable soup is one of the easiest things to make, and it's perfect for cool weather.

Toss all your favorite veggies in a crockpot, season them to your liking and cook on low for 4-6 hours.

Filling up on lean, white fish is another good choice because most of us are super-busy during this season.
Frozen fish thaws in about five minutes and cooks in about 10. Try popping them in the oven on broil (low) or sauteeing them in 1 tablespoon of coconut oil with some garlic and onions, or if you feel like splurging (hah), try covering them in some whole wheat bread crumbs (gluten-free options are available).

Stick around for more healthy, easy options for making this season special and scrumptious, without ruining your summertime physique.
