If you've heard it once, you've heard it a million times: You can't out work a bad diet. Your workout is important but you can never neglect your diet!
With the fall season knocking on the door, here are 7 wonderful, seasonal foods
that will satisfy your appetite and help you maintain your weight loss goals!
Pears are full of fibre. They contain six grams per medium sized fruit! Eating pears can help you prevent bloat and keep your digestion functioning!
Maybe you're used to only eating them in sauce form at Thanksgiving but cranberries are a good source of ursolic acid. Ursolic acid has been shown to aid in weight loss so you might want to consider adding these tart tasties to salads or other dishes.
3. Spaghetti Squash
This squash is high in antioxidants and low in calories. The best part about it is that it can stand in for pasta in many of your favourite dishes! When your comfort food becomes healthier, how can you not lose weight?
One apple contains 5.5 grams of fibre! Seriously! They are high in pectin, a fibre that is particularly filling, so grabbing them at snack time can be helpful all year round!
Sage is the perfect component to many fall dishes. Sage is not only calming and soothing but it has been shown to aid in digestion!
Not just for pies or Jack-O-Lanterns, one cup of pumpkin contains three grams of fibre for less than 50 calories. Try one of these dessert recipes
, and you'll be singing pumpkin praises before long!
7. Brussels Sprouts
It amazes me that something I hated so much as a child can seem so delicious to me as an adult! High in fibre and nutrient rich, this vegetable makes a perfect side dish. Brussels sprouts also contain three grams of protein per cup!
Which of these foods will you be grabbing on your next trip to the grocery store or farmer's market? What will you try first?
