With the arrival of the cooler weather and change of leaves, we know fall is in the air. Of all the seasons, fall is among the most favorite because it comes with many unique opportunities and treasures. Things like cider mills, hayrides, pumpkin patches, and of course, Halloween. And it doesn’t stop there. Just like any season, fall is associated with so many foods that we look forward to just as much as the changing of the leaves. Pumpkin muffins, apple cider, donuts, apple pie, caramel apples, spiced lattes, Halloween candy – the list goes on and on. And while many people are eagerly awaiting their first bite of pumpkin spiced pancakes this Sunday morning, those with eating disorders, body image issues and chronic dieting habits struggle with the idea of having to manage these seasonal favorites. And worse, the fun events that fall has to offer get pushed aside or ignored in an attempt to avoid being faced with these foods. The expert team of dietitians at Nutrition Counseling Center offer up these tips to move towards embracing all that fall has to offer.
