Everything about fall is amazing! From the flavours of the food to the fun outdoor activities, we love this crisp morning air season. To give you some ideas of what to eat, drink, do and wear this season, we’ve created our top 10 list of favourite things about fall.
- Breaking out the Fall Wardrobe
Although we’ll miss being able to throw on a summer dress and flip flops and head out of the house, we’re so excited to bust out our fall clothes. Sweaters, scarves, jeans, boots and cute jackets are some of the clothes we’ll be wearing all season long.
- Pumpkin Everything!
One of the best things about fall is the delicious pumpkin-flavoured treats that we always whip up. We’re starting our mornings with our Pumpkin Pie Pro70 Smoothie and indulging in some dairy and wheat-free Pumpkin Pie for dessert.
- The Flavours of Fall
We can’t get enough of all the delicious fruits and veggies that are now in season. This year, we’re planning on roasting lots of sweet potatoes, butternut squash, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts for supper and having some baked pears for dessert!
- Slow-Cooked Dishes
During the chilly fall months, we always use our slow cooker to create some amazing dishes that take hardly any effort. It’s so nice going to work knowing that you’ll have a warm and delicious supper ready for you when you get home!
- Football Season
Nothing makes us feel more like fall is here than when the NFL season starts. Inviting friends over on Sundays to watch the game is a great way to socialize this season. We always make a big batch of our Vegetarian Chili to serve as a post-game supper. Whether your team wins or looses, at least you’ll have a tasty meal to look forward to! During the game, we’re always whipping up healthy snacks like our Super Seedy Hemp-O Crackers to dip into hummus or guacamole because even though it’s game day, it doesn’t mean clean eating has to go out the window.
- Planning our Halloween Costumes
As soon as fall starts it seems like Halloween is just around the corner. Since it’s one of our favourite holidays, we always start brainstorming costume ideas as soon as possible. Plus making your Halloween costume is a super fun DIY project. Maybe this year we’ll go as a giant bag of Hemp Hearts!
- Cool Morning Walks
There’s something so nice about going for a walk in the morning and feeling the crisp fall air on your face. It’s just what we need to wake up and feel energized to tackle even the busiest day!
- Sipping Hot Tea
After we get back from our cool morning walks and in the evenings while we’re curled up reading a good book, we always sip on some hot tea. Although we enjoy fruity summer teas, the spicy and warm flavours of fall teas are definitely our favourites. We love filling our cups with teas like pumpkin chai, apple pie, and of course the traditional earl grey.
- Crunching the Leaves
This is one thing we did when we were kids that still never gets old. When we see those dry leaves lying on the ground we can’t help but step on them and hear that familiar crunching sound. It’s one of the ways we know that fall is here to stay. Plus crunching the leaves may also turn into raking them and that’s one heck of a workout – no gym required!
- Going for Hay Rides
There are tons of fall activities that are fun, but going for hayrides has to be one of our all-time favourites. Hayrides are an inexpensive way to have some fun this season while spending time in the beautiful outdoors. We love getting a group of friends together, packing up some hot chocolate and going for a hayride!
We hope our list of favourites puts you in a fall mood! What are your favourite things about this awesome season?
