FALLing In Love With Fall

FALLing In Love With Fall

The picture perfect cozy season we all know and love

Alex Geerts

Everyone has a favorite season, or maybe you like every season. Winter is cold, but Christmas falls in winter and there is always a perfect opportunity to sit in front of the fire. In spring you have the switch back to warmer weather, along with flowers blooming. Summer is hot, most people tend to enjoy this after an extremely cold winter. There is also no school in summer, for those who are still in school, so it is very liked for that reason as well. Personally, my favorite season is fall, and here's why...

Fall in Indiana is absolutely beautiful with all of its pretty colors, sunshine, and leaves falling. It's the perfect opportunity for cute pictures because there is a lot less green atmosphere and a lot more reds, yellows, oranges, and browns surrounding us. Another great thing about this season is the absolutely perfect weather.... SWEATER WEATHER! The cozy and cute long sleeve tops that we all find ourselves in when it gets chilly. This is the prime time for style; ripped jeans, boots, layers, and so many more great outfits come together. Not only is fall a season for great fashion, but also a season that allows us gals to wear makeup without sweating it off within 5 minutes of being outside.

We can't forget all of the amazing food we get to eat this time of year. Firstly, pumpkin spice season. There is pumpkin spice coffee and baked goods all over the place just calling our names, irresistible, am I right? We can also enjoy soup, my personal favorite, along with many other hot foods that makes us feel all warm and toasty. Next we have apples, they're everywhere. Great for picking- which is a cute family activity or date idea- but also great for hot or cold cider. Other great comfort foods for this chilly time of year include mac n cheese, pie, mashed potatoes, pot roast, pumpkin bread, rise n rolls, and more.

Lastly, we have all of the fun activities to do with friends or use as date ideas. There are so many fun things to do, especially outside because you won't get too hot or too cold. Haunted houses and scary movies are a perfect way to have fun during spooky season, creating fear but also giving us lots of laughter and things to remember. Bonfires are a fun late night activity perfect for any fall night, roasting s'mores and talking by the fire is a good way for bonding. Finding a fall festival in your area or a corn maze to get lost in with your loved ones and work together to find the way out. As we all know, this is football season too. Even if you don't understand or don't like football, it's always something fun to just go out and do with friends and family, give it a try... you may end up liking it.

Whether fall is your favorite season or your least favorite season, here are some positive things about it along with some ideas of activities to do!

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
