Recipe of the Day or a
Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day

Fall weight loss tips may take a little more work, than summer weight loss tips. The farmer's markets are winding down, but still loaded with the end of summer produce, and many new root veggies.

The days are getting shorter, and the dark is coming earlier, making it more difficult to get out. Enjoying the great outdoors, after work for that hike, walk, or bike ride, takes a little more planning!
