3 Fall Foods You Should Eat Right Now

In honor of Women’s Health and Fitness Day, we’ve rounded up three seasonal superfoods to stuff in your grocery cart STAT!

Fall Food

Crisp autumn leaves and cozy cashmere sweaters – just the thought of fall has us feeling warm and fuzzy inside! But fabulous foliage and indoor comforts aren’t our only cravings this season. We’re also hankering for the nutrient-packed produce which happens to be in abundance during fall’s harvest. Whether you’re partial to pumpkin pie, or prefer to keep warm with a cup of hot apple cider, these three fall foods are sure to keep you healthy and energized throughout everyone’s favorite time of year.

1.      Apples

It’s an adage as old as time, but an apple a day can really keep the doctor away. With four grams of fiber per serving and full of antioxidants, feasting on fall’s apples is a sure way to boost your body’s nutritional intake. Whether you throw an apple in your purse or throw on an apron to bake yourself a pie, be sure to eat the apple skin – it’s full of healthy flavonoids. And don’t forget about this fruit’s high pectin content – it could lower your odds of contracting cardiovascular disease.

Here are some $50 Spa Week treatments that tap into the nutritional benefits of apples:

  • Warm Apple Cider Body Polishing with Body Mask at @Ease Spa in Hillside, NJ
  • Honey Cider Hydration Massage at U-topia Spa in Naples, FL
  • Spiced Cider Facial at Salon Nardos in Washington, DC

2.      Pumpkins

Nothing says fall flavor like a vitamin A-rich pumpkin. The phytosterols in pumpkins can help combat high cholesterol and this gourd’s supply of beta-carotene will fend off free radicals. So don’t just carve this autumn accessory – eat it, too!

These $50 Spa Week treatments are the perfect pumpkin fix:

3.     Cranberries

We’re all familiar with the cranberry sauce holiday staple, but fresh cranberries, available in the fall, are a superfood that deserve some recognition. Rich in vitamin C and fiber, cranberries are only outranked by blueberries in their antioxidant capacity. One cup of cranberries can contain 8,983 antioxidants, so stock up!

Pack on the perks of cranberries with these $50 Spa Week treatments:

Workout Wednesday: Doonya Abs, Arms + Legs

This Workout Wednesday we experienced Doonya – a Bollywood-inspired fitness class that boasts a seriously tantalizing playlist!

Doonya

Last Workout Wednesday we sampled Doonya Abs at New York Health & Racquet Club’s Fall Fitness Preview, and we were immediately obsessed with the fast-paced, Bollywood-inspired workout class. So when we had the chance to test out the entire sweat session this week, how could we say no?

Doonya is quickly taking the fitness world by storm, large in part because it is a workout unlike any other. Incorporating Bollywood-inspired music and dance, Doonya targets your abs, arms and legs – burning an impressive 800 calories per class!

While dance classes aren’t our typical go-to, there are several factors that made the Doonya experience an exception. For one, our instructor Priya radiated such confidence and positivity that it made it impossible not to let loose – literally! And, because the dance moves are inspired by rich Indian tradition, the steps and motions are far less cheesy than the ones you’re subjected to at Zumba.

And then there was the music. The Doonya playlist is at the heart of what makes this fitness class so special. From strong, powerful songs that inspire fierce squats, jumps and leg lifts; to graceful tracks that complement long, lengthening moves, it’s clear that the music and movements are carefully coordinated.

We were so mesmerized by the energizing and vibrant Doonya playlist that we had to add it to our arsenal, and of course we HAD to share it with you! Check it out below, and head over to doonya.com to book a class and find out what the buzz is all about!
