Fall Couch Potato Health Hacks
In the midst of the change in season, it’s easy to ditch your healthy summer lifestyle for cozy options come cooler temperatures. Fall brings your favorite TV series and your sports team back on the big screen, which provides many opportunities for you to become a couch potato. That’s why we’re providing you with our “Fall Couch Potato Health Hacks,” to give you some healthy options, recipes and motivation to keep your healthy habits going all year long.
Tailgates and football parties are a fun fall activity that is a favorite in Michigan. Your first instinct when attending your friend’s football viewing party may be, “I’m going to bring chips and dip!” Instead, opt for a healthy alternative that won’t weigh you down:
- Pomegranate Guacamole
- Skinny Spinach-Artichoke Dip
- Spicy Pumpkin Hummus
- Buffalo Chicken Dip
- Spicy Red Pepper and Walnut Dip
- Healthy Nachos
- Green Bean Fries
Our cardio, lower body, core and upper body workouts give you something to do during commercials instead of flipping through channels. While you’re watching your next TV show, get off the couch and keep your body moving with these exercises. Even better, do yoga with one of our favorite instructors by watching this video: Yoga for Couch Potatoes.
