Fall is here and that means it's time to switch up the smoothie game a bit by using warming spices like cinnamon, cardamon, turmeric, black pepper, cayenne and ginger. Use these spices to season your food and tea as well to promote a healthy, warming glow throughout the body.
Although weather is getting cooler, try to spend time outdoors. Dress properly, wear warming colors like red and copper and enjoy long walks taking in the light.
When the weather gets too dreary to leave the house practice yoga, stretching and dancing indoors.
