With cooler weather and fewer daylight hours, many people may begin craving comfort foods or staying indoors more.

Even with Covid-19, a few moments in the sunshine is good for your mental and physical health. Taking the family outside is one of the easiest things to do.

But be sure to avoid large gatherings, wear facial coverings and maintain good hygiene.

Here are a few tips from Live Well San Diego to consider when staying healthy this fall:

  • Plan activities that don’t involve eating.
  • Eat a light lunch like a salad with olive oil dressing, that way you can go big with special events.
  • Homemade food from scratch is challenging but you can control fat, sodium and sugar contents better.
  • When in doubt, stick to veggies!

Making sure you use fresh affordable foods, like seasonal fruits and vegetables will keep your family healthy and smiling.
