I used to joke about how as soon as October hit, I basically gave up on nutrition until my New Year resolutions came around. With so many holidays, parties, celebrations and family gatherings, it’s a tough time of year to keep things clean in the eating department. Unfortunately, that little joke was all too much a reality, and I would gain the dreaded winter weight every single year.
Are you stuck in a similar cycle? It’s time to create new habits and still enjoy the fall season without losing track of our nutrition! EAS AdvantEDGE is here to help you #WorkForIt, with ready-to-drink shakes that you can enjoy not only for their nutritional value, but also for their taste (the chocolate fudge? AMAZING). We’ve partnered to bring you fall nutrition tips that will help you survive the season without falling into that same old cycle.
Fall Nutrition Tips
Keep It Simple
One of the most common mistakes, in my opinion, is trying to get too creative and too ambitious when it comes to healthy eating. You don’t have to get a thousand expensive ingredients to make those matcha-pumpkin-cacao-almond butter muffins or drink a 36-ingredient superfood smoothie for breakfast every day. Especially when there are so many tempting treats around us this time of year, it’s best to stick to simple, easy snacks and treats that we can easily grab and go when we get a craving. That’s why I love EAS AdvantEDGE. The shakes are already made for me – all I have to do is shake, remove the cap and enjoy, and I immediately get my sweet fix with a healthy dose of protein.
Put a Healthy Spin On It
Love pumpkin spice? Can’t live without sugar cookies? Whatever it is, I promise that there is a healthier way to make it. It may not taste exactly the same, but it will still hit the spot and you’ll feel better about your choices! Blend together pumpkin puree, banana, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice and a creamy vanilla AdvantEDGE shake for an amazing seasonal smoothie that’s packed with good-for-you ingredients. Create your favorite flavors using healthier ingredients to keep from grabbing the sugar-saturated treats.
Work It Out
Busy? Yup. Too busy to work out? Never! Your workouts should still be a priority this time of year, even when things start to get crazy. It’s a fact that if you work out, you’re more likely to make healthy eating choices, too. It all ties together. Plus, your workout just might land you a prize pack from EAS AdvantEDGE.

If you know you’re going to be at a party or holiday dinner, go in with a game plan. Never arrive super hungry, when all you can think about is how badly you want that syrupy sweet potato casserole and how you will annihilate anyone in your path to get it. That won’t end well for anyone. Sip on EAS AdvantEDGE 20-30 minutes before you arrive. It’s packed with 15 grams of protein, which is the most satiating macronutrient, so you’ll feel full and happy. If you know what’s going to be served, plan what foods will fit into your plan and which to skip. I.e., grab a big serving of the roasted veggies, pass on the buttery mashed potatoes.
Do Your Homework
Do you know how many calories are in that gingerbread latte? How about that green bean casserole? The numbers can be shocking… but most people never realize just how shocking they can be. Do your homework on those foods that you often see this time of year and decide if it’s worth the splurge or if you’d rather enjoy something else. Once you know the facts, you can make an informed decision! For example, EAS AdvantEDGE ready-to-drink shakes are only 100 calories, have 15 grams of protein, and only 5 grams of carbs. Worth it? Oh yes.
