Who doesn't love a hoodie? You can bundle up in one at home, use it as an extra layer during an outdoor workout, or cover up in one after leaving a yoga class. With so many practical uses, hoodies are perfect for Fall; let's be real, you can never have — or give! — too many of them!

Time change putting a damper on your evening workouts? If the darkness is only good at motivating you home to your cozy couch, you'll want to think about switching your workouts to the brighter mornings. Here are some ways to prep for morning workouts the night before.
- Skip the morning scavenger hunt: Don't give up on the morning run because you can't find your sock or sneaker or sports bra. Prepping the night before only takes a few minutes, and helps avoid wasted time frantically searching for the essentials. Do a load of laundry if you need to, and then lay out your outfit so when you wake up, you can slip it on and go.
- Gear up: Also get any gear you need ready. Charge your iPod, put your yoga mat or iPhone armband by the door, put your fave fitness video in the DVD player, and lay your dumbbells next to the TV.
- Munch: Since working out on an empty stomach isn't great for your metabolism or your energy levels, premake a little morning snack and keep it in the fridge so you can quickly grab it to nosh on while getting ready. Half a slice of whole-wheat toast with peanut butter, apple slices with cheese, and ingredients for a small smoothie are the perfect pre-workout snack.
- Early to bed: Be sure to hit the hay early so you're well rested, and set your alarm to wake up to your favorite peppy song. If you tend to hit the snooze button way too many times, try putting your alarm clock on the other side of the room.
- Pencil it in: Text or call a friend to set up a fitness date. If you decide on a time to meet in the a.m., you'll feel obligated to go, even if your mind and body tell you otherwise.
- Get psyched! Check the schedule at your gym or studio, and choose an exciting and inspirational class to look forward to. A 6 a.m. Zumba class with your favorite instructor or sunrise yoga in a heated studio are sure to pull you out of bed. Or if music moves you, create a new workout playlist to motivate.
- Post-workout treat: Plan a special breakfast to eat after your workout as a reward for your efforts. You'll get through your workout a little faster knowing there's a hot cup of coffee and homemade oatmeal pumpkin spice bread waiting for you at home.

Saddlebags, muffin tops, tummy tires, and arm jiggle — if you're not a fan of yours, then fiber is a must. In order to slim down those areas of extra fluff, you need to decrease your overall body fat, which means cutting calories. Eating fiberlicious foods at every meal and for snacks fills you up to prevent cravings and hunger pangs, so you eat fewer daily calories, which helps you drop pounds. As an added bonus, getting enough fiber — 25 to 30 grams a day — also keeps your belly happy and reduces your risk of breast cancer and type 2 diabetes.
Your mom was onto something when she told you to eat your peas — these vegetables are one of the highest sources of fiber. Check out the chart below to see what other veggies offer the most hunger-satiating fiber.
|1/2 cup||Calories||Fiber in Grams|
|Artichoke (1 medium)||64||10.3|
|Asparagus (10 spears)||33||3|
|Avocado (1/4 fruit)||80||3.4|
|Bell peppers (green)||15||1.3|
|Bell peppers (red)||19||1.6|
|Bell peppers (yellow)||18||0.7|
|Olives (0.5 oz.)||25||0|

Brussels sprouts are one of our favorite veggies to serve up for Thanksgiving, even though there are often one or two nasayers at the table. This recipe from Karma Chow pairs the bitter brussels sprout with the sweetness of maple syrup and saltiness of tamari, making for complex flavors. It's bound to make more than a few brussels sprout converts. And it's vegan!
If you're vegan, lactose-intolerant, or just a general health nut, chances are you've had a fair share of almond milk. If you're a serious juice freak, raw foodie, or gourmand, then you definitely drink the fresh, homemade stuff. Comparing store-bought almond milk to the fresh stuff just isn't fair — raw almond milk will always win. But it gets even better with one simple tweak.
When Can Can Cleanse unrolled its new Fall line, the hazelnut almond milk is what drew me in. It gives classic almond milk an intriguing twist by spicing it up with metabolism-boosting nutmeg and the sweetness of hazelnuts. What you're left with is a rich and creamy drink that is great on its own and even better when used in a smoothie, poured over oatmeal, or stirred into coffee. Beyond adding a new flavor profile to almond milk, hazelnuts are rich in monounsaturated fats (shown to help decrease belly fat!), B vitamins, and protein.
