Summer has faded into fall—and that means it's time to watch out for those big Thanksgiving meals and winter eating binges.
As the conventional wisdom goes, summer is when you show off a six-pack and fall is when you drink a six-pack—usually while watching football—and gain 10 pounds of blubber. (Go ahead, tell yourself it’ll keep you warm in the winter.)
But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can preserve the current, fitter you by taking advantage of these recipes made with the season’s freshest, healthiest fare, including pumpkin, squash, cinnamon, and apples, to help you stay lean and energized. Keep these on your menu and next spring you may just wind up with the same body you had last summer—no time machine necessary.
Here are five healthy meals to help you through the fall.
