Summer has sadly coming to an end, and for those like myself that are students it means going back to school and studying our butts off for exams. It’s time to embrace the stunning changes that come along with autumn. Soon we’ll see leaves evolve into magnificent colors, feel the wind get chillier, and enjoy Halloween decorations left and right!

Although we have to say goodbye to summer, we get to welcome and appreciate the beautiful changes that come along with autumn. As we all know, change can be a very scary thing. We can either embrace the change and grow from it, or run and hide…I prefer the former! This blog post will focus on how we can use healthy foods to comfort any nervous feelings that result from the idea of change.
