Coach Sarah's Fall Favorites

by Sarah
Not only are the seasons changing, but so are some of my favorite things! Here are a few things that I look forward to during the next few months.

Scented Candles

I have always had a thing for scented candles, especially during Fall! The light glow of a candle has always been something that helps calm me when I am stressed. One of my favorite candles that I have is an apple pumpkin scent. Who wouldn’t want to curl up on the couch with a cup of apple cider (sugar free) and watch a movie with a candle burning?!

Brisk Walks in Brisk Weather

I love walking when it’s not so hot outside that you feel like you’re melting! Fall weather is the perfect time to take a brisk walk or hike in the brisk weather. Lightly bundle up and get outside for a walk!

Seasonal Vegetables -- Squash

Squash is one of my favorite produce items for Fall. Check out this easy recipe for acorn squash; I'm sure it will be a hit in your household!


  • 1 acorn squash
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup of water
  • Walnut pieces (optional)


  1. Cut squash in half and discard the seeds.
  2. Add 1/2 - 3/4 cup water to a 9x13 inch baking dish. Put squash cut side down into the water. (This is the secret step that keeps the squash from drying out while cooking!)
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. If adding walnut pieces, turn squash over at 45 minutes, add walnuts to squash, and allow pieces to bake for 5-7 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of brown sugar on each half. Enjoy!

Be Well,
