Fall Wellness Check-Up

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 16, 2014) - Terra Wellington, Wellness and Lifestyle Contributor, shares tips for a fall wellness check-up.

Fall is an exciting season, but it can be filled with comfort foods which often have added fat and calories. Be sure to look at the labels when you're at the grocery store. One all-natural snack which is non-GMO, fat free, and 100 percent whole grain is the Wasa Light Rye Crispbread. It has the Non-GMO Project Verified seal, which means it doesn't have genetically modified ingredients. A tasty pairing is with Mozzarella, Tomato, and Arugula. Or replace your bread for an open-faced "sandwich with a crunch" as you get your whole grains.

With Halloween and the holidays coming up, candy and junk food are always around. Avoid these temptations by keeping healthy snacks at the ready. A great example is Dole's New No Sugar Added Fruit Bowls. They are packed in water and sweetened with monk fruit concentrate -- no artificial sweeteners. Available in peaches and mandarin oranges, it's a guilt-free way to satisfy your sweet tooth. Since its grab-and-go, you can even throw it in your purse with no refrigeration, plus each cup is just 40 calories or less.

Convenience is a necessity this season. An easy feel-good-program to look for this fall is the Walgreens and Vitamin Angels program -- which is helping children in the U.S. and internationally. This is how it works, when you're at Walgreens buying your health and wellness supplements, a portion of all vitamin sale proceeds are automatically going to children who need life-changing vitamin A. Together, the goal is to reach 100 million children worldwide by 2017.

Fall is a great time to focus on indoor air quality and the overall health of your home, especially since more than 60 million Americans suffer from asthma and allergies. Fortunately, Stanley Steemer's professional carpet cleaning service can help reduce common household allergens found in your carpet. They are the first carpet cleaning service to earn the asthma and allergy friendly™ certification for professional carpet cleaning by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. Stanley Steemer carpet cleaning removes up to 94 percent of common household allergens like dust, pollen, and pet dander from your carpet.
