Ahh September. Those days of pool-side lounging and rosé-drinking have sadly come to an end (at least for a little while; spring break is just around the corner!). We usually think of post-holiday slump in January as the time for a good detox, but those post–Labor Day feelings of overindulgence are also very real. We have a tendency to go full steam in those last few weeks of summer, especially with all the big vacations and backyard parties on the books.
The shift in seasons is another great time to take stock of your lifestyle habits and goals, especially in the months before the holiday season descends. Even if you're not in actual "back-to-school" mode, September feels like the start of a new year—and what better way to jump start your goals than with a healthy eating overhaul? It's not hard to get your habits back on track, especially if you have some good kitchen gear and handy recipes to get you inspired. A powerful blender or time-saving prep gadget can make a world of difference when you're trying out a new eating plan (it definitely makes it more fun!).
