We can feel that autumn chill in the air, seeping through the window. Autumn is here.
Here are the top 10 favourite things about fall from PROFI:
1. SWEATER WEATHER
The perfect time to snuggle up in a warm sweater that looks great and is effortless. It’s easy, classic fashion. You can create different outfits with the same sweater, they go well with mom jeans, leggings, skirts, you name it!
2. APPLE PICKING
A great outdoor activity to do with family and friends! A perfect day-trip out of the city and into the fresh autumn air. Why go to the grocery store when you can go directly to the source and pick your own?! This just means more apple pies and apple cider for later.
3. APPLE DESSERTS
…Which leads us to another favourite, apple desserts! Who doesn’t love a good cup of warm apple cider with a dash of cinnamon? Let’s not forget that secret family recipe for grandma’s famous apple pies or apple crumble.
Check out our Apple Crumble Recipe. This recipe can be also used to fill an apple crumble pie.
4. PUMPKIN PATCHES
Pumpkin patches aren’t just for kids. It’s a great couples quick getaway or a fun day with the girls! Pumpkin patches are all about making memories and making traditions with family and friends alike. It’s a great place to take in the scenery and to get that perfect fall aesthetic photo.
5. AUTUMN STROLLS
We are so lucky to witness the beauty of Canada, especially watching the changing of colours during fall. Take the time to walk to your local park and conservation areas to take in all the beautiful fall foliage.
6. WARM DRINKS ARE BACK IN SEASON
We have had our fair share of smoothies (all year round), but in the fall, this is where lattes are in full swing! Grab your latte or cocoa, and cuddle up by the fire for the perfect autumn night.
Check out our Vanilla Chamomile Tea Latte Recipe. The perfect pairing to a good read.
7. COMFORT SOUP
Time to switch up that appetizer to include a cup of hearty soup to warm yourself up.
Check out our Butternut Squash Soup Recipe, perfect addition to your Thanksgiving menu.
8. LISTENING TO THE RAIN
Fall doesn’t promise sunny days, so it’s nice to take the time to lie in bed and listen to the soothing sound of rain running down your bedroom windows. It’s these small things that make you appreciate our surroundings.
9. NATURAL FALL DECOR
Natural decor that is compostable is both beautiful and sustainable. They give off natural beauty without causing excessive waste with plastic home decor. Pick up different sizes of pumpkins and squashes from your local pumpkin patch. Take a walk outside and pick up fallen branches and flowers that will spice up your living space and to bring the beauty of fall indoors.
10. FOR THE LOVE OF ROOT VEGGIES
Canadian thanksgiving means it is harvest time! Lots of root vegetables that are versatile, delicious and nutritious. Make soup, curries, and casseroles with your parsnips, sweet potatoes, onions, beets to just name a few.
