Women’s Boots That Are Fashionable Yet Comfy

I always look forward to boot season! I just LOVE a cute sweater paired with jeans and an awesome pair of boots. However, I have struggled to find boots that are supportive, look good on my feet/wide calves and that I can spend a whole day in without foot pain. Enter Aetrex women’s boots! I love all the attention to detail, not just in how they look, but in how they fit and feel on your feet. I’m going to share some of my favorite styles with you this Autumn.

The Kara Ankle Riding Boot

The Kara is a top winter and fall ankle boot with a comfortable stretch sweater design and functional side buckles for adjustability. This boot helps to align your knees, hips and back with built in Lynco® orthotic support while customizing to your foot with slow recovery memory foam cushioning. It keeps your feet odor free and prevents bacteria growth with anti-microbial technology and has soft fabric linings for comfort. I also love the side zipper, heel tab and side buckles for adjustability and ease of putting on and taking off. Most importantly, there is a removable foot bed so you can use these shoes with your Aetrex orthotics as well!

Chelsea Tall Riding Boot

Riding boots are a must-have for cooler weather, and the Chelsea combines fashion and comfort in an effortless style. I love how the sweater design in the back of the boot accommodates wider calves and provides a comfortable, unique look! This boot helps to align your knees, hips and back with built in Lynco® orthotic support while customizing to your foot with slow recovery memory foam cushioning. These also have a removable foot bed so you can use these shoes with your Aetrex orthotics as well!

Tessa Short Sweater Boot

The Tessa is a snug ankle boot with flexible sweater material that accommodates your movements to maximize comfort. The side-zip provides easy on/off wear making it great for casual Fall days. Featuring the Aetrex “Healthy 3” – Lynco Arch Support, Memory Foam Cushioning and Anti-microbial technology to keep your feet healthy and comfortable. I love that these are lightweight because of the cork/EVA midsole, making them good for a long day on your feet. The soft tumbled leather uppers not only look luxurious, but feel so soft, and look great without squeezing your feet.

Sweet Potato…Fall’s Perfect Food!

As the weather starts to cool off for fall, it’s important to start preparing your body for the change in seasons by changing what you’re eating. Eating locally isn’t only beneficial for our local farmers and our environment, it also encourages us to eat seasonally appropriate foods. When the weather gets cooler, our bodies crave warm, nourishing comfort foods to help us transition.

In addition to being the perfect fall food, sweet potatoes have some great health benefits as well. Not to mention, they can be enjoyed in such a great variety of ways as either main courses or side dishes.

Fiber: Sweet potatoes are a great source of dietary fiber. A serving contains almost 7 grams of fiber!

Vitamin A/Beta-Carotene: Vitamin A is a great natural anti-oxidant and just one sweet potato contains almost your entire daily recommended serving! Vitamin A is said to help in prevention of cancer as well as protecting your skin from the sun (from the inside out).

Vitamin C & E: Vitamin C & E are important antioxidants for disease prevention. They also support health hair and skin. Look good, feel good!

Heart Health: Sweet potatoes are rich in vitamin B6 as well as potassium, which help blood flow freely and help to lower blood pressure.

There are so many great ways to enjoy sweet potatoes…baked, sweet potato fries, in a stew or soup, even sweet potato tater tots!

Amazing Health Benefits of Pumpkin!!!

One of my favorite things about Fall is the arrival of pumpkin EVERYTHING season! I love the cool weather combined with warming, nourishing and not to mention delicious pumpkin! Eating seasonally is a great way to prepare your body for the change in weather.

Pumpkins also have many great health benefits, including:

-Pumpkin is an antioxidant/anti inflammatory food so it supports joint health, organ health, stress relief and some injuries.

-Pumpkins are high in vitamin C and zinc so they help boost your immunity.

-Pumpkins are high in vitamin A so they help protect your eyes from cataracts and degeneration.

-Pumpkins are high in magnesium which is great for bone and tooth health.

-Pumpkins contain L tryptophan which can help naturally fight depression.

So this fall, enjoy some pumpkin! Add it to your chili, your smoothies, your oatmeal, pie and more!
