8 Fall Activities In Los Angeles That Won’t Hurt Your Fitness Goals

The Halloween decorations are coming out, pumpkin-spice everything is all the rage, and that can only mean one thing: fall is officially here! The cooler weather comes with its fair share of sweets and goodies, though, which isn’t always conducive to living a healthier lifestyle. 

But you don’t have to sacrifice your favorite parts of autumn just because you’re watching your weight or working on a fitness goal! There are plenty of ways that you can enjoy your favorite season without sacrificing your healthy habits. Here are 8 of the best fall activities in Los Angeles that will ensure that you’re staying on track. 

  1. Apple picking 

There are truly no other activities as synonymous with fall as apple picking. Grab your family, dress up in your coziest clothes and hit your closest apple farm! You’ll be moving around but will be having so much fun that you won’t even notice that you’re doing physical work to get those apples gathered.

And while many people are quick to turn them into candied apples, apple pie, and rich apple donuts, there are plenty of healthier ideas you can use your apples. Consider baking them with cinnamon, turning them into apple sauce, or baking them in oat muffins for breakfast. 

  1. Take up baking – the healthier way. 

Speaking of apples … 

We really start craving those sugary-sweet treats once the weather starts getting a little chillier. Luckily, there are several ways that you can make your baking experience a little more calorie-friendly. For example:

  • Consider using fresh fruit like apples and pumpkins, rather than the processed and preserved options (see: suggestion 1!) 
  • Use fresh apple sauce instead of oil and sugar for extra sweetness without the fat 
  • Replace sour cream with Greek yogurt to preserve moistness with more protein 
  1. Hit up your favorite hiking trails.

Fall is a wonderful time to take your workouts outdoors and go outside, especially in Los Angeles. The weather is a little cooler but not cold enough to make your trek uncomfortable, the trails are a little less busy, and you really get to appreciate that crisp autumn air and stunning foliage that make October and November so special. 

For the best fall views, consider taking a drive out to Big Bear so you can witness the magnificent changing of the leaves and enjoy some much-needed time in nature, unplugged. 

  1. Visit your local farmer’s market. 

It isn’t just apple and pumpkin season! Fall is harvest time for a ton of healthy fare including sweet potatoes, butternut squash, brussels sprouts, and Swiss chard – and that’s just to name a few! And there’s no better place to get those autumnal goodies than your local farmer’s market. Enjoy walking around and filling up on your fridge basics while supporting small businesses. 

  1. Embrace soup season in all of its glory. 

If you’ve been getting tired of the endless salads this summer, we’ve got good news for you: the colder weather and in-season plant-based goodies means that fall is the perfect time to switch to over to healthy, comforting soups. You can easily make your own healthy soups featuring pumpkin, onion, butternut squash, tomatoes, potatoes … yum! 

  1. Explore a haunted house. 

If you’re looking for a way to get your heart racing without having to run miles to do it, a trip to your closest haunted house will probably fit the bill. There are a ton of options in LA, from Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios to Knott’s “Scary” Farm. 

Whether you’re being chased around by ghouls in a haunted house or dodging murderous villains in an endless corn maze, you’ll get a good workout and get that little adrenaline rush that makes Halloween so wickedly fun. 

  1. Take up a cozy hobby. 

Spooky season is also cozy season, so now is a great time to slow down and explore some of those crafty hobbies you’ve been meaning to get into for months now. For example, candle making, macrame art, knitting, and painting are all fun endeavors that will keep your hands and mind busy and get your house nice and comfy – and as an added bonus, those new skills could come in handy come gift-giving season in December! 

  1. Carve a jack-o-lantern. 

Another quintessential fall activity that’s perfect for you and the kids. Whip out your carving tools and a little bit of imagination to get your house looking Halloween-ready just in time for the trick-or-treaters. Don’t forget to save those guts: roasted pumpkin seeds are a great snack to munch on throughout the rest of the week!
