3 Delicious Recipes That Will Boost Your Metabolism

One of the main principles of our Tone It Up Nutrition Plan is eating lean, clean, and green. This means dining on whole, unprocessed foods, and this way of eating has some major body-loving benefits. One of the best perks: a faster metabolism! Three (totally natural!) compounds help rev your metabolism: protein, capsaicin, and caffeine. Each one affects your body in a different way to give you more energy and help you reach your fit goals! Check out our three fave recipes using these powerhouse, metabolism-boosting compounds.


Vanilla Latte

Your daily cup of coffee can actually boost your metabolism. Caffeine has been known to give you that extra buzz in the morning and help with mobilizing fatty acids in your bod to use for energy. Lattes from grab ’n’ go places can get really sugary really fast, which offsets the positive perks of caffeine. Try our clean Vanilla Latte version HERE, instead! It uses dates for an added hint of sweetness. Dates are high in fiber, so they give you sustained energy and prevent that afternoon crash.

Banana Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

Protein requires a li’l extra work to break down in your bod, which means your body has to burn extra calories just to use it. Hello, faster metabolism! That’s why we always suggest having protein at every meal. Not only does it boost your metabolism, but it also increases your satiety level, which helps keep you from reaching for those chocolatey snacks! Try our Banana Peanut Butter Overnight Oats recipe HERE. It uses our organic, plant-based Perfect Fit Protein, so you know you’re getting the good stuff!

Spicy Cauliflower Wings

We love cauliflower because it’s so versatile and pairs well with essentially any flavor combo. We baked it with capsaicin-rich chili powder and cayenne. Capsaicin increases your body’s internal temperature, which means your energy system pathways are burning extra calories! Pair this dish with some sriracha or hot sauce and you’ll get even MORE perks. Grab the recipe HERE.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
