Four Foods For Fall (Repeat that 4x Fast)…

Think of the new season as a fresh start to your healthy habits. That means it’s the season of sweaters and uggs, Halloween and turkeys, breathtaking fall colors and fantastic foods to choose from.

Eating fresh foods this Fall is the key to making this season your best one yet.

So here are four fall foods to fill up your grocery basket not your waistline.

#1 Apples – They are so delicious and can be used for a variety of recipes. But that is not even scratching the surface on the benefits apples have to our overall health. We have all heard the famous saying “An Apple a day keeps the doctor away” and there is some truth to this! Apples are so high in antioxidants, fiber, and vitamin C. They enhance brain health, reduce risk in diabetes, stroke, and heart disease as well.

#2 Pumpkins – Pumpkins are fun to carve, but they also have a lot of healthy benefits when consumed. Pumpkin seeds are delicious and also contain very good quality “fat”, zinc, and enriched vitamins and minerals. Pumpkin seeds also reduces inflammation which reduces risk of auto immune diseases.

#3 Brussel Sprouts – These are my personal favorite I eat them everyday. Brussels sprouts are an incredibly nutritious vegetable that come packed with fiber, disease-fighting plant chemicals, and folate.

# 4 Acorn Squash – I would say this is the vegetable best representing the Fall Season. It tastes delicious, makes the house smell even better, and has positive effects to the body. 1 cup of acorn squash has over 30% of the daily recommended amount for vitamin C. It also is enriched with vitamin B6 and E.

Embrace the beauty of the fall foliage and the fall foods this season. Eat locally grown, fresh and seasonal foods to get the best flavor for your food as well as the best health benefits.
