Think of the new season as a fresh start to your healthy habits. That means it’s the season of sweaters, 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 too.
#2 Pumpkins – Pumpkins are fun to carve but they also have a lot of healthy benefits too. Pumpkin seeds are delicious but 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 comes packed with nutrients, fiber and disease-fighting plant chemicals.
# 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 wonderful health benefits too. 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 and eat locally grown, fresh and seasonal foods is the key to getting the best flavor for your food as well as the best health benefits.
