Autumn is the perfect season to indulge in comforting foods and simultaneously boost your immune function.
And what could be a more perfect choice than incorporating superfoods into your diet?
Pumpkins & Squash
Pumpkins offer more than just carving fun! They are rich in beta-carotene, vitamin C, and fiber, making them a nutritional powerhouse. Don't forget about my absolute favorite fall snack: Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dip. You don't want to miss out on this! It's also the season for an abundance of squash varieties, including butternut and acorn squash - same nutritional value!
Apples & Pears
These fruits, in addition to being rich in vitamin C and fiber, have a lower glycemic index compared to sweeter fruits like bananas or grapes. This makes them an excellent choice for those seeking a healthier, low sugar option.
Kale & Greens
Autumn presents a wonderful opportunity to gather an abundance of nutrient-packed kale and other dark green leafy vegetables. Bursting with vitamin K, vitamin C, and beta-carotene, these vibrant greens offer a delightful combination of health benefits and delicious flavors.
Turmeric & Ginger
When the air turns chilly, I love to indulge in the comforting warmth of these spices rich in antioxidants. They are perfect for enhancing the flavors of soups, stir-fries, and even lattes!
Are you planning to give any of these superfoods a try this Fall?
