Our Favorite Things: Healthy Fall Foods Edition

Here are our top five favorite fall foods:

Squash Unlike summer squash, winter squash has a fine texture and a slightly sweet flavor. It tastes best with other fall flavors like cinnamon and ginger. It contains omega-3 fatty acids and is an excellent source of Vitamin A.

 

Pumpkin Another type of winter squash, pumpkin is good for more than just carving jack-o-lanterns. It’s sweetness and moist texture makes it the perfect ingredient for pies, cakes and pudding. It’s rich in potassium, B vitamins and it provides more than 20% of daily recommended intake of fiber.

 

Parsnips These veggies may resemble carrots, but they have a lighter, nuttier flavor perfect for soups and sauces. They’re rich in potassium and are a great source of fiber.

Apples Whether you enjoy it raw or baked, sweet or tart, apples are a super satisfying treat for Fall. Make sure to eat the skin for heart-healthy flavonoids. They’re full of antioxidants and contain 4 grams of fiber per serving.

 

Sweet Potatoes These tubers are more nutritionally dense than their white counterparts, and if you roast them rather than boil them not only will they taste delicious, they may retain more vitamins. They’re an excellent source of vitamin A, iron, and possess anti-inflammatory benefits.
