Fall Fruits & Vegetables

Sara K. Larsen - Friday, September 12, 2014

The arrival of this beautiful fall weather is a great reminder of the importance of eating healthy with the seasons. The changing of the seasons provides us the opportunity to buy a variety of fantastic foods that are only available during that season. Not only does seasonal food taste better it’s also healthier. When produce is grown in its proper season it exhibits all of its natural nutrients and packs the biggest nutritional punch. 

As you choose the best foods of the season, remember that the healthiest and most enjoyable diet involves diversity. Here are a few foods that are in season right now:
  • Squash
  • Broccoli
  • Pears
  • Apples
  • Pumpkin
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Swiss chard
  • Turnips
  • Cauliflower
  • Cranberries
  • Hearts of Palm
  • Grapes
