Autumn is the season of comfort food, feasts, and an indulgence or two… but it’s also a great time to load up on fresh, healthy produce. Need ideas on how to prepare those yams, apples, leeks, and other lovely finds? Start here!
If there’s a season made for cooking (and feasting!) it’s fall. We all have our favorites — and as a nutritionist, mine are dishes that feature autumn’s array of healthy produce.
Cooking with fruits and vegetables that are in season not only provides us with better-tasting produce, but also these foods often contain higher levels of nutrients.
What’s more — buying local and seasonal food is both better for our environment, and can help to support sustainable agriculture and the local food economy.
To get into the fall season, try your hand at one of the five fall recipes that I created for Healthline using nutritious and delicious seasonal produce.
The recipes feature some of my favorite fall finds from the farmers market: yams, apples, pumpkin, broccoli, leeks, and squash! To check them out and get cooking click HERE!
