Healthy Foods for Fall that the Whole Family Will Love

Healthy Foods for Fall that the Whole Family Will Love

So long summer and all of your delicious bounty (yes, we’re looking at you, watermelon). It’s harvest time! Here are healthy foods that celebrate all that autumn has to offer.

1. Think apples. Apple picking is one of the top activities for fall. But what are you going to do with all those apples? Try incorporating them into easy, healthy dinners. Here are some ideas:

2. Dive into squash and gourds. So many squashes, so little time. What floats your boat: butternut, acorn, spaghetti, pumpkin? We suggest trying them all!

3. Get ready for root veggies. Root vegetables—carrots, turnips, beets, radishes, and so forth—offer a wide variety of tastes and textures, meaning you’re bound to find at least a few that the whole family will love, especially when you experiment with how to prepare these healthy, tasty veggies.

4. Pick pears. Pears are a great snack “as is.” But given that their harvest season is August through February, now’s a great time to use this fruit as part of your main meal plans. Here are some ideas:

5. Broccoli and cauliflower. Cruciferous veggies are some of the healthiest foods you can eat, and these two are abundant right now.

Do you have any fall favorites? We’d love to hear about them! Share your ideas/recipes in the comments.
