Cooler weather doesn’t have to mean we give up eating fresh fruits and vegetables. Autumn has officially ushered in a whole new crop of fresh foods that are so nutritious, they‘ll go head-to-head with summer’s heirloom tomatoes and organic berries. Here, a few insider recommendations that should inspire healthy fall eating.
While pomegranate juice is famous for its antioxidants, enjoying it in aril-form adds fiber – 3 grams per half cup, to be exact– making it an even better choice.
Brussel sprouts contain glucosinates, compounds that may help fight cancer and trigger your body to release detoxifying enzymes. Sprouts can be delicious simply roasted and salted.
Sweet potatoes - your body converts the beta-carotene in sweet potatoes into vitamin A, making it a top source of the nutrient – a medium sweet potato has about 500% of immunity-boosting, skin-protecting vitamin A.
