So what’s in season?  Here’s a list of some of the goods for fall….and a few tips to boot!  These will be some of our new staples:)  Look for them at your local farm stand, health food store or supermarket. 
Apples – try to buy organic to avoid pesticides
Arugula – rich in phytonutrients, antioxidents, folate, vitamin A and K…. a powerhouse
Beets – these are a superfood…good source of fiber, folate and potassium. They have 50 TIMES more antioxident activity than orange carrots!
Broccoli – sweeter when harvested in the fall
Brussel Sprouts – last longer if you buy them on the stalk and contain more vitamin C than an orange
Cauliflower- rich in vitamin C and phytonutrients
Garlic – at its sweetest and plumpest late summer and fall
Grapefruit – loaded with vitamin C, lycopene and antioxidents
Grapes – buy organic and go for the red, purple or black ones… they have the most health benefits
Herbs – parsley, rosemary, sage, thyme – all freshest in fall! Load up on these babies…they have many health benefits:)
Kale – as with other cooking greens, it’s sweetest in the fall.  It’s high in beta-carotene and has more vitamin K than any other     green…superstar
Mushrooms  - delicious and sooo good for the brain!
Parsnips – look for the thinner ones! They have a nutty flavor and are rich in potassium and fiber.
Pears – certain varieties…delicious when cooked
Pumpkins – rich in potassium and B vitamins
Radishes – daikon
Sweet potatoes – love, love, love…loaded with beta carotene, vitamin A and iron
Winter Squash – all varieties….acorn, butternut, spaghetti. They contain omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin A.
What new foods are you looking forward to experimenting with this fall?
