Fall Flavors Are a Treat!

By Donna Stark

September is finally here which means so are your fall favorites! From all the sports you love to watch to all the festivities you can't wait to attend, this colorful season has so much to offer! But the best thing about the fall is the variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables you get to eat. Take a peek at a few of them below to learn about all the health benefits they can provide. 

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are truly a jack-of-all-trades. In addition to being delicious and extremely versatile to cook with, they also offer a seemingly endless list of health benefits. For starters, sweet potatoes are a great source of Vitamin A and beta-carotene, which are crucial for normal vision and a healthy immune system. Sweet potatoes are also a low glycemic food which means they will release sugars into the bloodstream at a slower speed, and they are packed with other minerals, such as magnesium and potassium that can aid in all areas of the body, even heart health! So, the next time you're considering cooking for a tasty and healthy recipe, look to include your new favorite starch. 


Is it really fall if you don't have everything flavored with pumpkin? From pumpkin pie to pumpkin coffee to pumpkin cake to even pumpkin candles, it is easy to see who is the star of the season! But what many people don't know is how beneficial pumpkin is to your health. Pumpkins are rich in Vitamin A and have a high antioxidant content which can help protect your cells from being damaged! Pumpkin also has a high content of Vitamin C as well which can help immune cells work more efficiently and heal you faster! Perhaps the best part about pumpkins is how easy they are to include in your diet. Pumpkins can work in both savory and sweet dishes, and you can even eat the seeds!


Apples are a fall staple, and for good reason too. One of the most important benefits apples have to offer is that they can help aid in digestion and control your blood sugar. This diabetes-friendly fruit will easily become one of your favorite fall staples because of its amazing taste and versatility. So go ahead and enjoy all the fresh apples you can pick!

You most likely have already been enjoying some of the flavors of fall, but if not, just head to your local store or farmers market. It's time to start taking advantage of all the health benefits that this season's produce has to offer.
