I love cooking any time of year. Using seasonal fruits and veggies creates even more flavorful recipes. You are able to find many of them at your local farmer's market and when found in the grocery store they will most likely be discounted due to them being in abundance at that time.

I know, I know, you're wondering just where the pumpkin is on my list. Well, while that one is a given these are a few you might not think of immediately when heading to the store.

Sweet Potato

This tuber has great health benefits. Not only are they high in vitamin A, but they're a good source of B6 and potassium too. Vitamin B6 is an essential to metabolism, immunity and blood circulation. Potassium can assist with regulating blood pressure as well.

One way to enjoy sweet potatoes is to make roasted sweet potato wedges. Cut the potatoes into wedges and roast them. You can enjoy them sweet or savory. For the savory version just toss them with a little cumin, garlic powder, paprika and chili powder. If sweet is on the menu just top them with a cinnamon, stevia and then drizzle with low sugar maple syrup before baking.



Cauliflower

Hooray for this crunchy, cruciferous veggie is loaded with vitamin C, potassium and also has a decent source of Omega 3 fatty acids. Vitamin C will not only help fight off those winter colds coming our way but it will assist your body with absorbing iron as well. Omega 3’s help to decrease inflammation withn your body and can lower your risk of heart disease.

Change up your basic mashed white potato by using mashed cauliflower. Use fresh diced garlic, plant based milk and a small amount of heart healthy olive oil instead of heavy cream and butter to make this dish creamy, healthier and satisfying.


I could name off so many more, but I"m using some awesome restraint on this one. You'll have to search through the recipes to find more autumn meal ideas

Spaghetti Squash

Looking for a great replacement for those “zoodles” you’ve been using to replace carb laden pasta with? Well look no further. Spaghetti squash is here to save the day. Loaded with beta carotene, antioxidants and more potassium, it’s here to improve your immunity and digestion with it’s high fiber contesnt too.


Not sure how to prepare this gourd. Well it’s super simple. Check out my blog post dedicated entirely to how to cook it.



Apples

It’s true, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Well partially. This fall favorite is not only tasty but has many helaht benefits for you. While loaded with antioxidants it has also been known to help with lowering your bad cholesterol (LDL). The skin is full of prebiotics to maintain proper gut bacteria and ensure that your probiotics are working.

You can enjoy apples in way more than Grandma’s apple pie at Thanksgiving. Why not make a healthy grab and go breakfast by using my favorite apple muffin recipe





Brussel Sprouts

Forget what you always thought as a kid that you DON’T like this vegetable. Cooked the right way you will come to love these and crave them year round. Brussels are low in calories but high in heart and gut healthy fiber. The main vitamin they are loaded with is Vitamin K. Just 1 half cup of them supplies over your recommended daily intake of Vitamin K and it’s used in your body to increase bone health, which we all need especially as we get older and it is good for blood clotting too. Vitamin C and B6 as well as iron are found here too. Let’s include the good amount of fiber they contain and this little baby cabbage is now one heck of a power packed veggie.


Slicing them in half and roasting them until slightly crispy is one fan favorite way of cooking them. Add herbs and seasoning to your liking and your taste buds will enjoy them just as much as your body does.
