The changing of the seasons can also be a great time to add small changes to your diet. One of our favorite parts of fall are the super foods that come along with the season. How can you integrate these foods into your daily diet? Below is an easy example of how to make your day just a bit more ‘super’
Pumpkins are high in vitamins A and C, which are vital to immune and skin health. They are also low in calories and are 94% water! These pancakes will give you the flavor of pumpkins while keeping you full until lunch.
This recipe involves not one, but TWO major fall superfoods – apple and kale. Kale has very high levels of vitamins A, C, and K while being a great source of calcium and iron. Apples are great for your heart and can help promote gut health. Add some cider vinaigrette and you’ve got yourself a tasty, healthy lunch!
Pears pack a hearty dose of fiber, vitamins, and plant compounds. On top of being nutritious, they also promote gut and heart health and can aid weight loss. A sprinkle of cinnamon can help bring out its flavor and makes for a tasty afternoon snack.
Butternut squash is high in potassium, which can help control your blood pressure. This recipe combines the superfood with roasted eggplant, carrots, mushrooms, kale, onions, and chickpeas over quinoa.
These cupcakes can be made with either sweet potatoes or pureed pumpkin. Sweet potatoes are high in fiber and antioxidants and can be a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth while still staying healthy!
