If you haven’t had sweet potatoes, you’re missing out! These spuds are delicious, nutritious, and in season. Replace your regular Yukon golds with some healthy sweet potatoes. Enjoy your burger with a tasty side of sweet potato fries or chips. These spuds are so sweet, they’re practically dessert. Try baking a nice sweet potato casserole. Be mindful of what you put in it though. After all, healthy foods are only as healthy as what you serve them with!
Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean winter squash can’t be in season! Squash is one of those foods that tastes just like what you cook it with. It takes on the flavors of the spices you cook it with, so it’s not too difficult to work within the kitchen. Bake it alongside your favorite veggies or try your hand at squash soup and even squash spaghetti noodles.
Last but not least, spinach. This tasty leaf makes a great salad. You can toss it in with arugula or any other leaf of your choice. Pick out your favorite dressing and toppings to make a great, nutrient-filled salad.
