Fall Inspirations & The Importance Of Eating Seasonal Foods <3

November 2, 2013 by Living Girl Living Foods

I’ve been asked by many clients recently about what the heck is in season during the fall. We all know sweet potatoes, pumpkins, potatoes, squash, apples, and carrots but there are oodles more goodies out there for us! Today I’m going to share a list of fruits and vegetables that are in season and try to give a few recipes, links to previous recipes using them or a little nudge of inspiration.

Hopefully in the next week or so I can add more recipes to the list! I will be adding a link to the achieve search for the ingredients I have used before or have shared information on, so please feel free to click on any of the fruits or vegetables that you are curious about. I am happy to say most of these items I have done a post on <3!

Here are some other foods that are in season during the Fall:

Artichokes

Arugula

Beets

Broccoli Rabe (I have some in the fridge so this should be coming your way soon)

Broccoli

Brussel Sprouts

Cabbage

Celeriac/Celery Root

Celery

Chard

Cauliflower

Figs

Fennel

Garlic

Grapes (early Fall)

Kale

Kohlrabi (I somehow keep missing this being available at the Farmer’s Market or store so I can’t make any promises :-X sorry)

Pomegranate

Leeks

Lettuce

Lime

Mushrooms

Onion

Parsnips

Turnips

Radish

Spinach

Peppers

Shallots

Persimmons

Pears

And I am sure there are tons more out there that I’m not thinking of off the top of my head right now but here are some main ones we can all enjoy and play with in the kitchen 😀

Seasonal foods taste delicious and provide us with the nutrients we need to deal with the present moment. Many of these Fall foods can aid in staying grounding, assisting with staying warm, reflective, healthy, feeding our blood, bones and brain. These foods help with coping with the change of weather and all of the other ways Fall ends up making our routine different.

Foods that are not in season will not taste great, recipes using them may possibly not taste as delicious or major tweaking must be done to balance it out. Even the color of the fruit/vegetable, texture, smell, or so forth may not look right. Since the item is not in season the nutritional value arguably is lacking compared to when the food is in season.

I have a few recipe ideas I would like to share with all of you, just the main ingredients and some images so we can all get inspired. Inspiration can be the most powerful way to make changes including eating foods in season.

I will be posting a Broccoli Rabe recipe post soon and have been asked to share some more tonic recipes. I have a remix of a Green Pina Colada Smoothie that I change up here and there that I think would be a wonderful share too. Lots of yummy treats to share with everyone. I hope you all have a wonderful November with lots of adventures, magic, delicious foods, health and happiness. Thank you all for taking the time to stop by my site! Here is a photo my sister-in-law snapped of me today while we were playing with my nephew.
