The Best Autumn Super Foods

There is no need to tell you that a healthy diet is crucial in order to protect yourself from disease, stress and exhaustion. The best strategy to take up in order to make sure that you eat balanced meals that are good for you are to go for food that is seasonal. And since autumn has already arrived, it is logical enough to go for the foods that are available this time of year, like:

  • Sweet-potatoesSweet potatoes. Ignore the fact that they actually have nothing to do with potatoes per se, because they are, technically speaking, storage roots. No one can deny though that they are tasty, and that they are rich in vitamin C and other nutritious elements that can only do good to you, like beta-carotene. Actually, sweet potatoes are so rich in beta-carotene that in order to consume the same amount that you will get from one ration of sweet potatoes, you will have to eat 23 ration of broccoli.
  • Pumpkins are traditionally associated with the season, but do far more good than simply serving as great Halloween decoration. Beta-carotene, anti-oxidants, Vitamin C and much more are in abundance in pumpkins making them one of the best and tastiest super-foods you can possibly hope for in autumn.
  • Apples are tasty and healthy. Should we remind you of the old saying that an apple a day keeps the doctor away? They are very rich in anti-oxidants, and more precisely in flavonoids, which are the best of their kind. In addition to simply chewing on an apple between meals, or serving it as a desert, you can always mix it with a variety of dishes. Apples go particularly well with chicken recipes.
  • Figs are not something we are used to consuming, but they are tasty and have all those good things that make a super-food… well, super. What is more, if you put 200g of figs together with some 100 milliliters of water in the blender, you will make a fig puree which would be perfect for both a sweetener and a fat-substitute in all baked goods you can think of.
  • Turpins and Swedes are a good alternative to their cousin – the broccoli in those cases when the latter is off-season or you are just tired of it. They are particularly good when boiled or roasted. Rich in fibers and vitamin C, both turnips and Swedes are the key to a balanced diet in autumn.

Have in mind that those are just a few crucial examples. There are many more good foods that you can count on in autumn. Remember, the proper diet is crucial for the functioning of your organism, and will help you recover from excessive stress and strain much better, so we particularly recommend it in cases when you have just finished a man and van removal of your home or office. You are going to thank us later, when you realize that it is tasty too!
