6 Foods in Season this Autumn

In every season, it's best to eat the foods that are in season. Fall is no exception, and while plenty of people go pumpkin-crazy (especially in the form of lattes), there's so much more to the autumn harvest.

Choosing the right seasonal fall foods helps you get the nutrients your body needs, plus you'll start on track with healthy options that taste great and make you feel great. So, what should you stock up on this fall to enjoy your meals?

1. Winter Squash

Perhaps the best treat of fall is spaghetti squash. The texture is so much like pasta you won't believe it. Making it is simple, too. You slice it in half lengthwise, scoop out the seeds, drizzle with olive oil, and bake it until it's just tender. It comes right with a fork and serves as a healthier base for those soothing saucy creations of Italian origin. It's also prime for roasting or making into soups.

2. Apples and Pears

Both apples and pears have fiber and loads of vitamins. They taste sweet and juicy and have low calories. For snacks or even for baking in the oven, they create a healthy dessert alternative that creates all the cozy flavors you love about this season.

3. Cauliflower

Is there anything cauliflower can't do? You can mash it like potatoes, turn it into pizza crust or breadsticks, make it into rice, and so much more. You won't miss your high-carb foods when you replace them with nourishing and cruciferous cauliflower this fall!
