Fall is such a fun time of year when we get to enjoy all the rich flavors of harvested fruits, vegetables, and spices. The health benefiting nutrients from many of these foods may surprise you. For example:
- Pumpkin — High in vitamins and minerals, and it’s surprisingly low in calories. It’s a great source of beta-carotene that your body converts into Vitamin A
- Cranberries — These are often called a “superfood” because of their high antioxidant and nutrient values.
- Tomatoes – They contain the powerful antioxidant lycopene; they’re also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate, and vitamin K.
- Apples – High in pectin fiber, apples can help the body regulate its own metabolism, blood sugar, cholesterol and weight managment.*
- Grapes – Contains the polyphenol resveratrol, a key antioxidant; also contain quercetin, lutein, ellagic acid, beta-carotene and vitamin c.
- Carrots – Eye and cholesterol friendly, carrots contain beta carotene, fiber, Vitamin K1, potassium and antioxidants.
