As we mentioned in one of our previous blog posts there are a ton of benefits to eating seasonally and allowing your foods to change as the seasons do.
Our bodies actually gravitate towards eating seasonally whether we actually consciously know we are doing it or not. There's a reason we crave lighter foods like salads and smoothies in the warm summer months and opt for heartier warming foods during the fall and winter, it's because it is our bodies preferred way of eating to support it's nutrient needs during each season.
Fall is one of the best times of the year for local and fresh produce, there is an assortment of fruits and vegetables, from crisp local apples to all types of squash, the harvest is inspiring when it comes to getting in the kitchen.
