Fall season offers a treat for your taste buds as a huge selection of seasonal vegetables and fruits fill up the stores. What’s more, a little bit of food indulgence is just what you need to beat the fall doldrums and pep up your spirits.
Treat yourself to the deep, dark colored juicy fruits and vegetables rich in nutrients and phytochemicals that will not just delight your senses but will also build your health and prepare you for winter.
Here’s a list of some of the best fall foods:
Eggplant and zucchini on their own are healthy, nutritious vegetables, inexpensive and versatile and can be used to prepare many mouth watering dishes, separately or together.
Eggplant and zucchini make a lovely duo with their distinctive coloring of purple and green and to my knowledge, the best way to eat eggplant is by frying or grilling it; although zucchini can be eaten raw or in a salad. The number of dishes that can be made using eggplant and zucchini are numerous. Eggplant is such a versatile vegetable that it can be cooked in many different ways. Whenever eggplant is in season, you can make it a point to bring some home in order to make a very traditional recipe which all my family loves.
Health Benefits Of Tomatoes – Taste and nutrition as well as the health benefits of tomatoes have been highly valued. Enjoyed all over the world, they are essential ingredients in the diets of many cultures. Yet the plant has a spotty past, including myths, misconceptions and controversy, and the challenges of modern mass production of the tomato continue to spark debate. Yet there is no debate over the intrinsic health benefits of the tomato. The tomato is treasured for its nutritional value as much as for its delicious taste.
Our culture is so concerned with convenience and comfort that we take foods like the tomato for granted. One classic example: we’ve failed in teaching our children the importance of eating fresh tomatoes every day.
