As the air continues to chill and the leaves rapidly fall from the trees, I find it refreshing to visit the market and see the newly harvested in-season delicacies.

They offer a welcomed change to our menu options and nutritional boosts to prepare for the changing season.

So keep your eyes open for these 9 In Season Foods to Eat this Fall as you do your grocery shopping:

Swiss Chard // Swiss chard is rich in vitamins and packed with antioxidants. Don’t throw out the stems which equally contain tons of immune boosting nutrients.

Beets // Beets are a great source of energy, boost mental function and help cleanse the entire body. Trimming the stems before storing your beets will prevent the leaves from sucking the moisture from the roots.

Grapes // Grapes contain flavonoids and antioxidants great for skin health, immune wellness and overall healing and rejuvenation. Shop for organic grapes, as they are among the most heavily sprayed crops.

Apples // Apples offer such great variety while helping to balance blood sugar and alkalize the body. Store your apples in a cool place because they continue to ripen even after they’ve been picked.

Figs // Packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, figs can turn mushy quickly, so select figs that have strong stems and can still handle a bit a pressure.

Cranberries // Cranberries are loaded with antioxidants, nutrients and anti inflammatory properties. Be aware of additives in some cranberry products, which may lessen the natural nutritional benefits.

*Remember – eating local, seasonal food is a great way to enhance your nutritional intake. The food that’s available and the colors they offer, provide you with the nutrients and protection you need for the seasons of your particular region.
