When crisp cool air sets in it’s time to start shifting your meal plan to the comforting and delicious foods of autumn. Pumpkins and apples might come to mind when you think of seasonal fall foods but the list of produce at the peak of freshness in October is very long. Get your oven ready for roasting because this is the time for Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, mushrooms, sweet potatoes, and broccoli, just to name a few. When it comes to fruit, oranges, figs, cranberries, and grapes top the list in October. Some might argue that October is one of the best months for seasonal fruit and veggies.
Regional and seasonal foods not only taste better, but they are also more cost-effective. Local varieties of root vegetables like beets, parsnips, and sweet potatoes are readily available in stores and they’re loaded with antioxidants. The added nutrients make you feel full and satisfied without excess calories. Stone fruits such as plums and peaches are in season until the end of October. The high level of anthocyanins in these fruits help boost your immune system and fight off illness. It’s time to celebrate the flavors of autumn with classic recipes from Clearly including cranberry and butternut squash quinoa salad and pumpkin soup. https://clearlybrand.com/dietitians-corner
Pumpkin centric recipes are a theme this time of year. From lattes to bread and soup to casseroles, pumpkin becomes a staple ingredient in October. The beautiful thing about pumpkin is its versatility and its nutritional value. Pumpkin offers vitamin C, vitamin A and potassium which have multiple heart health benefits and the ability to help lower blood pressure.
Easy and delicious ways to add pumpkin to your diet is by adding roasted pumpkin chunks to veggie dishes or casseroles. Pumpkin seeds also go great atop salad, yogurt and smoothie bowls. Desserts flavored with pumpkin aren’t necessarily the best way to add nutrients to your meal plan. However, using pumpkin purée as a substitute for butter or oil in baked goods is a great way to incorporate vegetables to smoothies or sweet breads.
One of the many joys during the Fall season is carving pumpkins. It’s always been a tradition in my home to cut open our large pumpkin and scoop out the seeds for roasting. Roasting pumpkin seeds is fun, easy and delicious. I like roasting my seeds at a high temperature for 7 to 8 minutes. This makes them crunchy and crisp.
Here is an easy recipe for roasted pumpkin seeds:
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Place pumpkin seeds in a colander in your sink. Rinse seeds and remove stringy pumpkin pieces. Pour seeds onto a rimmed pan and pat dry with a paper towel. Drizzle seeds with olive oil and sprinkle on desired amount of salt & pepper. Then toss to combine. Roast on 375 degrees for 7 minutes or until seeds are slightly brown and crisp. Other unique and flavorful spice combinations are garlic, cayenne pepper and salt or you can also make sweet roasted seeds by adding butter, sugar and cinnamon. Watch the Clearly Organic blog for unique recipes including roasted pumpkin seeds.
Cinnamon, maple, squash, apple and pumpkin…ohhh the sights and smells of Fall. When the sweaters and scarves come out we also start changing our meal habits and food choices. Fall often brings us back to soup, casseroles and warm pasta dishes. A common misconception is that these warm comfort foods have to be heavy on the calories and light on nutrients. Here are a few simple tips to make comfort foods healthier.
1. Make a cream sauce without heavy cream. Experiment with evaporated milk or use 2% milk instead.
2. Swap your noodles. Try whole wheat pasta for your spaghetti or in your macaroni and cheese.
3. Try new varieties of potatoes. Yukon gold potatoes work great for creamy mashed potatoes without all the butter. Also try chicken stock verses butter for extra creamy and smooth mashed potatoes.
4. Choose lean meat. Instead of ground beef use grass fed free range meat.
