Today, we’re going to give you a head start on your healthy fall cooking, with some recipes that are sure to be a big hit in your kitchen.

The Secrets To Healthy Fall Eating

So, what’s the secret to preparing delicious-but-healthy meals in Autumn? According to Good Housekeeping, it all relies heavily on a liberal use of seasonal vegetables, which can pack even the coziest comfort foods with a good dose of nutrition:

“There's no better time to load up on fresh produce like apples, squash, beets, Brussels sprouts, cranberries, kale, pumpkin, and potatoes during the harvest season when they're at their peak. Using in-season fruits and veggies brings out the best flavors in these easy dinner and lunch ideas.”

And on that front, there are a few specific recipes you’re going to want to try to make use of these so called “seasonal superfoods,” like stuffed acorn squash. The squash itself is plentiful with vitamins like A and C. Beyond that, though, a hollowed-out squash makes for an excellent container in which you can pack other nutritious ingredients, like brown rice, peppers, onions, and lean meats.

If you find yourself in the mood for soup instead, you can try out options like the lemon-dill/chicken meatball soup. This combination gets you plenty of dietary fiber, and those chunks of chicken will provide an ample serving of protein to keep you energized.

Maybe you want to start eating more salads now that Fall has rolled around? In that case, it will be hard to top options like the kale and roasted cauliflower salad, which, as the name suggests, contains plentiful portions of both ingredients. You can remix this however you like with other healthy ingredients, gaining a bounty of nutrition in the process.

And of course, there are plenty more recipes you can try out this Autumn, just remember to pack in those healthy vegetables to ensure you’re getting everything you need from your diet.
