It’s so easy to get stuck in a cooking rut ( which I do towards the end of a season). That’s when spending a little extra time on meal prep can help add variety and inspiration to your dishes. Mixing it up is where it’s at when it comes to sticking to a healthy lifestyle. I especially like adding seasonal veggies and fruits to dishes.
Our bodies tend to crave what’s in season, which is why it makes sense to reach for the flavors of fall right now to help satisfy your appetite. Here’s a quick reference list of veggies and fruits to add to your shopping cart.
- Squash: Butternut and Acorn
- Brussel Sprouts
- Sweet Potato
This upcoming weekend when you have some downtime, take a half-hour and collect some ideas from Pinterest, Cooking Magazines, and even look through that stack of Cook Books you probably have high up in a cabinet somewhere. Re-inspire your meals for the next few weeks, and find yourself getting excited about cooking savory, wholesome dishes this month!
I’ve been playing around in the kitchen and have been creating some of my own autumn recipes, that I’ll be sharing with you throughout October! My Apple Protein Muffins will make a great addition to your grab and go mornings.
After apple picking at Sweetberry Farm this past month, my family collected a bushel of delicious apples to start incorporating into some delicious fall recipes. These low sugar muffins are also a wonderful snack and addition to school lunch boxes.
