As we move deeper into fall, the seasonal variety of our food changes. Here are the top 10 clean fruits and vegetables to include in your diet this autumn.

root-vegetable-Recovered

Incorporating mineral-rich root vegetables into our daily menus helps us feel grounded during the colder months, especially if you are doing the Clean Program. Juice carrots and beets with medicinal roots such as ginger and turmeric or make baked parsnip “fries” for a savory snack.

cabbage-small

Shred it for a slaw, lightly sautée in a stir fry, or use it to make a batch of gut-friendly sauerkraut. Cabbage is high in fiber and rich in Vitamin C and K which may help reduce the risk of heart disease.

pomegranate

These fruits are held sacred in many cultures for good reason – they are rich in cancer-fighting antioxidants. They are naturally anti-inflammatory and can help reduce joint pain and the risk of heart disease.

brussels

These health-boosting cruciferous veggies that every kid loves to hate can be made deliciously edible by coating in olive oil and roasting at 450 degrees for 20 minutes or until slightly caramelized. Brussels sprouts are rich in fiber, protein, iron, and potassium.

persimmon

Rich in fiber, antioxidants, and mineral, these nutrient-dense fruits are best eaten when they are fully ripened (like a tomato) and sweet.

squash

Nutrient-dense, low-calorie, fiber-rich, and filling – squash is the perfect addition to your  autumnal eating pattern. Most squashes are easy to peel, chop, and roast or steam for a meal or side. Butternut squash makes an excellent treat when doing the 7-Day Program.

sweetpotato

These fibrous tubers are rich in nutrients and antioxidants that give your skin and eyes a healthy glow. They are high in potassium which can help regulate muscle cramps and headaches. Make a mash with coconut oil and cinnamon to make a satisfying snack to avoid sugar cravings.

cauliflower

Containing a cancer-fighting sulfur compound, this cruciferous vegetable works synergistically with curcumin (found in turmeric) to prevent and treat certain cancers. Add cauliflower to your next curry or roast whole for a cauliflower “steak” dinner.

kale

This nutrient-dense leafy green deserves all the buzz it gets. It's rich in beautifying Vitamin A and C to help you get a youthful glow. Add some leafs to your next Daily Shake to reap the benefits.

apples

An apple a day is still a good idea for maintaining proper health, just make sure it’s organic! Apples contain fiber and pectin to keep you regular, energetic, and healthy.
