Loaded sweet potatoes sound like the ultimate, indulgent comfort food. Usually piled high with ingredients like sour cream, bacon, and cheese, they may taste good, but it’s better for our health to have a clean version.

Why eat seasonal produce? When you eat seasonal food you absorb more vital nutrients from the soil it has grown in. Locally grown food has more flavor, because it was picked when ripe. Try buying your acorn squash from a local farmers market and see if you can taste the difference. This is perfect fall food, especially if you are looking to eat less meat or meat-free!
