Summer produce season is long gone (boooooo) but the fall is ushering in some tasty fruits and veggies that can help keep you healthy and thriving, and maybe even pass on that cold that’s about to go around. (when isn’t it?)

To get the full scoop, we liked this handy seasonality chart from CUESA, since we’re in Northern California, but if you’re not a neighbor of ours, you can use Epicurious’ Peak Season Map (which is really cool) – it lets you pick where you are the the month you’re in, since every region differs.

We’ve picked a few of our faves below that are generally available in the fall, along with a couple of simple recipes that can help you incorporate them into meals and snacks. Happy munching! Continue reading

September is upon us and the push for healthier lunches is prevalent, from the school lunch line to the workplace cafeteria. Why? Because more and more, we are realizing that the contents of our food matters – from hidden sugar to food additives, and even how it affects our mood.

While a popular opinion is that there is a pre-determined range of calories one should aim to fuel their bodies with and use to manage their weight, this opinion is controversial. With this approach, our complex bodies have been reduced down to sheer math regarding nutrition, reasoning that “calories in, are calories out.” When it comes to optimal health – metabolic, cardiovascular, liver, kidney, bone, and blood –  this couldn’t be further from the truth.

The quality of your food matters.

When it comes to re-imagining your lunches (or any meal, really) for the benefit of your health and wellbeing, a big change can be overwhelming. Large adjustments have the potential to be difficult to adopt all at once – but small changes can lead to healthy habits over time that are sustainable.

Lunch: A few small changes you can make

We talk quite a bit about vitamins because of the important role they play in keeping your body healthy and functioning – from immune system and muscle function, to heart and blood health, and even eye health. When it comes to getting your essential vitamins – eating or supplementing – it’s helpful to understand how your body absorbs them best, so that you get the most bang for your buck when you’re chowing on that broccoli (vitamin c) or forking those scrambled eggs (vitamin d).
