Five ways to eat healthily this autumn

Autumn has arrived. The days are shorter and the temperature is colder, but this doesn’t mean that your health should suffer! Whilst refreshing salads may now be less appealing, there are still plenty of healthy and tasty food to eat this autumn!

Here are five ways to eat healthily starting today:

  • Embrace the food that is currently in season, and for Autumn this means you should be eating parsnips, pumpkins (make sure to save one for Halloween though!), sweet potatoes, figs and apples, to name a few.
  • Autumn means earthy, deep colours, such as hearty yellow, green, orange and red. The more colours you can eat the better for your overall health, so fall in love with the vibrant colours of the changing of the seasons.
  • The way you cook your food in the autumn should be at a low heat for a longer time, so look at baking casseroles, hearty pies and healthy soups to keep you warm as the days get colder.
  • Cranberries are abundant in the autumn, they are low in calories and full of antioxidants. They’ll help to treat gum disease and stomach ulcers, and can be bought freshly throughout autumn!
  • British apples are at their peak in the autumn, so support your local produce and use apples in a variety of ways. They can be sautéed, baked and even juiced so stay healthy by getting some of your five a day from a British apple or two.

The autumn season presents us with some great culinary options, so make sure to eat the food that is in season as it will be not only be tastier but also cheaper than the alternatives. You’ll get extra flavour, crunch and texture in all your dishes, as well as nutrients that come with fresh produce which will keep you healthy and warm this autumn!
