Healthy fall food #5: Sweet potatoes

They contain Vitamin A and iron, but you should try to roast them instead of boiling them to maintain their properties intact.

 

 

Healthy fall food #4: Chestnuts

Nuts are really great for your body, and since chestnuts contain fiber and Vitamin B6, it will help your bodies’ immune system and make your skin look beautiful.

 

 

Healthy fall food #3: Kale

Kale contains Vitamin K which provides proteins for your bones, allowing them to restore themselves easily; and beta-carotene, an anti-oxidant which helps your immune system keep healthy and fight cancer.

 

 

Healthy fall food #2: Pumpkin

Pumpkins are not only good for carving and decorating the house on Halloween. They also contain Vitamin A, C, E, iron, fiber and potassium. Since they contain about 10% more than the recommended amount of the latter, don’t overeat it, but definitely have a bite here and there.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away! Apples contain antioxidants, calcium, Vitamin C, folic acid and fiber, making it one of the healthiest foods of the season.
