Fall Fruits & Vegetables to Add to Your Grocery Cart + 24 Recipes to Make With Them


The start of fall means brisk air, falling leaves, cozy sweaters, and seasonal foods. We all know now is the time to indulge in all things pumpkin and sweet potato, but do you know about all of the other yummy foods in season during the fall? Eating according to the different seasons is one of the principles of Ayurveda, one of the world’s oldest approaches to healing and health. When we eat the fruits and vegetables that are in season, we are not only getting the best flavors, but the most nutrients too. As our bodies are in-tune with nature, we need different foods when the weather gets colder. We tend to be naturally drawn to more comforting and nourishing foods such as soups, stews, and warm root vegetables. Plus, trying to eat more with what’s in season is a great time to experiment and cook with different foods you normally wouldn’t eat!

Today on The Everygirl, we are sharing all of the foods in season in the fall and 24 recipes — from breakfast to dinner — to try!
