Autumn is here and so is the harvest and all the wonderful fruits and veggies that come into season before the first frost. Now is the best time to take advantage of the amazing variety of produce available that can often be found locally grown and supplied. We’ve complied a list of healthy, hearty, heart warming fall foods that you can try this season. Some of them may be old favorites and some may be brand new to your dinner table, but all are certain to please.

Pumpkin is a classic vegetable for Fall, and has been appropriated in countless ways for the masses- especially “pumpkin spice.” Now, most of what makes up pumpkin spice is cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and allspice (which is easy enough to add to your coffee in the morning without a trip to Starbucks), but when it’s combined with pumpkin puree and baked into pumpkin pie, the results can be amazing. If pumpkin pie isn’t your thing, why not try making pumpkin and carrot soup? It’ll warm you up on those chilly Autumn nights, and it’s amazingly good for you.
