Get Ready for the Changing Leaves, and Changing Menus, of Autumn
Fall, especially October, is filled with the sights, smells and tastes of pumpkin everything, from the iconic Pumpkin Spice Latte to fluffy pumpkin pancakes to hearty pumpkin soups and just about every pumpkin-infused food and beverage in between. Although pumpkin has become the signature fall favorite for many, there are many other great fall flavors to try, allowing you to not only enjoy the changing season and changing leaves this month, but to also change up your menus to celebrate all that October brings.
Fall is known for its harvest of healthy and delicious fruits and vegetables, and there are a lot of benefits for eating them when they are in season. Fruits and vegetables consumed during proper seasons are known for being more nutrient-dense than out-of-season produce. Plus, just-picked, ripe seasonal produce is known for having richer flavors, too.
