Buy produce that is in season to save money and enjoy the flavors of fall! Here’s your produce guide to help you make the most of this season!
Healthy produce such as apples, broccoli, sweet potatoes, cranberries, and coconuts are a great way to bring interesting variety to your families dinner table. Good nutrition is essential to a strong immune system, which offers protection from seasonal illness such as the flu and other health problems including arthritis, allergies, abnormal cell development and cancers. Help protect yourself against infection and boost your immunity by including these and other nutritious foods in your eating plan.
Maintaining good dietary habits can make a difference in how you feel and your general health. While you can’t prevent all illnesses, taking a proactive approach to proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle can strengthen your immune system, reduce stress, promote better sleep, prevent injury, alleviate depression, and improve energy levels.
