Seasonal Fall Produce

I Heart Oils Seasonal Fall Produce

Since we follow a plant based diet at our house, I like to make sure I'm incorporating seasonal produce into our menu plan. It is usually fresher and less expensive than out of season produce and it adds to the variety of our dishes. And don't certain foods just signal the change of seasons for you? Hearty baked squashes like butternut and acorn taste like autumn to me. 

Below are lists of fruits and vegetables that are in season during the fall months. Check out that list of vegetables. Fall is a treasure trove of veggie goodness! Whether you pick them up at a supermarket or a farmer's market, try to include as many as you can in your menu. Of course, these days most produce can be purchased all year long due to modern farming and distribution techniques. But keep in mind that when you buy produce in season it will be at its best.

  • Apples

If you are looking for something delicious to do with your seasonal produce, try one of our Fall Soups with Essential Oils. The Roasted Butternut Squash Soup is so simple and the flavor is enhanced with Cardamom and Cinnamon Bark Essential Oils. Or for a healthy, immune boosting snack, try soaking sliced apples or pears in water with a drop of On Guard Protective Blend for 15 minutes*. The flavor reminds me of apple pie.
