Slimming Foods for the Fall

Eating seasonally is a growing trend across the U.S. It helps to eliminate the environmental damage caused by shipping across continents and your dollars goes directly to the farmer. Plus, eating fresh, unprocessed vegetables and fruits has many health (and flavor) benefits over eating foods that are canned, bottled or boxed.

Autumn is almost here and to help you eat seasonally we’ve put together this list of seasonal foods that you can integrate into your meal plan. These foods are healthy, packed with nutrients and will help keep you on track with your weight loss goals through the end of the year.

Oh, and we’ve linked to some great healthy recipes to help you work these foods into the menu!
