From Lorna Jane

I love the change in seasons – and for me Autumn means layering up my activewear with cute vests and jackets, and switching out shorts for longer length tights. As the weather starts to get cooler I relish in the opportunity to add a new dimension to my active looks with light layers and jackets. When it comes to food and nourishing my body, I really like to keep it seasonal and now that Fall is here, I’m looking forward to cooking up a storm with some amazing autumn produce from the farmers market.

Vegetables: 

On the veggie side, the entire cruciferous family is on my shopping list! Packed with vitamin C and fiber, plus nourishing phyto-chemicals that stimulate liver detoxification, they also contain anticancer properties – so, what’s not to love?!

Sweet Potato

Pumpkin

Squash

Rhubarb

Beetroot

Brussels Sprouts

Cabbage

Parsnips

Cauliflower

Kale

Fennel

Fruit: 

Fall fruits like cranberries and pomegranate are some of my favorites and they’re packed with nutrients and antioxidants that slow aging and give you a glowing complexion. Kiwis and grapefruit are also a really good source of Vitamin C so perfect to keep you healthy through the flu season!

Apple

Persimmon

Pears

Cranberries

Pomegranate

Dates

Tangerines

Figs

Quince

Kiwi

Grapefruit

I’m also looking forward to firing up my slow cooker and loading it up with lots of delicious vegetables, garlic and spices like turmeric and cinnamon. For a yummy fall dinner full of complex carbohydrates, try making my Stuffed Sweet Potato recipe. And if, like me, you’re a big believer in dessert, this Sweet Potato, Date & Pecan Pie is the ultimate!
