Fall In Love With Fruits And Vegetables

The days are getting shorter. The weather is getting cooler. It’s officially sweater weather! And there’s nothing I crave more in the fall than a cozy house and delicious comfort food. When you crave something substantial and warm, there are so many options that are healthy and delicious, you’ll be inclined to skip ‘cheat day!'

Here are 5 fruits and vegetables to fall in love with this season, inspired by the delicious dishes of Savory Catering.


Did you know that there are more than 7,500 different types of apples? Apples are a long-standing autumn tradition and for good reason. They are sweet, crunchy, and packed with antioxidants, energy, fiber, minerals, and vitamins. Apples can be added to butter, cider, cookies, cobbler, dumplings, and so much more - the possibilities are endless! 


Nutritional powerhouse and fall superfood, sweet potatoes deserve more than just a side for your holiday turkey. Sweet potatoes are a wonderful source of potassium, magnesium, fiber, and Vitamin C & D - ingredients which are known to prevent aging, improve energy, and maintain the mood. You can enjoy sweet potatoes in everything from fries and chips to pancakes and dessert! 


If you’ve already decided you hate Brussels sprouts, it’s likely because sometime in your life their sweet and nutty flavor was boiled away. When you take the time to cook Brussels sprouts properly, they’re amazingly delicious and full of health benefits. From lowering the risk of cancer and cholesterol to keeping your bones healthy and promoting weight loss, you don’t want to go this season without Brussels sprouts in your dishes!


Ah pumpkin, our favorite winter squash! Squash along with its close cousin - the pumpkin - are autumn mainstays. Members of the squash family are high in beta carotene and dietary fiber which contributes to the health of your eyes, skin, and immune system. It’s also low in calories and used in a variety of dishes. Sprinkle with seasoning and oil for a flavorful snack, entree, or side dish. After it’s cooked, squash can also be added to bread, muffins, or soup! 


Turnips and other root veggies may not be the most fashionable vegetables of the season, but what they lack in beauty they make up for in flavor and nutrition. Research suggests that consuming turnips may reduce the risk of lung and prostate cancers. From sweet to peppery, turnips provide a wide range of flavor for your dishes based on size, type, and age. 

With striking shapes, splashy colors, and sturdy rinds, autumn is the perfect time to incorporate interesting fruits and vegetables into your favorite cold-weather dishes. Follow Savory Catering for more health, wellness, and lifestyle tips.
