9 Essential Fall Superfoods and How to Cook Them Slideshow

9 Essential Fall Superfoods and How to Cook Them Slideshow

Forget about pumpkin; check out these other fall foods

Apples

Apples embody autumn, but did you know that these crisp, sweet, colorful fruits might actually keep the doctor away? The apple’s balance of natural sugar and fiber gives it a low score on the glycemic index, a scale that tracks how quickly a food’s sugars are converted to glucose within the body. (Foods with lower glycemic index levels are less likely to spike blood sugar levels.) Apples are also versatile: They can be snacked on raw, baked, our sautéed, making them ideal candidates for pies, crisps, sauces, and strudels.

Brussels Sprouts

Children’s infamous disdain for Brussels sprouts has cast a shadow over this healthy fall superfood. A cup of this vegetable contains only 38 calories but provides an entire day’s worth of vitamin C. When they’re roasted in the oven or glazed with maple syrup, miso, and sesame seeds. , Brussels sprouts become a delectable side dish even your kids will enjoy.

Cauliflower

Cauliflower has become a popular ingredient replacement for recipes that call for potatoes or grains, and to turn into things like dirty "rice" and pizza crust. White cauliflower is the most popular, but there are several other varieties such as orange, green, and purple, each containing a slightly different nutrient makeup. White cauliflower contains a cornucopia of vitamins and minerals including folate, and vitamins B6, C, and K. It’s also being researched for its phytochemical compound, isothiocyanate, which has been linked to destroying certain cancer cells. However, to fully take advantage of cauliflower’s healthy properties, avoid boiling it — which kills a large proportion of the phytochemicals — and try steaming or roasting it instead.

Grapefruit

When you think of fall foods, grapefruit rarely comes to mind, but California grapefruit is at its peak quality in October. The nutritional benefits of grapefruit are immense, with one large fruit containing 120 percent of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C. Check out all of these recipes to see how you can incorporate more of this citrus superfood into your diet, but just be careful not to mix grapefruit with some prescription drugs.

Parsnips

Parsnips kind of taste like sweeter, earthier potatoes. Their long roots resemble carrots, and like the carrot they can be eaten raw, but the parsnip’s starch content makes it the perfect candidate for a purée or luscious soup. A cup of parsnips provides 29 percent of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C, 17 percent of the RDI of folate, and 24 percent of the RDI of manganese.

Pears

During fall, pears are often overshadowed by apples, but this seasonal fruit is high in dietary fiber, which, among other benefits, helps to alleviate constipation. Studies on animals have shown that pears may also be able to regulate alcohol metabolism and protect against ulcers. Pears work well in both sweet and savory dishes, and can be used raw in salads, atop soups, or in desserts like a classic poached pear. They also make tasty juices.

Pomegranates

The pomegranate is an underutilized ingredient in Western cuisine, but the fruit’s luscious seeds can add a sweet and crunchy bite to salads and soups. Pomegranate juice has been touted by marketers as a way to reduce the risk heart disease, prostate cancer, and erectile dysfunction, but these claims were found by the Food and Drug Administration to be largely unsubstantiated. That said, research on animals has found the pomegranate to be a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.

Sweet Potatoes

thinkstock

It might be a humble root, but the sweet potato is one of the healthiest foods on the planet. It’s a rich source of beta-carotene — a pigment that eventually converts to vitamin A within the body. October through December is the peak season to purchase them. Here are some great recipes to transform sweet potatoes into a delectable meal.

Turnips

Turnips look similar to beets and other root vegetables, but they’re actually more closely related to kale, Brussels sprouts, and arugula. When roasted, turnip roots become sweet and tender, but the real health benefits come from their leafy-green tops. A recent study found that dietary nitrate found in turnip greens can benefit cardiovascular health. Turnip greens can be braised, at a low temperature, sautéed, or quickly blanched. If you don’t know what to do with turnips or their greens, check out some of these recipes.

Cacao health benefits

Regular cocoa is already associated with dramatically lower death rates: one study found that men who eat the most chocolate had half the risk of dying compared to those who ate the least! There was an even greater 60% lower risk of death by heart attack or stroke.

However, cocoa usually goes through a chemical process called &ldquoDutching&rdquo that strips out most of the good stuff. Cacao comes to you raw and uncut.

Cacao powder is the superfood that should be in every kitchen. Packed with minerals, good fats and powerful antioxidant compounds, cacao is as super as a superfood can be.

Cacao health benefits

Regular cocoa is already associated with dramatically lower death rates: one study found that men who eat the most chocolate had half the risk of dying compared to those who ate the least! There was an even greater 60% lower risk of death by heart attack or stroke.

However, cocoa usually goes through a chemical process called &ldquoDutching&rdquo that strips out most of the good stuff. Cacao comes to you raw and uncut.

Theobroma cacao is the raw, supercharged form of cocoa with even higher levels of minerals and active compounds. Here are 20 delicious ways to get more theobroma cacao into your diet.
