Butternut squash soup with Roasted Eggplant

As we move into and through Fall cleansing season, know that cleansing is a nourishing process not a depleting one.

Some abundant Fall foods if you’re in North America (maybe those of you who read from around the globe can share others) are:

  • Pumpkin, butternut squash, winter squashes, served cooked alone or in yummy soup (add a little coconut milk)
  • Beets, carrots (raw, juiced, cooked, roasted in a salad)
  • Potatoes-sweet, white- rutabagas, turnipsroasted, mashed, baked
  • Zucchini-raw or cooked, I add it to just about anything
  • Tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, roasted, in sauces, soups
  • Apples, pears, raw, cooked, juiced
  • Arugula, kale, chard, spinach, raw, juiced, cooked,in soups, salads
  • Brussels sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kolrabi
  • Fennel, celery-I love these raw, juiced and in soups and salads
  • Onions, leeks, shallots, scallions, in everything…almost

So I cheated by grouping some together, and it wasn’t the scientist in me doing the grouping so go easy on the criticisms. Fall is one of the best times of the year to get healthy and delicious. It’s good for you with amazing nutrients, easy to prepare, and affordable especially when you buy from locals or grow your own.
PS-I’m throwing in my new favorite recipe  altered from Yummy Tummy
