Are you ready to feel awesome about autumn? Get ready to celebrate the essence of the season with delicious recipe and snack ideas made with your favorite fall flavors from pumpkin spice and sweet apples to cinnamon and more.
All About Apples
Not only does this sweet (and sometimes tart) fruit pack a satisfying crunch, but it's health benefits are nearly endless. Apples are full of fiber, which benefits your cholesterol levels and waistline, in addition to essential vitamins and minerals.
- Apple cider vinegar can help you digest your food while adding flavor to veggies and salads. Try it on your next salad with Bragg Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar.
- Around the Vitacost.com office, we love to snack. During the fall, secret snack stashes become shared treasures. Right now, we're loving organic apple chips! Try Bare Fruit Organic Apple chips in cinnamon, Fuji or Granny Smith.
- Bored with ordinary toast? Spread Eden Foods Organic Apple Butter on your favorite bread, crackers, pretzels or pretty much anything.
- For a healthy after-school snack for your little ones, Earth's Best Kidz Organic Apple Sauce cups are perfect and won't spoil their appetite for the delicious dinner you prepared.
- Fall wouldn't be properly spent without at least one cup of baked cinnamon apple tea! Plus, our new Vitacost Signature Organic Tea collection offers more than 25 flavors such as CinnaZing and Chai Time.
Pumped About Pumpkin
This bright orange squash provides more than a canvas to carve silly faces on to. Pumpkins are a great source of fiber, vitamin A and protein!
- Farmer's Market Organic Canned Pumpkin is a fan-favorite and rightfully so. One way to use this pureed treat is by mixing with plain Greek yogurt. Just add a sprinkle of cinnamon, a dash of stevia and you've got a tasty, healthy dessert.
- When you're craving something crunchy, ditch the potato chips and opt for something more festive! To reap the benefits of pumpkin mentioned above, try Eden Foods Organic Pumpkin Seeds to satisfy those hunger pains.
- Another great snack option, but also a suitable choice if you need a quick energy boost, is Nature's Path Organic Flax Plus Pumpkin-N-Spice granola bars. These chewy bars are made with pumpkin seeds, nuts, whole grain oats, flax and savory spices.
