Fall's Functional Foods

Creative inspiration for cooking up harvest gold

As the weather cools, we’re spoiled for choice as the season’s bumper crop of fruits and vegetables offers up a tantalizing and delicious range of bold flavours and textures. While navigating the grocery store aisles and farmers’ markets this fall, consider packing your bags with a variety of seasonal functional foods.

Functional foods are defined as foods that likely have a beneficial effect on our health beyond basic nutrition. While nature provides us with many whole foods that help to optimize our health, the broad umbrella of functional foods also includes fortified, enriched, or enhanced foods.

Examples of these foods are easily found during a trip to the grocery store, such as fortified orange juice or infant formula. While functional foods may help promote wellness, it’s important to note they can’t make up for poor eating habits.

By knowing more about the specific health benefits of fall’s functional foods, you’ll be better able to make choices that allow for promoting and maintaining your overall health. When you’re ready to head into the kitchen, let the following recipes serve as creative inspiration as you cook up some of the best ingredients this season has to offer.
