Happy first day of Fall! It’s time to wear sweaters, drink cider, and eat all of the cozy recipes.
Kicking off the season with 10 healthy and delicious Fall Recipes. All of these recipes are gluten free, dairy free, and so cozy and perfect for Fall! Several of these recipes are made with local and seasonal (to the NY area) ingredients.
Eating seasonal typically means eating local. There are several benefits to this way of eating. Local food does not travel as far to get to you. As a result, eating local reduces transportation and the harmful effects to the environment associated with transporting goods long distances. Additionally, the shorter travel distance also needs that the produce is not harvested until it reaches its peak ripeness (and maximum nutrient content). Produce in grocery stores is typically picked before it is ripe so that it will be in the perfect ripe condition once it is sitting on the store shelves. However, picking produce prior to its peak ripeness is at the expense of the produce’s nutrient potential.
