Despite being born in the spring, the fall is my favorite time of year.
It represents change, reincarnation and perceived dormancy – like a cocoon!
This time of year brings to mind harvest.
Sunlight is decreasing now, so I find it best to eat an abundance of foods that grow closer to the ground than summer vine foods – also foods that are the color of the sun (yellows and oranges) like the many variety of squash, beans and lentils – along with your 365 a year greens of course 😉
The latter part of the year is the perfect time for lots of soups and stews too.
Spiced teas with cinnamon and ginger to warm you up on cool mornings.
I love this time of year!
Pumpkin pie, sweet potato pies and peach cobblers…mmmm 🙂
Let’s not forget hot cocoa.
I guess I shouldn’t have written this post while on a cleanse eh? lol
Now’s a good time to start planning your Thanksgiving dinner too – especially if like me, you are making it an all natural, vegan friendly affair – but have meat/picky eaters to please and needs lots of time to find recipes, create recipes and plan 🙂
Be sure to check out the blog over at Makeydah’s Pantry for some up coming Thanksgiving recipes with healthy twists and more smoothies throughout the month of September.
Happy Autumn everyone!
