Ok, so you’ve flipped the calendar to November. However, that doesn’t mean it’s time to give up on fresh, farmer’s market produce in favor of frozen, canned, and jarred retail chain fruits and veggies just yet.
In fact, November offers a colorful cornucopia of nutrient rich produce as we enter the winter season. So let’s give many thanks and gobble up this bounty of November super foods…
1. Squash or Pumpkin
The next time you carve a jack-o-lantern keep in mind (when you’re carving scary eyes and a grin) that pumpkin and squash are excellent for you skin and peepers.
This is because winter squash varieties are rich in beta-carotene. Plus you can bake, roast, steam, or mash these goodies into creamy, comforting sides, soups, and stews.
