Superfoods for Your Thanksgiving Feast


You might not be able to bring your Thanksgiving holiday feast out of doors if the weather is too chilly. However, these nine fall super foods are hot!

Create true splendor on your holiday table with this colorful array of farmer’s market finds…

 

1. Winter Squash

It’s difficult to find a vibrant yellow, orange, and deep rust-colored veggie to take you into the cold winter months. But squash—from acorn to pumpkin and butternut to spaghetti—offer a delicious nutty yet sweet flavor that can be used in a variety of soups, salads, side dishes, stews, and even pureed into desert breads.

Simply spice your squash with a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon for a true ode to autumn. You might not have known that winter squash is a little known source of omega-3 fatty acids as well as vitamin A, to promote eye health.
