As the seasons change it is always a good idea to adapt your meal planning to include seasonal items. This will not only provide you with fresh wholesome foods but shopping by season can also help you save money.
Here are the top fall foods that are good for weight loss.
Pomegranates are very high in fiber which is great for weight loss because they will help you to feel full longer preventing you from overeating. Pomegranate arils (seeds) are a great portable snack and are full of vitamin C and potassium.
Spaghetti squash is low in calories, low in carbs, and high in antioxidants. It’s a great food to get you into the fall spirit. It is a smart substitute for any pasta or noodle, so next time you crave spaghetti or mac and cheese use spaghetti squash in these (and many other) pasta dishes.
Pears are also full of fiber which makes them a great on the go snack that will also help you feel full. Pears are a good food to help reduce bloating in your stomach and will help aid in digestion.
Pumpkin is the quintessential fall flavor, spice, and food. From coffee to bread pumpkin flavoring is everywhere this time of year. Consider using pumpkin in soup, smoothie or in many other dishes because 1 cup contains less that 50 calories.
Apples are an amazing on the go snack. They are low in calories and high in fiber plus there are many different types of apples to keep you from getting bored eating the same kind over again.
Sage works well in a variety of dishes and helps you to get that fall feeling. It is also known to be a calming spice and is a good digestion aid.
