Delicious fruits are so beneficial for your body. They’re healthy, low-calorie snacks that deliver a wide range of essential nutrients, including fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Eating fruit regularly not only helps your overall health—keeping weight in check, supporting cardiovascular wellness and so much more—but it’s also great for your skin. A cup of raspberries, for example, delivers more than 50 percent of the recommended daily intake for vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect skin cells from free radical damage.
At Vitacost, we have one word for how we want you to feel about your autumn 2013: Awesome! And that means celebrating the essence of the season in the healthiest fall foods, from pumpkin to apples.
Crisp, sweet apples and chewy chopped pecans add autumn flavor and plenty of mouth-pleasing texture to this vegan chickpea salad. Serve as is on a bed of baby spinach, with crackers as a dip or tucked into a whole wheat tortilla for a wholesome wrap.
Beach and seashore weather may be gone, but this time of the year brings its own special kind of healthy pleasures. I’m talking about apples. Dozens of varieties are available at supermarkets and, if you’re lucky, at nearby orchards. Apples are rich in a substance called quercetin – an antioxidant flavonol (part of the flavonoid family) — which is associated with a number of health benefits.*
