In addition to your family’s health and wellness, it’s important to take some time for yourself as a parent and caregiver to focus on your own. Celebrate fall with Eat Right Philly and check out their delicious recipes and tips to make the most of the season. Also, check out their new virtual, self-paced lessons to learn about setting goals and stretching food dollars!

The Gifts of Fall Produce!

Apples, grapes, pears, broccoli, carrots, greens, potatoes, and yams are just some examples of the delicious fresh produce fall brings us. Check out this Seasonal Produce Guide for a full list, and get in the fall spirit by trying these recipes:

  • This colorful and tasty Roasted Root Vegetable recipe is a great way to use up sweet potatoes, carrots, and the hidden gem – parsnips. Turn your oven up to 400 degrees, chop up any root vegetables you have, toss them in olive oil, and pop them in the oven for 1 hour.  It is that easy and also a great way to heat up your kitchen!
  • Cooler weather also means soup season is here! Check out this flavorful, nutrient-packed Sweet Potato Pumpkin Soup recipe that uses seasonal ingredients – and takes no time at all!
    • Quick Tip: Buy double the ingredients while they are cheaper in season and freeze half of the soup to enjoy later. Cool the soup and then gently scoop into gallon sized freezer bags, seal them, and lay them flat in the freezer.
