8 fruits and vegetables in season in Autumn
ClementineThe humble fruit we used to find in the bottom of our Christmas stocking - clementines are great sources of vitamin C, folate, calcium, magnesium and potassium. Keep a couple on your desk at work for snack time.
BlackberryPacked full of vitamin C and a fab source of fibre, these classically autumnal berries make a beautiful addition to desserts, smoothies or atop yoghurt for breakfast.
AppleRich in antioxidants, flavanoids and dietary fibre, apples are famous for keeping the doctor away for a reason! Sprinkle slices with cinnamon for a tasty and nutritious treat.
PearAnother antioxidant powerhouse, pears can be a forgotten fruit. Bring them back into rotation as part of your breakfast or as an afternoon snack.
PumpkinNot just for Halloween! Pumpkins are loaded with beta-carotene, one of the plant carotenoids converted to vitamin A in the body. Enjoy their seeds and try a warming pumpkin soup.
BeetrootA good source of iron and folate, beetroot also contains betaine, magnesium and antioxidants. Try including beetroot in your sweet bakes - it goes surprisingly well with chocolate!
SalsifyThis root vegetable is full of nutrients, including iron, calcium, potassium and magnesium. It’s also a great source of vitamin B6, try mashing with a little butter, cream and seasoning for an alternative to potato.
ArtichokeThese beautiful vegetables contain cynarin which increases bile production and helps reduce cholesterol. Try steaming, roasting or even adding to a soup!
CabbageAnother great source of fibre, cabbage also contains potassium, folate and vitamin B1. Keep it simple with some shredded cabbage on the side, or experiment with adding bacon for a tasty side-dish.
