Here at iGalen, we developed a product called Emulin that is designed to help manage and control the carbohydrates you are ingesting on a regular basis. Both Emulin and carbohydrates are natural elements that come from the resources that have been available since the Earth began. But humans have made the process of getting proper nutrition more difficult and have turned carbohydrates into something evil.
Carbs are not evil, but they must be managed. And we must get all the nutrients our bodies need, but…
- Farmlands have been managed improperly, depleting many nutrients from the soil.
- Food processing strips many nutrients.
- Prices versus income have driven some people to eat what they can. Even if it is not nutritious.
We would love to solve all these problems, and we have scientists working hard on items that can help humans with health and wellness issues. But the primary focus is teaching people how to live, eat and be healthy.
This blog is our way of teaching. And today, we want to give you some great food choices that come from the Fall harvest. Be sure to share these great foods with your friends and family.
Healthy Fall Harvest Eating – Apples
When someone said “An apple a day keeps the Doctor away,” they were telling us something that is quite close to the truth.
Apples are full of antioxidants, which battle many of the sicknesses and diseases that run rampant throughout the world.
But do keep in mind that there are over 7,000 varieties of apples and many do not hold a high nutritious value. The most nutritious apples are:
- Granny Smith
- Red Delicious
- and Braeburn
Healthy Fall Harvest Eating – Arugula
This plant is known to give its best in the fall. It is considered a cruciferous vegetable and the leaves are tender and have a unique tangy flavor.
Arugula is full of health benefits. Experts say that they believe it can slow the growth of cancer. It has a high content of Vitamin K which helps bones. Arugula also contains alpha-lipoic acid that is known to lower glucose levels and increase insulin sensitivity. It’s a great vegetable for diabetics and also for those who may be showing signs of diabetes.
Healthy Fall Harvest Eating – Cranberries
They ripen in autumn and that is why you often find so many cranberry dishes at Thanksgiving feasts.
Don’t hold yourself back from ingesting these healthy berries. They are quite low in calories and high in Vitamins A, C, and K.
There are many amazing benefits cranberries provide for human health:
- Helps prevent urinary infections
- Lowers blood pressure
- Studies have shown that cranberries may slow the progression of many types of cancer
- It has also been discovered that cranberries can keep bacteria from building on teeth and gums helping oral health
Healthy Fall Harvest Eating – Pears
Almost all pear varieties are harvested in the Fall. And similar to apples, we can find many types of them as well. But unlike apples, all varieties of pears have great health benefits…
- High in fiber which makes them great for weight management
- Lowers cholesterol levels
- Stabilizes blood sugar
- and much more
Pears are loaded with antioxidants that include Vitamins C and K as well as copper.
Some of the most favored varieties are
- Anjou pears (both red and green)
- Asian pears
- Bartlett pears
- and Bosc pears
Healthy Fall Harvest Eating – Sweet Potatoes
These delicious root vegetables are in season all throughout the fall. And believe it or not, sweet potatoes are not in the same family as a regular potato. They are actually in the Morning Glory family while regular potatoes are in the Nightshade family.
Sweet potatoes are full of healthy properties:
- Beta Carotene
- Vitamin C
- B Vitamins
Various studies have found that sweet potatoes are great for eye health, regulating blood sugar, digestive health and may also defend the body against certain types of cancer.
I suggest you, to take a look at the many great recipes there are. You will find them to be easy to cook and delicious at the same time.
Healthy Fall Harvest Eating – Grapes
While a person can find grapes year round, it seems that the juiciest, best-tasting grapes are harvested during the autumn.
Grapes contain so many “good for you” ingredients…
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin K
- and Resveratrol which keeps our skin healthy
Healthy Fall Harvest Eating – Brussels Sprouts
These famous Brussels Sprouts that many children hate are in fact filled with tons of amazing health benefits.
- High in Vitamin C that helps the immune system
- Also has an outrageous amount of the bone healthy Vitamin K
- Brussels Sprouts have numerous other Vitamins and Minerals that our bodies require.
Studies have shown that a diet that adds these mini cabbages have less chance of developing cancer. Plus, they have Omega 3s that we primarily get from fish. A fact is that we need these Omega 3s to have a properly working body system.
Healthy Fall Harvest Eating – Celery
The best celery is harvested in fall. Many people love to eat this stalk with peanut butter or cream cheese. It is also used in many recipes like soup and salads.
Celery is full of antioxidants that keep our bodies in “heal their self” mode. You will find
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin K
The health properties that this vegetable has, tells me that if I had to choose any type of food to live off in a survival situation, I believe celery would be the one I choose.
Healthy Fall Harvest Eating – Persimmon
This is a late fall fruit that grows on a tree. If you have ever tasted a persimmon before the first freeze, you may never want one again.
Before that first freeze, a persimmon is so sour and tart, it can actually start your taste buds crying, but after that freeze, this fruit is so sweet and delicious, you will probably be addicted to it. Not only that, but persimmon is chock full of healthy ingredients.
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin K
- Vitamin B6
- and more
They can keep blood pressure regulated, support good vision and help support our immune systems.
Healthy Fall Harvest Eating – Pumpkin
Now, pumpkins aren’t just for Halloween carving. Pumpkins are considered to be super healthy. Used in soups, bread and in those great pumpkin pies that we see at Thanksgiving. They are high in beta-carotene that gives it it’s orange color. Beta-carotene is believed to be a great tool to fight off cancer, beat asthma and fights also signs of aging.
The only caution here is to stay clear of canned pumpkin. When you buy pumpkin filling at stores or supermarkets, they usually have added sugars and preservatives.
Healthy Fall Harvest Eating – Pomegranates
Since the old days, pomegranates have been used for their medicinal attributes. Considered a super fruit, pomegranates are loaded with Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Folate, and Potassium.
Studies have found that pomegranates may help stop prostate cancer, protect against Alzheimer’s disease, and it is an anti-inflammatory as well as having other health benefits.
There are many good pomegranate juices manufactured, but getting a ripe pomegranate that is normally harvested in the fall is best.
All of these food items that are harvested in autumn are great for you. But they do have carbohydrates. That is why I want to remind you that iGalen manufactures Emulin, which is a proprietary blend of natural items, help you manage the carbs so you stay at an optimal weight.
