Good nutrition is always vital to our energy levels. The ongoing challenge is to avoid the ‘empty calories’ of junk food and instead choose nutrient-rich foods that will genuinely fuel our bodies – and this is no different in the autumn.
However, whereas salads are a great option in the summer, in cooler months you’ll naturally want to warm your body from the inside and keep cravings at arm’s length. Opt for satisfying home-made soups, steamed vegetables, roasted root vegetables, whole grains. And make sure you get plenty of vitamin C and zinc to keep colds at bay.
Our advice: Seasonal produce tends to be higher in essential nutrients than fruit and vegetables that aren’t in season, so shop local and seasonal, and ideally organic too. This will give your body the nutrition it needs, boosting your energy reserves and your immune system too.
