7 September Health Focus Benefits of Autumn There is a new crispness in the air that means Autumn is coming, and with it the delicious Fall vegetables. Pumpkin, squash and zucchini will be taking over the Farmer s Markets around town. Not only are these veggies delicious but they pack a lot of vitamins and nutrients. Zucchini are rich in copper and manganese which support our tissues and bones. In addition zucchini is loaded with vitamin C, magnesium, fiber, phosphorus, potassium, folate, vitamins B1, B3, and B6, vitamin K, and trace amounts of zinc, calcium, vitamin B2, iron, and choline. In fact, many vegetarians eat zucchini instead of drinking milk. Squash is also a powerhouse vegetable. It offers the same nutrients as the zucchini and is also very rich in dietary fiber. Dietary fiber helps regulate blood sugar making it a healthy food for folks with Diabetes. Last but not least, the pumpkin. This nutritious Fall favorite is not just for Halloween and pie. The pumpkin and the seeds are full of vitamins and nutrients. The pumpkin is also one of the best sources of beta-carotene which a powerful antioxidant. Eating foods rich in beta-carotene offers protection against heart disease and asthma. It also delays aging and body degeneration. Pumpkin Soup with Almond & Sage 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 3 Sage leaves 1 onion chopped ¾ cup unsalted roasted blanched almonds 1 tablespoon flour 3 cups unsalted Chicken stock 2 cups pumpkin puree or 1 15oz can 100% pumpkin (the Mayo clinic says both fresh pumpkin and canned pumpkin are packed with nutrients) ¾ teaspoon kosher salt 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper 2 tablespoons chopped chives for garnish Place butter, sage, and onion in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over mediumhigh. Cover and cook 7 to 8 minutes or until onion is lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Coarsely chop 1/4 cup almonds; set aside. Whisk together flour and 1/4 cup stock. Add remaining 1/2 cup almonds, flour mixture, remaining 2 3/4 cups stock, pumpkin, salt, and pepper to onion mixture. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to keep pumpkin mixture from sticking to bottom of pan. Place pumpkin mixture in a blender; remove center piece of blender lid (to allow steam to escape). Secure lid on blender. Place a clean towel over opening in lid. Process until smooth.
