Seasonal Foods To Eat In Fall
It’s always better to eat fresh and organic foods, especially fruits and vegetables. The best products to buy and consume are those that are in season. Nowadays we are lucky enough to almost buy anything we want at any given time of the year. No one has to wait for a certain harvest and if there is shortage somewhere of a certain product you can get it delivered from somewhere else almost instantaneously. The advancements made in the food industry have many ups and downs affecting price, quality and availability. This fall season try local venders and purchase foods that are strictly in season. There are plenty of great options and sure to taste even better!
One of the most popular nuts and food items of the October month is chestnuts. This is because of the Catalan festival, La Castañada, also known as All Saints’ Day.

Another popular seasonal food during the festival of La Castañada is sweet potatoes. It’s the perfect snack or the bulk of a meal on a cold fall day. Typically roasted to perfection to get all the sweet and sensational flavors. It’s also a vegetable so you get points for eating healthy… to a certain extent.
