Closing thoughts:

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring. I hope, with the above recipes, I’ve inspired you to add some wonderful fall veggies into your diet.

Fall veggies are packed with color, and incredibly healthy. The yellow and orange squash are packed with beta-carotene and vitamin C. Cruciferous veggies, such as kale, cauliflower and brussel sprouts are incredibly healthy and an absolute must in any healthy diet. These healthy powerhouse veggies have many benefits, including:

  • anti-cancer
  • anti-depression
  • pain relief/anti-inflammatory
  • HEART PROTECTION
  • anti-oxidant
  • protection from toxins
  • enhance cognitive function

What’s your favorite fall vegetable? I’d love to hear in the comments below!

Until next time, Namaste my friends.

As part of my new series The Insomnia Fix, I have compiled a list of 10 snack foods and links to 10 recipes that can help fight insomnia. The snacks and recipes contain foods high in vitamins, minerals and hormones that help promote relaxation or help the body produce the vital sleep hormone melatonin.

10 snack foods to fight insomnia

  • almonds – high in magnesium-a muscle relaxer
  • tart cherries – high in melatonin- a sleep hormone
  • bananas – high in tryptophan – a precursor and necessary component to the production of melatonin
  • pineapple – known to boost melatonin
  • pumpkin seeds – high in tryptophan
  • walnuts – high in melatonin
  • goji berries – one of the best known sources of melatonin
  • Sweet potatoes – high in potassium – a muscle relaxer
  • dairy products – high in tryptophan
  • poultry – high in tryptophan

Below are links to 10 recipes designed to help you relax and produce more melatonin. Some of the links contain more than the recipe being highlighted.
