Weight Management

When it comes to fall produce, apples and pumpkins tends to take center stage, but there are plenty of other seasonal delicacies with health benefits. Take pears, for instance, which many forget are at their ripest in autumn. Eaten with its skin, one medium pear has 6 grams of fiber or 20 perfect of the daily recommended amount. Another less-recognized option is spaghetti squash. Prepared correctly in a microwave or oven, this vegetable’s flesh turns into spaghetti-like strands that can be served with marinara sauce as a low-calorie alternative to grain-based pasta.
