We all love when pumpkin is back in season and products abound to deliver the best of that favorite flavor, but what’s the next kind of seasonal produce making headlines? Sweet potatoes. Products are popping up all over this month welcoming sweet potatoes as the new star of healthy snacks.
The farther from summer we get, the more you might miss those delicious berries that are in season for too short a while. Never fear — frozen fruit is here! Often picked at the peak of freshness, frozen berries mean you can make a lot of your favorite berry-filled recipes year-round (and for a lot less money). While IQF might sound like an acronym for a science experiment, it actually stands for Individually Quick Frozen, a process in which berries are picked when ripe and frozen individually for the sole purpose of being available in the freezer section even in the depths of winter. These berries are full of vitamin C and fiber: One serving of raspberries provides 60 percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C (and 36 percent of the RDA of fiber), while blackberries have 35 percent. Blueberries are not far behind, with 25 percent of your daily requirement of vitamin C (and plenty of fiber goodness as well).
They’re everywhere, and they’re here for a limited time only, but should you be rushing out to get your pumpkin latte fix on a daily basis? Check out the nutrition info from these popular chains before you swap the seasonal latte for your usual morning joe. Read more
