We hope that everyone reading this article had a very happy and safe Halloween! Yes, with Halloween officially over, we are now in the last month of winter: November. November is a lovely month, where it’s not too cold yet, and the leaves are still bright shades of brown and orange. Snow hasn’t fallen yet, which means that snow hasn’t covered the leaves.
While you enjoy the last month of Fall, we hope that you keep eating snacks that are healthy in addition to being delicious. While we’re sure that you or someone you know might be in the vicinity of an abundance of tempting leftover candy from Halloween, we recommend that you restrain yourselves from indulging in them too much. We’re back to giving you another small list of health-focused, fall-themed snacks.
If you tried and enjoyed the snacks listed in the previous articles in this series, this new one will also satisfy you.
1. Roasted Acorn Squash
Acorn squash is exactly what its name suggests: it’s a squash that resembles an acorn.
In addition to looking cute, acorn squashes taste good and have nutrients such as fiber, potassium, and vitamin C.
We recommend that you roast them by slicing them in half and placing them into an oven. You could add cinnamon or syrup to the squash to make it even sweeter.
2. Apple Butter on Wheat Toast
We bet that you didn’t know that there was such a thing as apple butter, huh? Well, there is, and oh, wow, is it delicious!
If you’ve ever had apple sauce in your life, then we implore you to give apple butter a try. You essentially start by making apple sauce but then add more spices and sugar. When the sauce thickens and darkens, presto! You have apple butter.
While apple butter is good enough on its own, we recommend that you eat it when it’s put on a slice of toasted wheat bread. That way, you get fiber and protein to go with the natural sugar in apple butter.
Persimmons may not be among the popular fruits in America, but that doesn’t mean that they’re bad.
Persimmons are a type of cherry with a sweet, mild taste that would appeal to people who enjoy the taste of honey.
The health benefits of persimmons are that they are a high source of vitamins A, B, and C.
Winter is getting closer, so we hope that you’re taking the time to enjoy the fall season while it lasts. We hope that you try and like all the snacks we just listed.
