It’s Good Food Friday! Today I shared tips and recipes for a healthier fall.
A nutritious fall pantry staple
One nutritious fall pantry staple is oats! And I’ve partnered with Quaker to share their goodness and versatility. One serving of oats is a nutritional powerhouse and contain a balance of both insoluble and soluble fiber, important for digestive health. Incorporating oats into your daily meals can also help increase your whole grain consumption, an area that most Americans fall short on according to NHANES data. Because oats serve as a nutritious blank canvas, you can enjoy them savory or sweet, hot or cold. I shared them incorporated into pantry staple breakfasts three ways including overnight oats, honey pecan granola and baked pumpkin oatmeal. You can learn more about the benefits of whole grain oats at QuakerOats.com.
Fun fall snacking essential
I share stacked gluten-free chips with all the taste and none of the junk by The Good Crisp Company. They non-GMO with no artificial colors or added sugar and come in delicious flavors including aged white cheddar, sea salt and vinegar, outback bbq and sour cream and onion. Enjoy them dipped into salsa or guacamole, in sheet pan nachos or even as a crunchy gluten-free breadcrumb swap. You can find them locally at Walmart, Harris teeter, food lion and whole foods.
Easy fall cooking hack
Next I shared a cooking hack to make serving flavorful home cooked meals easy without sacrificing quality. Last Bite’s seasonings are created from a premium selection of seasonings and spices from around the world and are fresh blended and packaged in the US. Their black label packaging is designed to keep light out and the seasonings fresher for longer with a peek-a-boo side slit making it easy to see how much is left. Their Mainly Mains make it easy as can be to get dinner on the table. Simply add water and a protein to the whole seasoning packet and set your pressure cooker, slow cooker or stove top method according to the package instructions and you have a meal that tastes like you ordered from a new exciting restaurant. Last Bite’s mission is to simplify sophisticated home cooking, which is apparent in their products. Find the Last Bite products at lastbite.com.
Fall sweet treat
Finally we have a sweet treat to enjoy this fall that’s plant-based and keto-friendly. Nutreat is a low glycemic sweet superfood snack with no added sugars. It’s made with nutrient-dense ingredients including fruit, flax seeds and green bananas so its rich in prebiotic fiber, which supports gut health. It comes in chocolate, coconut and berries flavors, which can be enjoyed on toast, paired with fruit, added to a smoothie and of course enjoyed by the spoonful. You can find them at Nutreat.com.
