Fall Veggies and Chiropractic Complement A Healthy Lifestyle

Time for fall vegetables! Onions. Potatoes. Leeks. Garlic. Shallots. Cabbage. Celery. Eggplant. Pepper. A feast for the vegetarian and all the rest of us! Full of nutrients, these fall vegetables inspire many of us to get creative and start cooking. Cooking at home, we all know, is often healthier, more nourishing, and less expensive! Tarrytown chiropractic patients are into health. Tarrytown Chiropractic knows this and invites us all to eat healthy for our best Tarrytown life.

What does eating healthy look like in the fall? Colorful! Just imagine the whites of the onion mixing with the creams of the potatoes and the greens of celery and purples of eggplant and cabbage! Tarrytown meals all need more color to spice them up. Tarrytown Chiropractic appreciates hearing how some of our more adventurous cooking Tarrytown chiropractic patients make new dishes with such seasonal favorites that incorporate such nutrient rich foods. What a great way to enhance daily nutrition!

How much nutrition is in these types of vegetables? Lots! Polyphenols galore! Onions, leeks, and garlic are filled with polyphenols - phytonutrients and flavonoids – which are receiving more and more attention for their role in preventing degenerative diseases like cancer and cardiovascular issues. Now, don’t overpeel the onions. Much of their nutrient power is in the outer layers, nutrients like quercetin (an antioxidant to fight free radical damage), cooper, vitamin B6, B1, C and folate. (1) Eggplant delivers B1, copper and fiber as well as B6, niacin, folate and vitamin K. (2) And cabbage is really high in supplying vitamins K and C and others. (3) These fall veggies aren’t that demanding. Tarrytown Chiropractic is sure that they are just fine being eaten as close to their natural states as possible!

However you choose to enjoy the fall flavors, do choose to contact Tarrytown Chiropractic for a Tarrytown chiropractic appointment that will complement your healthy lifestyle efforts of incorporating tasty fall foods into your food plan! It's time for chiropractic care.
