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! Sandy Springs chiropractic patients are into health. Cross Chiropractic Center knows this and invites us all to eat healthy for our best Sandy Springs 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! Sandy Springs meals all need more color to spice them up. Cross Chiropractic Center appreciates hearing how some of our more adventurous cooking Sandy Springs chiropractic patients make new dishes with such seasonal favorites that incorporate such nutrient rich foods. What a great way to enhance daily nutrition!

Just how nutritious are these fall vegetables? Incredibly! 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. Cross Chiropractic Center is sure that they are just fine being eaten as close to their natural states as possible!

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