Peak Produce: Autumn Superfoods
The seasons are changing yet again. You're putting away your flip-flops in exchange for flats and boots; you're switching your tank tops for sweaters; and ready-or-not you're mentally preparing for the chillier weather that's ahead.

However, just because the temperatures are dropping doesn't mean you need to skip out on all the peak produce in your local farmer's market or grocery store.

Fall foods should not be underestimated. For instance, apples are extremely popular this time of year. Coming in at only 95 calories per medium-sized apple, and with four grams of fiber, this superfood also accounts for 14 percent of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C.

Registered Dietitian, Dr. Felicia Stoler, PhD, shares information on all the best superfoods for fall and where to find them.
