Food for the Soul
“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” Lucy Maud Montgomery, Canadian Author
It seems like yesterday we had long summer days, but as autumn approaches we are adorned with falling leaves, shorter days, and lifestyle changes. Autumn is Mother Nature’s last kiss before winter!
Our human bodies also change with the seasons. Food is seasonal and I call autumn, “The season of root vegetables.” I was happy to see a news report that Edmonton and surrounding areas had gardeners and farmers donating fresh vegetables from abundant crops to Edmonton’s Food Bank (11508 120 Street, 780-425-2133). Diet is very important to health and well-being.
I recently took a course through the Edmonton Primary Care Network Northgate Centre (1038, 9499 – 137 Avenue, 780-473-7131) on Eating Healthy. It was a very educational experience on how to eat the proper way for health, led by certified dietitians, I found it informative and helpful.
So, we are entering the seasons of foods that soothe the soul! Remember when preparing for our winter that diet equals health and well-being!
Have a “soup-er” season!
