Best Slimming Foods for Fall

  • Apples. An apple a day keeps the fat cells away! A perfect grab-and-go snack, apples are loaded with pectin – a fiber that’s especially filling.
  • Sweet potatoes. These veggies keep you full without filling you out. Great as a dessert with cinnamon and Stevia® sprinkled on top, these low glycemic index vegetables help stabilize blood sugars and prevent cravings. Give these Sweet Potato Cupcakes a try!
  • Tuscan kale. A healthy and hearty vegetable, kale has fiber, folate, iron and vitamin K. Sprinkled with Morton® Lite Salt and pepper and baked, kale makes crispy “chips” that are only 35 calories per cup!
  • Cauliflower. Pureed cauliflower can be added to soups as a thickener. It adds texture and creaminess without added calories! A good source of potassium and fiber, it will keep you full as well. This Braised Cauliflower Curry is the perfect recipe to try this fall.
  • Kiwi. A small, sweet snack in the perfect portion size, kiwi fruit has only 46 calories. With fiber and water, kiwi keeps you and your sweet tooth satisfied.
  • Tangerines. Put some segments in your salad for a sweet burst of citrus goodness! Plus, the vitamin C boost will help ward off winter colds!
  • Broccoli. Rich in vitamins A and C as well as calcium, broccoli is a great soup or salad add-in. Starting your meal with broccoli, especially in a soup, can translate to fewer calories consumed in one sitting.
  • Grapefruit. An all-natural weight loss aid packed with fiber to prolong digestion, stave off hunger and prevent cravings. It delivers nearly 100 percent of your daily vitamin C requirement, making this a fall staple!
  • Grapes. Ripening in summer, grapes taste the best in fall. Freeze these little sweet treats for a refreshing, almost indulgent snack!
