Apple Crumble Recipe Ingredients

Fall is by far one of our favorite seasons. Although the weather is getting cooler and layers of clothing are being piled on – fall is one of the most gorgeous seasons with the best food!

It’s an incredible time to support our bodies with delicious and hardy root veggies and crisp, sweet apples.

Here are a few reasons to fall in love with fall….and eat a fantastic apple crumble too!

1. Eat your rustic roots

Butternut Squash

  • Firstly, Eat them sweet potatoes, butternut squash, carrots, parsnips, acorn squash…
  • These rustic roots are usually orange and yellow – these colours represent creativity, physical and emotional energy, expression, and optimism!
  • Foods that are rich in these colours support the digestive system and stimulate our appetite.
  • They’re high in vitamin A & C; these vitamins stimulate our immune system, promote healthy skin & reduce inflammation.

 

2. Go for the green

Kale

  • Eat them kale and collards
  • These cruciferous veggies contain indole-3-carbinol, which helps the liver detox excess estrogen (this doesn’t just apply to you ladies!), reducing cancer risk especially breast, ovarian, and prostate cancers.
  • Get your vitamin C and A from these leafy greens.
  • Don’t forget about vitamin K, important for healthy blood clotting and bone health.

 

3. Get your apple on

  • Apples contain a fiber called pectin, which regulates ‘waste’ removal, gets rid of toxins and cleans out the colon! Pectin is very soothing for the digestive tract.
  • Get your intake of vitamin C to boost immunity and prevent inflammation.

 

4. Get saucy with cranberries

cranberries

  • Don’t sweat the UTI (urinary tract infection), cranberries help prevent and relieve UTIs by preventing bacteria from attaching to the wall of the bladder
  • Want pretty teeth? Cranberries prevent bacteria from attaching to the walls of tissues keeping our oral hygiene in check and even preventing stomach ulcers – ouch!
  • And yet again, another fabulous source of vitamin C and fibre, woohoo!

 

5. People of the world, spice up your life with cinnamon

Cinnamon Sticks

  • Feeling that 3pm crash? Craving carbs? Cinnamon balances our blood sugar so that we stay nice and energized throughout the day without feeling those lows!
  • Cinnamon also prevents unwanted blood clots, is anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial – goodbye inflammation and colds!

 

6. Boost your boogie with ginger and garlic

Garlic Bulb

  • Let’s prevent illness this fall and winter season with ginger and garlic.
  • Ginger relieves digestive upset and nausea, combats microbes, supports the delivery of nutrients and removal of waste and keeps us warm through the cold winter nights.
  • Raw garlic contains allicin (a sulfur containing component) which has anti-cancerous properties and lowers blood pressure.
  • Garlic, raw or cooked, is anti-microbial and gives the immune system an extra kick, hya!

 

7. Guess who’s coming to dinner

  • It’s so important to share your meals with loved ones and feel a sense of community.
  • When we’re eating with those we love, we are in a relax and digest mode, which allows us to properly metabolize our food and take in all of the wonderful nutrients the meal has to offer.
  • Drop the stress and come on, get happy!
