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 feed us, nourish us, and inspire us to get to the kitchen and cook! Baton Rouge chiropractic patients are into health. Spine & Sports Rehab Center knows this and invites us all to eat healthy for our best Baton Rouge 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! Baton Rouge meals all need more color to spice them up. Spine & Sports Rehab Center appreciates hearing how some of our more adventurous cooking Baton Rouge chiropractic patients make new dishes with such seasonal favorites that incorporate such nutrient rich foods. What a great way to enhance daily nutrition!

How much nutrition is in these types of vegetables? Lots! 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. Spine & Sports Rehab Center is sure that they are just fine being eaten as close to their natural states as possible!

However you choose to enjoy the fall flavors, do choose to contact Spine & Sports Rehab Center for a Baton Rouge chiropractic appointment that will complement your healthy lifestyle efforts of incorporating tasty fall foods into your food plan! It's time for chiropractic care.
