As we transition into autumn you may find your body craves more sweet and calorie dense foods. This is designed to increase our body weight and prepare for the long and cold winter months ahead. To avoid the sweet temptation of pastries and other processed sugar desserts seek winter root vegetables including carrots, rutabaga, parsnips, turnips and pumpkin, which can satisfy the craving and provide an abundance of nutrients to your body. If you’re on a low or no carb diet you’ll need to increase your healthy fats to accommodate the increased caloric demand. Healthy fats would include tallow, lard, duck fat, ghee and butter.
