Often times, as the summer begins to wind down, we forget about eating salads and start focusing on warm, comfort foods. Unfortunately, standard comfort foods tend to be pretty low or completely void of vegetables.

Vegetables provide our bodies with a large variety of nutrients that help to support our immune system and mood, among many other things. If we fail to add them to our daily diet, the lack of nourishment can make it harder to stay healthy and happy as the “flu bug” passes around the office and as the days get shorter.

Luckily, there are hundreds of warm, comfort foods recipes available at our finger tips that are full of veggies. And, if you eat what’s in season now, it can help support your body as the weather begins to change.
