Autumn is a season when there is an abundance of various fruit and veggies. This is the perfect time to get charged with lots of useful elements and nutrients from natural sources, as well as enjoy rich and dense foods that could be prepared from fresh veggies. However, it is very important to pay attention on seasonal factors that impact our diet and eating patterns. In particular, in autumn everyone should keep in mind the following two tendencies that are connected with our nutrition and must be controlled through our seasonal diet.

Seasonal DietFirst of all, when the weather gets colder, most of us prefer to warm ourselves with a cup of hot tea with cookies, chocolate or something sweet. Also, after long hot summer days, autumn is finally the time to eat richer, fattier and spicier foods, which are not always healthy. That is why for many people autumn is linked to receiving more pleasure from eating, accompanied with a slight weight gain.

Besides, there’s another problem which we all have to face to one or another extent. I am talking about autumn tiredness and depression. The experts are convinced that it is possible to lower the effects or completely avoid these negative seasonal factors by eating certain foods. In particular, adding to your seasonal diet the foods high with iodine (including sea kelp and seaweed, cheese, cow milk, yogurt, eggs, and others), which can stimulate metabolism and keep bright.

In addition, it is necessary to include to our daily diet the foods which can stimulate our body to produce serotonin, a hormone that has great influence on our mood. Rich and healthy natural foods, such as broccoli, beans, bananas and others should also be regularly consumed during this season. Finally, for good spirit and energy it is necessary to eat the foods with a high content of magnesium. Those include various nuts, dairy products, beans, bread and others.
