Fall—just the thought of it brings visions of colorful leaves, cooler temperatures and wonderful Kentucky fall foods, such as sweet potatoes and apples. Not only are these foods delicious, but they are jam-packed with nutrients.
Apples and sweet potatoes are two of nature’s great nutritional gifts, and even the wrapping is edible. They are low in calories, fat, and sodium. They are cholesterol free and are an excellent source of fiber. They also contain many of the phyto-chemicals that research shows may play an important role in preventing disease.
