Curry Cauliflower Soup (links in recipe titles)
Full of vitamin C, cauliflower is also high in fiber and is a good source of antioxidants, which are beneficial for reducing inflammation. That can help give your immune system a boost.

Roasted Fall Apple Salad
Apples are full of fiber, antioxidants and vitamin C, and spinach is a nutritional powerhouse with everything from vitamin A to riboflavin!

Broccoli with Caramelized Shallots
A diet rich in plant foods like broccoli reduces your risk of many conditions, helps to control weight, increases energy and promotes healthy skin and hair. What's not to love?

Lemon Garlic Green Beans
Use fresh green beans to get the most nutrition possible out of your meal. Garlic and lemon enhance the flavor while you load up on fiber and vitamins A, C and K.

Pecans are full of healthy fatty acids and protein that will help keep you full longer.
