Even children know to eat more fresh vegetables. This advice is especially relevant in autumn, when the concentration of vitamins and beneficial trace elements in fruits reaches its maximum. Check out the top 5 autumn products that will support your body in the off-season.

Eating fresh tomato salad every day, you strengthen the heart muscle and increase immunity. And the tomato contains vitamin B, which smoothes wrinkles, rejuvenates the skin and refreshes the complexion.
Like all legumes, beans are high in iron, protein, and vitamins. However, unlike their counterparts, peas and lentils, beans retain most of the beneficial trace elements even after heat treatment. Regular consumption of bean dishes normalizes the functioning of the intestines and pancreas, helps fight excess weight and promotes the active removal of toxins and toxins. No wonder doctors recommend eating a lot of beans after a course of antibiotics.
Experts in healthy nutrition call it the “periodic table” — so many different elements are contained in it. The orange fruit has its healing effect on almost any human organ. Autumn beauty is also indispensable for weight loss, and all because the rare vitamin T contained in it helps to digest food and speed up the metabolic process.
Each of the varieties of cabbage has its own unique properties. White cabbage contains a large amount of antioxidants, which prevent cells from aging prematurely and prevent the development of malignant tumors. Broccoli strengthens the immune system: it contains 2.5 times more vitamin C than citrus fruits. Cauliflower is a champion in the content of biotin, which prevents inflammatory processes in the skin. It has a beneficial effect on the health and growth of hair.
Nutritionists have long recognized this vegetable as “their own” and consider it the best assistant in the fight against obesity. Eggplant holds the record for pectin content, which removes toxins and excess cholesterol, and the potassium they contain removes fluid from the body and protects the cardiovascular system. Eggplant retains its beneficial properties during heat treatment and goes well with meat and other vegetables. Eggplant dishes — starters, stews, salads and casseroles — perfectly diversify your autumn menu. Try to cook a hot appetizer of eggplant and chicken liver — both tasty and healthy!
