    Default 7 November Superfoods

    When it comes to food, November is a month of bounty. And it's not just turkey, stuffing and pies that take center stage as we inch closer to the winter months, but also a myriad of in-season, nutrient-rich fruits and veggies. After all, there's a reason why the cornucopia -- brimming with natural goodies -- is one of the symbols of Thanksgiving.
    So without further ado, here's a list of seven November superfoods you'll want to gobble (gobble) up.

    Clementines









    Why we love them:
    Clementines are an excellent source of vitamin C and dietary fiber, according to Jessica Crandall, a registered dietitian and spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. They're also sweet, juicy and portable.

    How to prepare:
    Just grab a few and go! Or toss a few clementine slices into a salad.

    Sweet Potatoes









    Why we love them:
    Sweet potatoes are a good source of dietary fiber, Crandall said. They're also high in vitamins A and C and a good source of potassium.

    How to prepare them:
    Instead of traditional (i.e. white) mashed potatoes, consider a creamy sweet potato alternative this Thanksgiving.

    Ginn also recommended roasting them, which she said brings out their natural sweetness.

    Kale









    Why we love it:
    "I think kale is one of those foods that people tried when they were little and decided they didn't like it," Crandall laughed, saying people should give the leafy green veggie another try.

    Those who do might find they actually enjoy this excellent source of vitamins A and C. Kale is also a good source of calcium and potassium.

    How to prepare:
    Try kale raw in a salad, or you can cook it (boiling and sauteing are two popular techniques). You can also look for recipes for so-called kale "chips" -- typically made by baking kale with a touch of olive oil.

    Nuts









    Why we love them:
    "I always think about nuts during the holidays," said Angela Ginn, a registered dietitian and spokesperson for the ADA. "You find them in abundance, and a small amount can help curb your apetite before you head out to that holiday party."

    Ginn added that not all nuts are created equal, but many are rich in monounsaturated fats, vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids.

    How to prepare them:
    Enjoy a handful as a quick snack (Ginn suggested about a quarter of a cup every day or every other day) or toss a few into a salad.

    Squash









    Why we love it:
    Like sweet potatoes, squash -- which comes in summer and winter varieties (actually in-season beginning in the fall) -- is rich in beta carotene, Ginn explained. Meaning it's not only good for your eyes, but can also help your skin.

    How to prepare:
    Squash is delicious roasted or steamed, Ginn said. It's also a tasty option in soothing, warming fall soups.

    Dates







    Why we love them:



    Dates are a good source of fiber, Crandall said, explaining that a quarter of a cup provides 12 percent of your daily value. She added that dates are also a good source of potassium and minerals, which can help lower blood pressure.

    How to prepare them:
    Crandall suggested trying dried dates as one of your daily servings of fruit, or adding them to baked goods, like breads. Dates can add moisture, she said.

    Pears









    Why we love them:
    Pears are an excellent source of dietary fiber and a good source of vitamin C, Crandall said.

    How to prepare them:
    Just grab one (or two) and go! You can also add pears to a rich, autumnal salad or poach them for a nutritious dessert.
