Autumn Apple Crisp
Gluten Free - Plant-based - No Added Sugar
As the temperature drops and fall produce is now in full swing, there is no better way to celebrate Autumn like an apple crisp. This crisp, unlike others you may have tried or baked, is full of plant-based nutrients like fibre, plenty of antioxidants, no added sugar, and is completely plant based.
Something else to note is how seasonal eating also offers many benefits. This may seem like a recent trend, but this has been the norm for generations. Benefits of eating seasonal produce include:
Richer flavour - Fully ripened fruits and vegetables.
Better Nutrition - A lot of the time, when produce is picked before it's ripe, the nutrients do not fully develop in the fruit.
Cost Efficient - Seasonal produce is more abundant, so it is less per pound relating to cost.
Environmentally Friendly - Trucking less abundant fruits and vegetables from around the world to meet our wants requires gas and increases our carbon footprint.
Community Benefit - Buying local supports the farmers and builds a connection and trust by knowing where your food is from.
