With the closing of the summer harvest and introduction to fall, incorporate these September super foods into your diet to help maintain weight, fight disease and prolong life expectancy.
“You’ll get all the nutrients you need from eating a rainbow of fruits and vegetables,” says Kimberly Altman, R.D., to the Huffington Post.

Peppers in general, but the red variety in particular, pack a surprising amount of vitamin C, plus a hearty dose of potassium, says Altman. The crunchy veggie also contains skin-soothing vitamin A. Plus, their naturally sweet flavor may help curb your sweet tooth, says Klein.
