Fall Harvest is Fast Approaching!POSTED BY: Samson Brands on Tuesday, September 14, 2010
Hello everyone! This is one of our most favorite times of the year around here for us raw food lovers! Fall is just around the corner at last, and you know what that means: The Corn and tomatoes are out, and the apples and winter squash are in. So get ready to head on down to your local farmer's market and load up on luscious, delicious and healthy seasonal produce—crisp apples, juicy pears, rich butternut squash and more! Here at Samson Brands, we're absolutely overcome with our excitement and anticipation for our harvest from our own little modest organic garden. We're expecting some great, plump, cucumbers, eggplant, squash, peppers, and we're hoping the last of our greens will be ready for harvest before winter hits us here in Connecticut!
Around the end of August and early September every year, stores begin to flood with flavors and scents that can't help but evoke visions of falling leaves, hay rides, and warm cozy evenings spent curled up beside a hearty fire with family and friends. Fall fruits and veggies are an excellent way to bring both health and great taste to your table. When you cook or juice up a healthy fresh serving of them, they're sure to bring to bring the spirit of the season to your taste buds!
The recipes for you, your family and friends that can be derived from these fantastic winter foods are endless, there really is no limit to what you can create! If you're using your juicer for your treat baking needs during the upcoming Holiday season, yet want to stay true to eating as raw as possible, we recommend using Agave Nectar, which is actually 1.4 to 1.6 times sweeter than sugar, and as natural as can be!
Its important to keep in mind that although this time of year has such a wonderful abundance of vegetables, make sure that you don't neglect your fruits! Fruits, as a whole, are essentially cleansing foods. They have a very high water content that flushes out your digestive tract, your kidneys, and goes great strides in purifying the bloodstream.
Its also important to note, that Nutcrackers common to this type of year, aren't just a decoration, and a part of this seasonal culture. There is some validity in their existence during this time! During the colder fall and winter months, Respiratory infection is quite common. Not only are nuts a great snack that boosts the immune system, and they will aid your body in combating that infection! Look for nuts such as Almonds and Sunflower Seeds, as they are rich in Vitamin E!
For those of you that greatly enjoy the benefits that are provided through nuts, did you know that the Samson Juicer even has an optional oil extractor attachment? It extracts oil from flax seeds, sesame seeds, hemp seeds and other dry foods with ease. Just like juicing fruits and vegetables, you can now als start reaping the benefits of producing high quality, fresh organic oils!

Fall is fast approaching everyone, and all of us at Samson Brands wish you the best of luck in your fall harvest, and your raw foods cooking!
