Depending on where you are, the autumn is a wonderful time to enjoy seasonal foods. Of course, there are pumpkins aplenty, but also beets, rocket (arugula), spinach, cabbage and sweet potatoes – all of which lend themselves to delicious, nourishing meals. Take care of yourself from the inside out – and sweet potatoes and pumpkin especially are wonderful fillers for one of my favourite fall foods – PIE.
The goat pictured below is Harriet, who is friends with Cindy, yesterday’s goat. They live happily together on my friend Pippa’s farm.
Make sure to stay nourished as the days grow shorter and colder this fall
Incase you missed it, yesterday’s goat from The Haven Zoo was named after the character Jim from the US version of the comedy program The Office. Continuing on that theme, today’s goat is named after Dwight Kurt Schrute III, who was often the target of Jim’s pranks. In addition to being pranked repeatedly by Jim, Dwight also served as the “Assistant to the Regional Manager” role as part of his duties as a paper salesperson, health and safety enthusiast, volunteer sheriff’s deputy, and managed his family’s beet farm. Beets are nutrient dense, a great addition to salads, and actually in season right now! Perhaps consider trying out a new beet recipe, supporting the Haven Zoo, and then having a mini-binge of some hilarious Office episodes?
I bet Dwight the Goat enjoys beets as well.
