The chill weather of autumn combined with two food-fueled holidays, Halloween and Thanksgiving, can make eating healthy during fall harder than when fresh fruit and vegetables are practically begging to be eaten in spring and summer.

But fall is full of its own special brands of superfoods, including one of our favorites, especially when in seasonal latte form: Pumpkin.

Check out our So Fresh & So Green list of our Top 10 Fall Superfoods (& Why They Are Good For You). Add them to your normal carb-filled cold weather diet and you can easily eat cheaper, more seasonally, and more conscientiously.

Kale is one of our favorite all-around greens. Added to a white bean soup, grilled, made into chips, shredded and raw in salads, this dark, leafy green is a versatile and nutrient-packed addition to any meal.

Kale has tons of Vitamin K (for blood and bones) , beta-carotene (for your eyes) and immune  boosting antioxidants.
