Watercress (Watercress Pesto)
Winter squash (Kabocha Squash is finally back in season!!! Or, this is one of my favorite acorn squash recipes.)

Fruits and veggies are at the peak of flavor and nutrient content when they are eaten in season, so check out this list and incorporate them into your meals this month (I've included a few recipes for inspiration)! I'm going to be using this list to help me form my shopping lists over the next few weeks, as seasonal fruits and veggies are generally not only more flavorful, but less expensive as well.
