As the weather gets colder, it is natural for people to desire toasty foods to warm the crisp fall and winter days. Such delicacies associated with colder seasons are anything apple, hot lattes, hot chocolate, pumpkin flavors, cinnamon spiced, caramel dipped, soups and stews, and last but not least, Thanksgiving themed.

I asked a number of girls in my class what their favorite fall foods were and why. Nathalie Falcao said, “I really like a big honey baked ham because my family and friends have gotten together to eat that for years. It’s nice to spend time with other families from India. Plus, it’s the one time of the year you won’t get judged for eating excessively!”

When I asked Sydney Weis what her favorite fall food was, she exclaimed, “Sweet potatoes – they are my favorite fall veggie! I feel happy and warm when I eat them because they are a warm color.” It’s true, that most fall foods are warm colors, such as caramel, maroon, red, and orange. The warm colors appeal to our senses of eyesight and taste. So even though the warm months may be past, we can substitute the loss of external warmth with the inner warmth of fall and winter foods.
