Fall Food For Days

I love Fall & the healthy food that comes with it! Some of my favorites are dishes made out of pumpkin, apple, spaghetti squash, zucchini & Brussels sprouts. Below are some of my favorites! They are relatively easy to make too. Not to mention you will find a ton of Vitamin A in these dishes that do wonders for the skin:
