As with any food, these superfoods are only as healthy as the ways in which they’re prepared, so do your best not to drench you sweet potatoes in butter, and maybe avoid dipping your apples in caramel. (Okay, caramel apples at state fairs and festivals are totally acceptable. It’s tradition!) Also, whenever possible, consider going organic for all of these foods, except perhaps the root vegetables. Fruits like apples and pears get heavy pesticide use and covered in a wax to make them more appealing to shoppers. We’d rather just buy organic and not worry about that.

Without further ado, Wably’s top 15 superfoods for Fall.
