Finding fall foods

Food seems to have a season of its own. I find foods associated with fall tend to be hearty and concentrated in nutrients such as this kale and cabbage soup that has been a family favorite of my sisters for many years. It is loaded in vitamins it is nourishing it contains fluids through the hearty beef stock and it is a balanced meal that will provide energy.
