What to Eat in October

what to eat in october

Would you like to reflect nature in your meals? There is no better way to achieve that, than to eat seasonal produce! Not only do you enjoy the seasons to its fullest, it’s also more environmental-friendly (nothing has to be flown in from faraway places) and cheaper! Plus, it seems as if nature wants us to be healthy, by producing just what our body needs at that time of year.
Are you convinced already?


Here is an overview of this months top produce! Use it as you make your meal plan for this week.


While photographing some apples at my local market, I found this beautiful little butterfly. It was just sitting there, enjoying the sun. It didn’t seem to mind all the people and bustle all around him at all!

Small Copper / Lycaena phlaeasI think it’s a small copper or “kleine vuurvlinder” in Dutch (Lycaena phlaeas). If you think it’s something else, please let me know!

So, back to the food, here is this month’s overview of produces. There is still lots of fresh veggies available, so enjoy it while they are still here! I left out some more “winter-y” vegetables, for they are now only sparsely available, and will be much more abundant in upcoming months.

Good luck with your shopping this week (and month!), and have fun with all the delicious produce autumn has to offer us!

    Where I’m from in New York apples are the best in October! I love the Macoun variety and Honeycrisp is really popular as well. We actually still have local blueberries. This is the latest in the season that I can recall seeing them. Great post. Thanks.

      That’s great to hear! Apples are so delicious and versatile! Maybe you could even combine them in an apple-blueberry crisp or something.
      Anyway, thanks for your reply!
