In this segment, Alia will expand on the following tips:

·         Use fresh, seasonal ingredients: the best fruits and veggies to cook with this time of year.

·         Better-for-you sauces: how to tweak ingredients to lighten up our favorite sauce and gravy.

·         Sneak in healthy ingredients: whether you add kale and shaved brussel sprouts to the salad or put crudité on the charcuterie board, try to incorporate raw vegetables into sides and appetizers.

·         Look local: some of the best produce can be found at local farmers markets well into November.
