As the days get shorter, the weather cooler and the kids get back to hitting the books, it’s time to shake up your daily nutritional regimen to include foods that are nutrient-dense to provide you with more energy.

We recently had the good fortune to sample some of the Nutiva family of products ( , including their hemp seeds, coconut oil, unrefined palm oil and o’coconut treats. Check out the health foods section of your favorite supermarket and add these to your repertoire this autumn. You can also order Nutiva products directly online. Hemp seeds make a tasty addition to breakfast smoothies and hot cereals like oatmeal, coconut and palm oil are great for using in baked good recipes, sauteing and cooking, and the O’Coconut treats are positively addictive.
