We’ve discussed the benefits of eating seasonally but just to highlight a couple KEY reasons why it’s the best way to eat:
- Fresh seasonal produce is CHEAPER…so don’t give me that B.S. excuse that “eating healthy is too expensive”
- Food that is in season is actually more nutritious and simply tastes better
So with that being said I decided to do another “What’s In Season” post but this time for Winter Produce!
Winter is a very underrated season for fresh produce but did you know oranges, pears, grapefruit, brussel sprouts, kale, sweet potatoes, winter squash, broccoli, pomegranates, avocado…etc are all in season for Winter?
Ummm heck yes some of my all time favorite fruits and veggies!
I’ve been taking full advantage of all this awesome winter produce by having a sweet potato and avocado every morning with breakfast, an unhealthy amount of kale chips, making squash soups and have been baking grapefruit with a drizzle of honey for dessert (Yes, it’s BOMB).
Anyway…below is a full list of what’s in season for Winter.
- brussel sprouts
- winter squash
- collard greens
- sweet potatoes
What is your favorite winter fruit or veggie?
