GET FRESH this winter with crisp winter salads, making champions of bitter leaves, nuts, citrus fruits and wonderful winter vegetables.
Personally I like to slow things down in my kitchen during winter. I get my slow cooker out. I love to roast and bake for maximum cosiness. I make hearty pies and comforting healthy soups. This type of food will warm you from head to toe.
Below is a list of my favourite winter fruits and vegetables. So please treat your taste buds to the fabulous flavours of winter:
- Kiwi fruit
- Jerusalem artichokes
- Brussel sprouts
- Broad beans
As the temperature drops you need extra calories to keep you warm. Eat nutritious food to boost your immunity but avoid consuming extra calories.
Fun food fact:
Pumpkins are labelled as vegetables but they contain seeds and are technically fruit.
Stay warm this winter!
