Winter’s Super Foods


Winter’s Super Foods


Is winter over yet? In chill, dreary times like these it is easy to forget that there are still fruits and vegetables coming into season. Eating seasonal produce is a great way to vary your diet and it saves money because fruits and vegetable cost less when they are in season. To help you pick the best winter has to offer, I have compiled a list of my favorites.

Pears

Full of fiber and potassium, pears also contain the antioxidant quercetin which prevents cancer and damage to arteries.

Citrus

High in vitamin C which not only supports your immune system to fend off winter colds, but is also a powerful antioxidant.

Brassicas

This family of vegetables includes broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, brussel sprouts. While all are good sources of vitamins, what makes this family special are its detoxifying abilities. Brassicas contains sulphoraphane and glucosinolates which help your liver’s detoxification processes.

Sweet potatoes

Packed with vitamin A, vitamin C as well as a great source of potassium and manganese. Sweet potatoes also have a lower glycemic index than white potatoes. The best part about these is how many ways you can cook them.

Root vegetables

Think rainbow carrots, beets, parsnips and turnips. Root vegetables grow in soil making them good sources of essential minerals. Beets are one of the best foods you can put in your body. They are a natural source of nitrates which allow more oxygen into the bloodstream, they are a liver cleanser, and they are an excellent energy source.
