Eating healthy throughout the winter months can be challenging for many reasons, especially since food is a large part of most holiday celebrations.
One way to eat healthy is to go back to the basics and support your immune system by eating antioxidant-containing fruit and vegetables. Choose seasonal fruits and vegetables such as mandarins, pomegranates, oranges, cranberries, and root vegetables like carrots, parsnips, and sweet potatoes.
We crave carbs in the winter so it’s important to also choose nutritious whole grains and other healthy carbs like sweet potatoes, pumpkins, or squash instead of sugary options like cakes and cookies.
