When it comes to winter, most of us only think about those mouth-watering holiday meals that come along with Christmas dinner and other family gatherings. But that shouldn’t be all. As the temps drop, there everyday foods that should also be on your radar that are as tasty as they are good for you during the cold season. Here are a few foods that are best to eat in the winter.
Soup. Yes, you can have soup throughout the year, but having a cup or bowl full during the winter is a blessing when you need to warm up–not to mention when you have the sniffles! Plus, there are so many winter-themed soups that you can only get at this time.
Citrus. Fruits are said to be at their sweetest and juiciest during the winter, so make sure that you’re stocking up. Go ahead and add some oranges or grapefruit to your shopping cart for a much-needed Vitamin C boost.
Oatmeal. Another year-round treat that is especially good and good for you in the winter is oatmeal. Packed full of vitamins to help you stay healthy as well as other nutrients and antioxidants, oatmeal is a food that you don’t want to skip when the temps drop.
Seasonal veggies. Not all vegetables taste the same depending on the season. That’s why you need to indulge yourself with some winter faves like brussel sprouts and winter squash while it’s chilly outside. Not only are they delicious, but they’re packed with tons of vitamins, too!
