The 5 Most Nutritious Winter Veggies

By Fitness Expert Julie Germaine for Kaizen Naturals

Does what you eat change throughout the seasons? Perhaps you enjoy soothing, hearty squash and potato soups in winter, but crave fresh salads come spring? Or what’s better than warm, fresh summer strawberries, or a tasty spiced pumpkin latté on a beautiful fall day?

Seasonal eating is very healthy for you, too! This can also be considered ‘eating local’, which supports your community and benefits your body since the produce is very recently harvested. As soon as fruits and vegetables are collected, they begin to lose nutrients. This means that something transported across seas arrives on your plate with less nutritional value than it had originally. You are also paying more for these travelled items, since the cost of the supply chain is left on the consumer.

To have the best options to eat seasonally in the winter, you should plan in the summer. Preserving items in their peak brings wonderful flavour to your table all winter! Don’t purchase off-season items from the grocery store for this, but use those picked at their intended ripeness in their natural environment so they are bursting with optimal nutrients.
