Winter Vegetables

Our winter vegetable recipes provide nutritious, warming comfort for a cold day.

The case for eating more fruits and vegetables gets stronger almost daily. Research suggests that eating more of these gifts from Mother Nature can help lower your bad cholesterol, help maintain healthy blood pressure, reduce inflammation, and strengthen your immune system.

By replacing higher calorie foods with naturally lower calorie fruits and veggies you can even lose weight without feeling deprived.

Winter can appear to be fairly bleak in the produce aisles, but by choosing abundant local in-season root vegetables, squashes, cabbages, and apples you’ll save money, support your local farmers, and reduce your carbon footprint.

Adding a vegetable soup or salad to either your lunch or main meal is a great way to increase your consumption of those all-important, nutrient-dense, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables.

Changing the constellation of our plates can lead to a healthier weight and a slimmer tummy by

  • increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables we eat
  • reducing the amount of animal protein to 3 oz (75 g) per serving
  • limiting potatoes, pasta, and rice to 1/2 cup (125 mL) per serving
