Peak Winter Produce to Stock in Your Kitchen
Oh, the weather outside is frightful... but don't worry, your produce can still remain delightful.

Your favorite spring and summer fruits like strawberries and raspberries are farther from your reach as they continue to rise in price.

However, this does not give you an excuse to head to the bakery, chip or ice cream aisle and completely drop your positive attitude on maintaining a healthy diet during the dark days of winter.

Knowing which veggies and fruits are readily available during the cold months is crucial.

For example, one fruit that gets overlooked are pears. Loaded with vitamin C and fiber, this fruit can spice up your morning oatmeal or your sad looking salad and can be eaten as a dessert when paired with cheese or (in moderation of course) dark chocolate.

Internationally renowned registered dietitian, Ashley Koff, RD, shares which delicious produce is available during the winter months, and how you can incorporate these healthy foods into your diet.
