An important factor in maintaining a healthy body and immune system in winter is consuming seasonal fruit and vegetables. Lucky for us the season boasts some amazing fresh produce superstars.
Seasonal produce is both more flavoursome and has the vitamins and antioxidants to prevent those sniffles and fight the flu. So listen up and take notes because we’ve got the insider tips on winter fruits and vegetables from the man himself, Tom of The Standard Market Co.
It looks like we should be reaching for the greens this season. Broccoli and broccolini are in abundance and because of this Tom hints that we’ll be seeing great deals, so keep your eyes open! Another green that’s in season but a lot leafier is the superfood kale. And if you love a baked dinner you’ll be happy to know that we’ll be seeing a more of it’s favourite side; brussel sprouts.
As for fruit we want you to reach for those citrus fruits. Navel oranges are at their juiciest in winter. It’s well known that oranges pack a Vitamin C punch so get juicing to defend your health.
