CABBAGE
Iredgrncabbagex-56a495175f9b58b7d0d7ae20.jpgf you are eating on a budget, cabbage might be the best bargain out there and it still is extremely easy to come by in the middle of winter. It also tastes just as great as it did in October, making it a prime candidate for winter eating.

 

 

WINTER GREENS
Kale, Collards, Radicchio, Endive, and Chard are some of the greens that shine during the winter months. Take advantage of their amazingly unique flavors and textures by enjoying them raw or cooked.

 

BEETS

From a healthy viewpoint, beet roots contain valuable nutrients that may help lower your blood pressure, fight cancer and inflammation, boost your stamina, and support detoxification. Try adding beet roots raw to salads or as part of your vegetable juice; beet greens can be sautéed with spinach or Swiss chard. I hope that beets are making their way into your kitchen more frequently.
