Wellness Captain Winter Superfoods

  1. Citrus fruits

Am I the only one who associates the smell of oranges with Christmas? Anyway, if you’re looking for a healthy snack that keeps you hydrated too, citrus fruits are the best winter option.

These fruits basically burst with vitamin C, a crucial micronutrient for strong immunity and healthy bones. Whether you like oranges, grapefruits, lemons or other alternatives, all varieties are high in minerals and phytochemicals (plant-based chemicals known for reducing cancer risks).

For a delicious experience, you should opt for navel and blood oranges because they naturally become ripe during the coldest months of the year.

 

  1. Brussels Sprouts

According to Shapiro, Brussels sprouts are one of the best cruciferous veggies to enjoy during winter. Aside from being a great source of vitamins K and C, this type of sprouts is also rich in folate, manganese, vitamin B6 and potassium.

If you’re usually including these veggies to your Thanksgiving menu, you probably already know they’re harvested in late fall. One of the most delicious ways to enjoy them is by tossing halves in avocado oil, sea salt and pepper; roast them in the oven and you get the ideal side dish for a balanced lunch or dinner!
