Several ideas include:

  • Making roasted winter vegetables!  Cookie Sheet @ 400 degree oven for about 30 minutes with olive oil, salt and pepper
  • Making vegetable soup or stews
  • Fixing up “faux potatoes” using steamed cauliflower
  • My family LOVES stir-fried cabbage & carrots seasoned with salt, pepper & turmeric
  • Make spaghetti squash instead of using pasta, add sauce and enjoy 
  • Add raw kale to a smoothie
  • Sauté any of those veggies/greens with fresh garlic cloves and olive oil

WHY Winter Veggies?

  • Kale: high in Vitamins K, A, C & B + minerals and antioxidents
  • Sweet Potatoes: high in Vitamin A & C, Potassium and fiber
  • Broccoli: powerful antioxidants, minerals & fiber
  • Brussel Sprouts: high in Calcium, fiber, potassium, folate, and Vitamins C & K
  • Cabbage: Vitamin C, K, Manganese + antioxidants
  • Cauliflower: high in Carotenoids, fiber, Folate and Potassium
  • Carrots: Excellent for Vit A and Carotenoids, Vit K, Potassium, Thiamine, Niacin + Fiber
  • Parsnips: high fiber, Vitamin C and Magnesium
  • Beets: these can help Blood Pressure! Good Fiber, Manganese, Potassium, iron & Vit C
