Enough vegetables to make a pretty salad

If winter rhymes with austere, it is not necessarily useful to be it during meals. As the manger bouger site  developed by Santé Publique France, reminds us , there are many seasonal vegetables in winter.

Beetroot, endive, cabbage of all kinds, lamb’s lettuce, carrot, radish or Jerusalem artichoke can diversify the dishes. Then come the broccoli, spinach or turnips too often associated with the expression of disgust in children when there are many ways to cook them to make them delicious for young and old.

Finally, we should not miss the leek, pumpkin, squash or watercress, which can bring variety until the arrival of spring weather.

Fruits to fill up on vitamins

Contrary to popular belief, it is not difficult to reconcile local consumption with abundant fruit in winter.

Two examples, stars of the early bird shelves: clementine and kiwi. But behind these two sources of vitamins of all kinds hides other treasures. On the citrus side, we find notably mandarin, grapefruit, lemon but also oranges.

As Greenpeace notes in its long list of seasonal fruits and vegetables, winter is also a good time to taste apples, pears and even dry almonds.

Something to awaken the taste buds of the most gourmet and invent local and delicious recipes. And all this while eating 5 fruits and vegetables a day!
