Healthy and Delicious Winter Foods

One of the most enjoyable parts of winter is all of the good food that you can make to eat! As the weather gets colder, many Canadians start enjoying heavier, warmer foods. Fall produce such as carrots, potatoes, cabbage, beets, sweet potatoes, leeks, and pears are ready to eat in the early winter, making them more affordable than other food at this time of year. Many families will enjoy these fruits and vegetables with meat such as chicken, beef, or pork, or legumes such as lentils and chickpeas, which are high in protein and make you feel full. Some people will use more cream, butter, or milk in their cooking at this time of year as well, making food taste richer. What are some foods that you eat in cold weather in your country?
