5 Great Winter Foods & How to Eat Them

Kid-Approved Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts are admittedly a hard sell for many. But if you haven’t eaten them roasted, it’s worth a try – caramelized, there’s something truly special about their crispy leaves. A serving of Brussels sprouts (about seven) contains more potassium than a banana, as much vitamin C as a glass of orange juice and four grams of filling fiber. Not too shabby.

Perfect Brussels Sprouts Recipe


Mashed Cauliflower

Many think of cauliflower as a lighter version of broccoli. They’re related but really shouldn’t be thought of as equivalent. Even though cauliflower is an excellent source of vitamin C, you won’t find it in EWG’s guide to Good Food on a Tight Budget. It just can’t compete with its other cousins on nutrient merits alone, and it tends to be a little pricey. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t deserve space on your plate. Variety is important for your health and happiness, and some creamy mashed cauliflower can mix up a midwinter mashed potato routine quite nicely. It also absorbs flavors well and makes for a savory, smoky side dish.
