Frequently, discussions about the holidays focus on limiting portions and what you shouldn’t be eating. Instead, let’s focus on nutritionally why you should be eating various holiday delights!
Sweet Potatoes, Butternut Squash and Pumpkin
The bright orange flesh of these vegetables provides a rich source of fiber, vitamins A and C, and manganese.
This vegetable has a licorice flavor and is a source of B-vitamins, vitamin C and potassium. It is not as well-known and used as other vegetables. The holidays are a great time to try some new foods!
