4 Tips for Eating Affordable Fruits and Vegetables this Winter

14 January, 2016 , ,

ALTERNATIVES TO FRESH PRODUCTS

You can sometimes get good deals on frozen fruits and vegetables. They retain their nutritional value and you simply have to include them properly in your daily diet. You should use the fruits to prepare smoothies and/or sorbets (for example a cantaloupe smoothie or quick berry sorbet) and vegetables to prepare soups.

Canned fruits are often available at great prices. The only problem could be the amount of added sugar. If you find peaches, you must try out our caramelised peaches recipe.

Vegetable juices are an interesting option, but watch the salt content.
And finally, don’t forget dry fruits, which can also be easily eaten as a snack (but don’t overdo it as they are full of calories!)
