Even in the depths of winter, sometimes all you crave is something fresh and green—especially right after the holiday daze of heavy meals. 

It's just as important over the winter months to aim for five to eight daily servings of fruits and vegetables, notes Troy Mueller, registered dietitian with Carilion Clinic

"Find out what's in-season in your region—in-season winter produce can include greens, grapes, mushrooms and root vegetables—and stock up on those," suggests Troy. "You can always freeze the extra."
