University of Illinois Extension Nutrition Expert Talks Healthy Winter Eating

ILLINOIS (RFD) — Getting quality fresh food can be tough this time of the year with so much produce out of season but a University of Illinois Extension nutrition expert has a few tips to get quality, healthy food.

With most of the country under the blanket of cold weather, finding quality fresh produce can be difficult. According to Caitlin Mellendorf, if the fresh produce section of the grocery store doesn’t have a lot of variety and leaves a lot to be desired, frozen or canned fruits and vegetables are a great alternative.

Citrus fruits are in season right now and Mellendorf says there’s plenty of good ways to get those incorporated in your meals. Lemons and kale are in season right now.
