We’re kicking off January 2024 by bringing back one of my favorite GinRoe Cooks post series - Here’s WTF You Should Be Eating! Each month I’ll be sharing a handful of tasty ass seasonal food items you can include on your grocery list that will not only get you the best bang for your buck but will also take your meals to the next level.
Just like last year, we’re going to be devouring lots of root vegetables, leafy greens, citrus, & whole grains. They are in season aka full of flavor, in abundance, and are everything we need to get out of the heavy holiday meal mentality and start prepping to be healthy AF for summer.
Let’s start by boosting that immunity & detoxing those new year's drinks during these cold winter months with plenty of Vitamin C found in Citrus Fruits like lemon, limes, oranges, & grapefruit. Maximize the benefit by eating or drinking them raw or spice it up with a sexy dessert or another drink.
Check out this dope recipe for a Winter Citrus Salad from our friends at Once Upon a Chef!
Who doesn’t love a good Root Vegetable?! Warm, filling, easy to prepare, and goes with everything. Not to mention a few dollars go a long easy for a side dish that could easily be a main.
Shameless plug for one of my favorite recipe creations - Chicken & Root Vegetable Gratin. Perfect for a winter dinner.
You can never go wrong with nutrient-rich Leafy Greens on your plate. I know some people don't like the taste, and sometimes smells, of foods like cabbage or collard greens but when prepared well they can be extremely tasty and are a great source of Vitamins A, B C, & K.
Here's another easy dinner recipe for you to try using the goodness of leafy greens. Pork Chops & Collard Greens.
2024 can be a great year for food exploration, getting healthy, or indulging in the snacks you already love. Stay tuned for more posts like this to support you on that foodie journey and for new recipes to try.
