As we begin to move on from the festive period where most of us enjoyed more than our fair share of candy and chocolate, it’s time to get back into sensible eating habits. A variety of fruit and vegetables are in season during winter, some of them you may not have expected.

By increasing your intake of fresh produce, you can get into top nutritional shape before the cold and flu bugs attack. Here, we list three awesome winter superfoods that will do just that and will also save you money in the process:

1. Sweet Potatoes

A holiday classic, sweet potatoes contain a large amount of vitamin A. In fact, one serving of a pack is more than seven times your daily vitamin A needs. They can be used in a variety of dishes, such as a topping with peppers on top of a Spanish salad. Alternatively, add chicken and goats cheese to change it from a side dish into a main course. Cooked sweet potatoes are also great when served with light butter or simply plain.

2. Brussels Sprouts

Although you can find them all-year round, sprouts peak in mid-winter, meaning you’ll be able to pick them up for cheaper in the cold months. They’re packed full of vitamin C, fiber and anti-oxidants, which are all great for improving overall wellbeing. Why not try roasting them with salt, olive oil and pepper to help them retain their nutrients and other healthy goodness. Or, turn it into a winter Brussels sprouts salad by adding apples, cranberries and walnuts.

3. Fennel

You might tend to pass over this veggie at the supermarket without even noticing. Fennel looks like a mix of white onion and celery and is a good source of vitamin C, potassium, fiber and folate. In terms of cooking it, slice and sauté over a low heat until it softens and then add to turkey steaks or burgers. However if that doesn’t take your fancy, try chucking it into a kale salad.
