Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day 
or a Recipe of the Day

Life with winter foods is about so much more than food: it's about healthy eating and weight control when fresh produce is less available and it's difficult to get outside!

Life with Winter Foods!

As the seasons change, the way life is done, changes too. Seasonal fruits and vegetables come and go. Winter foods like soups, replace salads. Crockpot meals just sound better than an outdoor grilled meal. The more you can cook and eat seasonally, the easier it will be to keep your budget and weight under control.

Find out more about Winter Foods from Kerry's Healthy Diet Habits website!
