Thanks to helpful!anon’s suggestion, here is a post all about different winter fruits and veggies, and the things they are good for.
Root veggies, like sweet potatoes, parsnips, turnips, carrots, rutabagas, just to name a few, are great to eat in the winter time, since this is when they grow the best. Most winter root vegetables are high in fiber which helps regulate your digestion, and offer such nutrients as vitamins A, C, and E, calcium, and iron.
Vegetables like turnips and sweet potatoes can be steamed and mashed as a healthier alternative to mashed potatoes.

Citrus fruits like oranges, clementines, grapefruit, and tangerines, as well as other fruit like kiwi, pears, and pomegranate are good winter fruit. Citrus fruit is high in vitamin C which of course is good for your overall health and may help fight off colds or sickness. Pears also contain dietary fiber and potassium.
Most of these fruits can be eaten by themselves, and pears and citrus fruits are also delicious in salads, but here are a few recipes that make other yummy fruit dishes.
