Winter Blues? Tip #3

Good Eats

Although I am not usually a big fan of turnips, I recently discovered how tasty they can be in a slow cooker soup with butternut squash, potato, onion and pear.  Yes, I said pear!  We have learned more and more that there is a strong connection between our physical health and our mental well-being.  Nourishing yourself with fresh healthy foods, including a variety of vegetables, grains and lean protein is a great way to combat the winter blues.  If you enjoy cooking, take this opportunity to try a new recipe with a winter vegetable.   Even if you don’t enjoy cooking…look for easy ways to get a variety of vegetables into your meals.
