It seems like every season has a food. Fall is saturated with squash and apples, but what foods (besides Christmas cookies and hot cocoa) are winter treats? The Googler in me did a quick search and this slideshow from Fitness magazine shed some light on my quandary.
Turns out a lot of foods transcend fall and are winter-ripe too! Mushrooms, pears, squash, apples, figs, beets…
Today’s breakfast was a seasonally appropriate bowl of fall fun.
Oatmeal with pumpkin, Honeycrisp apple chunks and cinnamon protein powder.
I also made a hot mug of Yogi goji berry green tea to round out my breakfast.
