raspberryiesQ: I’m trying to eat healthy, but there isn’t much fresh fruit available in the winter. Any other options?

You’re right. The fresh fruit options can be pretty limited this time of year, depending on where you live and what your grocery store offers. But, frozen fruit is also delicious and great for you. Most stores offer a nice selection of frozen berries, pineapple, peaches, and other fruits.

Just let it thaw and eat it, or add it to recipes. Canned fruit is a good option, too, but be sure to choose the kind that is in the fruit’s natural juices. Avoid cans with heavy syrup— they include too much added sugar and empty calories. Give these options a try and hang in there—the spring and summer fruits will be here before you know it!”
