Winter Citrus Helps With Healthier Habits | Columns

We need to keep that promise we made to ourselves and our families at our New Year’s Eve gathering – to eat healthier in 2023. No joke friends – with so many viruses, colds, allergies, cases of COVID and whatever else is lurking in the air – we mean business. Today we are talking about all kinds of fruit: fresh, canned and frozen. If you walked into my kitchen right now, you’d find a fruit bowl on my table with pears, oranges, and apples. There are grapes and grapefruit in the refrigerator drawer. In the kitchen cabinet there is both dried fruit and canned fruit. This has been practiced throughout my life – from my childhood to my married life to my retirement life. Growing up my father always brought home fruits and vegetables from the markets and my older brothers, who drove long haul trucks, brought fruits and vegetables from the south.
