The seasonal food of November finds now its best month providing its best taste and scent; indeed, due to its high availability its price is much more affordable. To have a balanced diet we should eat varied foods that provide us with our needs of energy, carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, vitamins and minerals.
The consuming of fruits and vegetables is usually under recommended suggestions, for that reason we want to invite you to try these seasonal fruits and vegetables.
Citrus fruits will be our great allies during this month, a supply of vitamin C that will come in handy to keep us protected from colds. Lemons, oranges, tangerines, kiwis and apples are all great carriers of this vitamin. Other fruits that we will find at their best are persimmon, grapefruit, custard apple, pomegranate, pear, banana, grapes and mango.
Generally we recommend to eat them raw, but there are many recipes in which we can cook them. Our suggestion for some recipes are pears in wine and apple tarts for the youngest of the family.
