Why should we prefer winter vegetables from the region?
The term winter vegetables does not come from harvesting the vegetables in the winter. More specifically, these are the vegetable varieties that the farmer harvested in the autumn and which keep fresh throughout the winter. It is said that in every latitude the right thing grows and matures for people. And what we mean by the”right”are all nutrients, which are closely linked to the climatic characteristics and keep the people from the region fit, healthy and strong. Many supermarket chains try to have a corner with regional vegetables, but you can be sure if you shop directly from the farmers in the weekly markets.

All of the listed varieties are nutritious and yet very low in calories, which makes them a popular and healthy meal.
