The Pick Of Our January Root Vegetables

January - and winter as a whole - is all about root vegetables. Beetroot, celeriac, horseradish, (Jerusalem) artichokes, parsnips, swede/turnip and carrots all add colour and flavour to your cooking, and are ideal for making sure you kick start the year in the right way with lots of nutrition on your plate.

Getting Your Five A Day

You should always seek advice from professionals before you embark on any specific diet. But eating more vegetables as the New Year gets underway is a great way to ensure you get your Five A Day. Using fresh veg in ‘from scratch’ meals will help you feel like you’re making positive changes straight away, and it’s a big help when your resolution is to eat a more balanced diet in 2020.
