It also opens the doorway to a lot of food items that are only available during this time of the year.
Here we are showing you a list of food items that you can grab during this time of year. This may solve the problem of what to serve at your New Year party.

5. Citrus foods
There is a myth that states you may catch a cold if you eat citrus foods during winters.

They are available in abundance during this time of year. You may easily get it in the form of juice at stores.
I will suggest both the raw and juiced form.
It is a taboo to consume beef at many parts of the country, but if it is allowed at your place, go for it as it contains high amount of protein.
It tastes great and contains nutritious benefits, especially vitamins.

9. Sweet Potatoes
One of the best things about winters is that it initiates the availability of sweet potatoes everywhere.
They are great for your health, contains 50-150 calories and 12-40 grams of carb. But don’t let the taste fool you, don’t consume it too much.
The long, pale, tapered root veggies are loaded with fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and folate. Like carrots, they have a slightly sweet, earthy flavor that goes well with nearly any winter soup, stew, or casserole.
