Health Minute: Winter White Foods

Health experts recommend that adults eat about 2 cups of fruits and up to 3 cups of vegetables each day.
We often hear, the more colorful your produce, the healthier. But winter whites - fruits and vegetable that are pale in color arepacked with healthy nutrients as well.

Veggies such as white potatoes, cauliflower, turnips, onions, garlic and even parsnips - which look a lot like a white carrot.

And though potatoes often get a bad rap, it's what we put on them, not the vegetable itself that's an issue.

Moore says garlic contains a compound that has been shown to reduce the risk for prostate and stomach cancer. And onions have nutrients that help with digestion.

And when it comes to winter white fruits, top of the list are the pale flesh fruits such as apples and pears.

We can get most produce year round, but when we buy what's in season it's usually cheaper and tastes better.
