10 Foods to Try in the New Year

These foods are packed with nutrition. Keep reading to learn how to add them to your regular diet.. Learn more at eVitamins, the largest online health UK superstore.

We're all about balance. While it's great to have weight loss and fitness goals to help you achieve optimal health, we believe in making lifestyle changes that will benefit you now and in the long run. That's why we think a perfect New Year's resolution is to add new fruits and vegetables to your routine to help you get the essential nutrients you need from whole foods. Changing up your diet often will help you stick to a more nutritious way of eating, helping you achieve -- and keep -- the body you may have been after all along.

These 10 foods are in season in January, making this month the perfect time to give them a try:

1. Celery Root -- Also known as celeriac, celery root is a natural source of fiber and has only 42 calories per serving. Celery root makes a wonderful soup when cooked and pureed, perfect for keeping warm in the winter.

2. Chicory -- Chicory greens are an easy way to get more vitamin A into your diet for eye health. You can sautee this bitter green with extra virgin olive oil and garlic for a vitamin-rich side dish.

3. Parsnip -- A root vegetable similar to a carrot, parsnips provide fiber along with vitamin C for immunity. Parsnips can be boiled and then pureed with herbs for a creamy side dish to accompany a lean protein.

4. Passion Fruit -- This incredible fruit offers more than 100 percent of your daily vitamin C and more than half your daily vitamin A per serving along with 25 g of fiber. Add passion fruit to a smoothie to start the day right.

5. Rutabaga -- In addition to your daily vitamin C, rutabaga, a root vegetable, also provides calcium for bone health and fiber for digestive regularity. Roast rutabaga in the oven to bring out some natural sweetness.

6. Turnip -- Turnips provide a good dose of vitamin C, which in addition to supporting the immune system, is needed for healthy skin that heals properly after injury. When cooking, you can use turnips in similar ways to a potato, due to their starchy texture.

7. Tangerine -- Also known as mandarin oranges, tangerines are abundant in antioxidants to fight off free radical damage. Tangerines make a delicious snack all on their own.

8. Jerusalem Artichoke -- One of the many beneficial things about Jerusalem artichokes is the protein they provide for lean muscle. Also known as sunchokes, you can roast Jerusalem artichokes in the oven to bring out their flavor.

9. Blood Orange -- Known for their deep red flesh, blood oranges are bursting with vitamin C. Enjoy a glass of fresh blood orange juice in the morning or use it to make a vinaigrette or marinade.

10. Pomegranate -- This is a reminder pomegranates are in season, offering up delicious flavor as well as fiber and vitamins C and K. Add the arils from pomegranate to a salad for a sweet and sour crunch.
