This time of year, it can be hard for some of us to get in all the recommended servings of fruit and vegetables. Summer makes it so easy, with farmers markets and backyard gardens offering up more produce than we know what to do with. In the summer we’re likely to eat at least one huge salad every day, as well as our weight in berries and stone fruit.

But winter is another story, and that story is sad. So tell us, readers: how do you snack on fruits and vegetables in the winter? What recipes, tips, or bits of advice help you keep an inspired grasp on healthy snacking this time of year?

Do you eat clementines to ad nauseam? Rely on smoothies made from produce frozen in season? Throw seasonality to the wind and just buy whatever you’re craving? Give us your thoughts in the Comments section.
