GettyHealth-conscious people do not generally embrace winter weather-it's hard to stay fit during dark days with holiday gorging and the constant temptation to hibernate. A lack of great produce doesn't help, but there actually are some fruits and veggies that reach their prime this time of year, and they could very well give the season a good name again. Sub them in for your favorite summer superfoods, and before you know it, you'll be pining away for next winter.
If You Like: Green Beans
Try: Collard Greens
Rethink your greens. This underused veggie contains more than your recommended daily dose of vitamins A and K, antioxidant compounds that strengthen your immune system and help ward off winter colds. Plus, one serving contains 7.6 grams of fiber, which, according to the Department of Agriculture, can lower your body's absorption of calories from carbs. The best part, though?

One member of an adorable marsupial trio has been released into the Australian wild by the wildlife organization that rescued her.
Earlier this month Peggy the wombat was reintroduced to her natural habitat, and BBC's Natural History Unit filmed the release. Peggy will be featured in a 2014 BBC documentary on orphaned wildlife.
"Peggy will be monitored quietly and from a distance," said Alistair Brown, founder of Wild About Wildlife, the organization that rescued Peggy.
"She will be provided with supplementary feed while she learns all about her new environment."
Peggy and her friends - Anzac, a baby kangaroo, and Cupcake, a baby wallaby - made headlines when Wild About Wildlife posted photos of the unlikely trio.
Both Peggy and Anzac were 3 to 4 months old when their mothers were killed by vehicles. They were rescued by wildlife rehabilitators in the state of Victoria and even shared aRead More »from Insanely Cute Marsupial Trio Begins Return to the Wild
