It's a new year, which for many of us means a new (or at least a renewed) focus on healthy eating. Fortunately, the drop in temps doesn't mean the fruit and veggie aisles are bare. Far from it! Now that January's in full-swing, there are plenty of good-for-you, in-season options just waiting to be scooped up and worked into your daily meals.

So check out our list of six January superfoods that make for a great way to ring in the new year. Any favorites we forgot? Let us know!

Why we love them:
The clementine, another seasonal superfood, is everywhere this time of year, but oft-overlooked tangerines are also plentiful and pack a serious nutritional punch. They're sweet, slightly tangy and a good source of Vitamin C (according to Livestrong, nearly 40 percent of the amount the Food and Drug Administration recommends you consume daily ).

How to enjoy them:
Just peel and go! Tangerines are a great snack food and are also nice for a bit of sweet juiciness in winter salads.
