Winter not only brings freezing temperatures, but an abundance of sniffles, coughs, colds and flues. So other than hiding at home until spring what’s a girl to do?
This week I’ll be giving suggestions for staying healthy this winter.
Here’s Tip #1: Eat
Load up on warm, hearty, nutrient rich foods that are abundant in winter and readily available. Eat lots of seasonal veggies and fruits that are loaded with vitamins and minerals the body needs to ward off the seasonal bugs.
Try root veggies like sweet potatoes, turnips, beets, and potatoes.
Try winter greens like kale, cabbage, escarole, collard greens, swiss chard, beet greens, and brussel sprouts.
Try fruits like clementines, oranges, grapefruits, tangerines, cranberries, and pomegranates.
I’ll be sure to include plenty of recipes that use these foods in the weeks to come. So, stay tuned!
