Warm Winter Foods
As the winter months approach, it's important to focus on nourishing, warm foods that can help keep us healthy and comfortable during the colder weather. Here are some examples of foods that are particularly well-suited for the winter season:
Soups and stews: These hearty, warm dishes are perfect for cold winter days. They're easy to make, and you can customize them to your liking by adding a variety of vegetables, grains, and proteins.
Root vegetables: Root vegetables, such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, parsnips, and beets, are in season during the winter months and make for great additions to soups, stews, and roasts. They're also a good source of fiber and nutrients.
Squashes: Winter squashes, such as acorn, butternut, and spaghetti squash, are a great source of vitamins and minerals, and they can be roasted, mashed, or turned into soups and stews.
Citrus fruits: Oranges, grapefruits, and other citrus fruits are in season during the winter, and they're a good source of vitamin C, which can help boost the immune system. Remember no citrus if you already have existing phlegm.
