Winter is often a time when healthy eating behaviours go out the window.
Check out my 3 simple tips below to ensure your health remains a top priority.
1. Add spices to your cooking:
Spices such as fresh turmeric and ginger or ground curry, cinnamon, nutmeg and paprika warm the body from the inside by stimulating the metabolism and regulating blood sugar levels.
Top roasted sweet potato with goats cheese and ground cinnamon for an immune boosting delight.
2. Drink herbal teas:
Ingredients such as lavender, rose petals, peppermint, chamomile and lemon grass enhance digestion and gut health. This is crucial for immune health and warding off colds and flu’s
3. Keep salads on the menu:
As the temperature plummets it’s common to neglect salad vegetables such as cucumber, tomato, lettuce, celery, radish, and capsicums.
These vegetables provide important antioxidants to the body, they are high in water and fibre and should therefore be consumed all year round. I combine braised mushrooms, roasted carrots and rainbow beets with mixed lettuce leaves, cucumber and tomato.
The end result is a beautiful fulfilling and warm salad.
