It is easy to get caught up in indulgence in winter, isn’t it? I know that the warmth of a cup of tea at night with a couple of dark chocolates is a real treat…or those hearty stews with mashed potato and extra rice with your stir fry.
The thing about winter is that it is cold and our body needs more energy to keep warm, it is working harder to keep our outer limbs from freezing…but it isn’t necessarily a good excuse to over eat!
What our body needs is additional nutrition – quality instead of quantity.
Now is the time when you should be adding in some super foods (raw cacao, goji berries, acaci) and stocking up on plenty of fruit and vegetables to keep your vitamin and mineral count up.
If you are going to indulge, indulge in food that is going to do you good, rather than harm!
In my food coaching practice I support people to make these changes, provide cooking lessons, recipes and advise about how to avoid winter weight gain and achieve instead winter health gain!
I would love to support you to change your health outcomes with good food!
