Winter food

Published by on November 17th, 2019.

Boiled food is one of the best options for winter.

Have plenty of soup, stews, and broths made of winter foods. Carrots, beets, green leafy vegetables as well as other root-basedvegetables are extremely beneficial and canbe had steamed or otherwise.

Food we eat in the winter season should always be warm.

What do you think of when someone mentions winter? Heavy, itchy woollen clothes? Chapped lips and cracked heels? Sure winter is all of this, but did you also know that winter is the best season to improve immunity? During this time, people feel hungrier.

Amazingly, the body engine works better in the winter and foods are better digested. This aids in providing more nourishment to the body.

Foods To Warm In Winter

In winter, our body craves for rich food which provides warmth along with nourishment. We need warming foods to satisfy this craving.

Any vegetable that takes time to grow, and in which the edible part grows beneath the surface of the ground is usually warming and a good vegetable to eat in winter.

Certain dry fruits (dates), nuts and oilseeds (sesame seeds) are also warming. It is also a time of the year when you may want to eat more spices than in the summer months.

All animal foods fall into the warming category, including lean dairy, meat, fish and poultry.

Whole-grain cereals, proteins and healthy fats too provide much-needed energy to keep warm.

The most warming vegetables that are good for your body are root vegetables like carrot, potato, onions, garlic, radish, yams, sweet potatoes, beets, turnips, etc, and hearty winter greens like palak, methi, sarson, muli, pudina, etc.

Carrots (‘gajar-ka-halwa’, ‘gajar-ka-ras’, ‘gajar-shalgam-ke-achaar’): The beta-carotene in carrots is an excellent source of vitamin A and a powerful anti-oxidant.

White radish, onion and garlic (dry and spring varieties): Rich in isothiocyanates and indoles, phytochemicals that help prevent cancer.

Their strong flavour helps to pep up the taste of food.

Potatoes and yams: Help to provide much-needed energy.

Other vegetables: Green beans (broad beans, valol, papdi) and peas: these are all high energy and high-protein vegetables.

Whole Grain Cereals And Pulses :High energy and protein foods provide the required fuel to combat the cold.

Fresh And Dried Fruits

Papaya and pineapple are believed to provide warmth.

Amla is loaded with Vitamin C, and is very good to step up your immunity.

That’s the reason why ‘amla juice’ and ‘amla muraba’ are available in plenty during winter.

Dates are warm in nature and are highly recommended in the winter months.

Not only are they a good source of fibre, iron, magnesium, calcium and vitamins (C and B3), they are also a good source of energy.

Keeping Healthy In Winter

The cold weather can interrupt your workout routine and can even send you on a mood roller coaster that can lead to overeating due to stress and boredom.

Include proteins as well as carbohydrates in your diet.

This will help balance serotonin, a calming brain chemical, and will not trigger low blood sugar-induced hunger pangs.

The best balance is one-third protein and two-thirds vegetables and salads.

Pay attention to your lifestyle, too. Staying up late, working at night, eating at irregular times, exposing the body to stress and fatigue, and sleeping during the day can all affect the digestive and body rhythms – and thus compromise rather than strengthen the immune system.

So this year, spend the cold season staying warm and healthy.
