5 Foods Winter Foods To Keep You Warm & Happy*


When winter arrives we want to snuggle under the covers and watch movies all day long. The chilly winter weather affects more than just your wardrobe and heating bill. Your body also experiences changes in energy levels, metabolism and even food preferences. With that we want to enjoy delicious warm foods that make us feel comfortable and cosy. Everyone has their favourite winter dish and here are few of my favourites.


Chilli con carne will not only keep you warm but it is perfect for packing in your veggies and protein  The beans in chilli con carne can help build muscle and the tomatoes in the dish are rich in antioxidants which will keep you healthy also; and even better you can cook it in a slow cooker. Throw the ingredients into the slow cooker in the morning, and it will be ready for you at dinner time.

Soup & stews are a wonderful comfort food for colder days. Soups are one of the best ways to keep yourself warm during winters. Spicy and hot soups, like minestrone or pumpkin full and well-nourished, the addition ofcroutons or dumplings also amps up the comfort factor
 
Coconut oil is full of healthy fats, which turn into fuel. It helps your metabolism which produces energy that makes you feel warm. Make sure you pick a coconut oil that is raw and organic my favourite to use is from Lucy Bee. It is fair trade and is gluten and lactose free, with no additives or preservatives.

Hot drinks, yes I know technically it's not a food, however  hot drinks are also thoroughly enjoyed on colder days. Although it's not a dish it is usually enjoyed after a meal. Hot chocolate, coffee and tea warm every part of your body in a superbly tasty way

Porridge, nothing beats a steaming bowl of porridge. It is thought to be one of the best winter warmers. As well as being heathy and filling porridge oats can help lower cholesterol, and is not just for breakfast time

So those are some of my favourite winter food I enjoy on those colder winter days. What are your go to winter foods?
