Herbal Healing in Winter Part 1
Winter can be a depressing times of illness, unpleasant weather and very little growth, but you can avoid the winter blues by making the most of what’s available.
You burn lots of extra energy in the winter simply to maintain body temperature.
- Regular, well balanced meals help you keep warm and maintain vitality. It’s natural for mammals to put on a little extra fat for insulation but, with modern central heating, there is no need to pile on the pounds.
- Keep your immune system in working order with seasonal fruits and vegetables. Spice them up by currying root vegetables or stir-frying cabbage. Ward off winter colds and flu by adding onions, garlic or leeks to stews. Nutritious and warming stews are simple to prepare and provide well balanced nutrition, as well as warming you from the inside out.
Stir fry cabbage with your choice of other winder vegetables for an alternative warming experience.
