The colder months can make our hair, lips and face feel dry, so eat foods rich in moisture such as porridge, soups and stews to replenish lost fluids
Try to eat some seasonal food, such as parsnips, sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, beetroot and carrots. Seasonal food is fresher, has more nutrition, helps us keep in harmony with the environment and promotes our wellbeing.
Use some warming herbs and spices in your teas and cooking which can boost circulation. For example, try ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg or cloves
Stewed apples and pears are delicious and warming; perfect for this time of year. Add with some cinnamon to porridge or yoghurt for a nutritious breakfast treat
Try to reduce sugary foods and drinks, alcohol, and processed and junk foods, which can deplete energy and our immunity.
