Grab the recipe with the top 10 autumn and winter nutrition tips :)
The darker mornings can also make it harder to jump out of bed and outdoor exercise starts to feel most unappealing! A lack of sunshine can reduce the production of vitamin D and none of your skin is exposed enough to benefit from the short supply of sunshine that there is! One of the ways to ensure you’re feeling fit and energetic is through your diet.
These easy-to-follow nutrition tips will help you boost your circulation, immune system, energy, and wellbeing.
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.
Avoid a lot of cold, heavy foods during autumn and winter. Think warming food such as casseroles, stews, soups and curries, witр, beans or lentils and plenty of vegetables.
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.
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.
Reishi, oyster and shiitake mushrooms have antiviral and antibacterial properties, and are rich in protein, potassium, calcium, magnesium and B vitamins. Try fresh or dried in soups and casseroles.
Boost your immune system by eating foods such as avocados, blueberries, chillies, citrus fruits, dark chocolate. You can also help to ward off viruses, bugs and toxins by eating food rich in vitamins and minerals, such as lean beans and lentils.
Use supplements that can help boost energy, immunity and wellbeing including ginseng, Vitamin C, Echinacea, Omega 3 fats, Vitamin D , elderberry, probiotics and zinc.
Try to reduce sugary foods and drinks, alcohol, and processed and junk foods, which can deplete energy and our immunity.
Increase your hydration levels! Keep drinking water. Centrally heated houses and cold outdoor weather can parch our skin and our bodies.
