Vanessa, What would be the best recommendation for a winter diet?
At this time of the year we need to boost our immune system and bring heat to our bodies. We could start by eating foods that provide heat: soups, creams, broths and stews slowly cooked.
Food is closely related to the warm energy we receive, so we should choose local and seasonal foods.
Best winter foods
Apart from root vegetables (beets, parsnips, turnips, rutabagas, carrots, yuca, kohlrabi, onions, garlic, celery root…), there are others that will help us to prevent flu, for example… parsley, berries, pomegranate, brussels sprouts, broccoli, watercress …
On the other hand, it would be interesting to introduce foods for our immune system, such as mushrooms and probiotics found in miso, sauerkraut, kombucha …
Including spices like garlic and ginger is also a great tip.
