Foods that Provide Warmth and Hydration in Winters
Jan 17, 2018
Have you noticed that your appetite increases during winter? This is due to an increase in digestive activities when the weather is cold, as the body constantly needs energy for warmth and hydrate itself. Today, we are sharing foods and liquids that will help you fight cold weather and keep you safe from fever, dry skin and other winter health issues.
Green Veggies should be an essential part of your meal during winters. Veggies such as spinach, fenugreek (methi) and mustard (sarson) are rich in vitamins and antioxidants which help build immunity and keep you safe from the cold temperature.
Spices not only pep up your meals but are also an essential source of antioxidants that build up the body's resistance to external and internal threats. Use black pepper, carom seeds (ajwain), asafoetida (heeng) and cinnamon (dalcheeni) in your winter cuisines to perk up your defence and stay warm in winters.
Dry Fruits have a warming effect on our body. Quite often we have heard the warning from our grand parents about not eating too much of these tasty treats, that is because they do have a warming effect on our bodies. So, when the weather is cold, eating dry fruits such as dried figs, apricots and dates will provide natural warmth to your body.
Whole Grains such as wheat, corn flour, and pearl millet help our body in fighting the chilly weather. That is the reason we love to mix Makki ki Roti with Sarson da Saag during winters, don't we?
Natural Sugars such as jaggery and honey are a part of many winter medicines in Ayurveda. You can use them as a part of your daily diet as they are really good for your digestive system and help in balancing the sugar in your body.
Warm Water Drinks such as soups, coffee and tea also play an essential role in keeping you warm during winters. While drinking warm water during winters has its own set of benefits, you can use warm RO water to prepare several tasty drinks to keep yourself hydrated. Use water from your home water purifier to prepare herbal water, ginger tea, green tea, amla juice or aloe vera juice to keep your body warm and active.
