For some perplexing reasons, feeling cold and feeling hungry always go hand in hand. And as the temperature drops leaving us freezing to death, we usually go for having a soup or hot coco to keep us warm. However, we’re here to give you tips on how to face the cold outside by warming your body from the inside using healthy options. Here’re some healthy foods and drinks to warm you up during the winter
Matcha Tea. Take your tea game to the next level with this yummy green tea that will not only warm you up but also give you an energy boost.
- Whenever you find yourself curled-up-in-a-ball feeling cold it means that it’s time for some Chunky, spicy chili. Chili is fiber-rich meal that helps stabilizing your blood sugar and keep you feeling full and warm.
Peanut Butter Oatmeal. In the cold days, many would argue that there’s nothing as belly-warming as a bowl of oatmeal. To make it even more delicious, you could add 1/2 a mashed banana and 1 Tbsp of natural peanut butter.
Bean Soup. For all the ones out there who don’t have time to whip something up in their kitchen, we didn’t forget about you. On your way home stop by the supermarket and get a bean-based soup to warm you up. However, make sure to choose the healthy ones, to do so compare brands, and go with the one with the least sodium (ideally less than 400 mg) and the highest protein (about 5 g or more).
Ginger. Ginger has thermogenic properties that helps you stay warm in the cold days. You could throw this spice into a dish or soup; however, you’ll maximize your benefits if you eat the root raw.
To sum-up, instead of fighting over the limited space in front of the fireplace, make sure to try one of these foods or drinks to stay warm and survive the freezing days.
