This wintry weather makes me want to curl up on the couch with a hot cup of tea and a juicy book! The colder months are the perfect time to really focus on what you are putting in your body. I know they are notorious for packing on the pounds, but if you are mindful about your cooking, this doesn’t have to be the case!
In fact, during the winter I find we stay in more, giving us the perfect opportunity to throw together nutritious family meals. When I cook for our family during the winter, I love to use grounding, healing ingredients that warm us up, heart and soul.
Prepare this healthy plant fiber-filled feast with us!
