Yes! The go-to medicine for anything and everything in an Indian home. We don’t recognise you as an Indian if you didn’t have ginger tea or Kada to kill your cold or fever!  

Ginger has unique healing properties with a pungent and hot taste that helps you combat mild cold, sore throats and even bloating. It boosts your immunity and metabolism, increasing blood flow and digestion and is your best companion on cold days. 

  • Consume ginger in raw or powder form in any food/drink you prepare especially in winter. 
  • You can try having raw ginger root in hot water or simply putting some ginger in regular tea. 
  • You can also use ginger in curries, soups and in various cuisines to make the food a lip-smacking experience with a healthy twist. 

Honey:

Honey, I can’t stress enough the importance of adding honey to your diet!

As honey comes with many therapeutic benefits, it is widely consumed in our country to drive away colds, coughs and flu. It also cures digestive issues, boosts immunity and is used widely as a skin care product too. 

  • Honey as it is or consumed with salads, fruit bowls or other foods, helps you remain warm during the winters and provides you with the much-required mix of healthy minerals. 
  • Adding honey to your green tea, warm water or any flavoured tea can boost your immunity and metabolism.

PS: Pregnant ladies and lactating mothers also can consume honey, if they are not diabetic. Beware! Kids above one year old are allowed to consume honey.

Sorry vegetarians! But we have to say that meats are a legible option for winter as it is the powerhouse of iron and protein plus food that can keep you hot for a long. 

Non-vegetarians can have them in plenty during the winter months as it raises body temperature during metabolism. But remember it is best consumed as soups or curries rather than fried or roasted. It is a great source of energy for your kids too. 

Keeping you and your family warm and healthy has to be your priority now. But you can’t compromise on having delicious food, as winter comes with extra cravings. Don’t you think so? Add these five things to your diet and make lip-smacking yet healthy dishes out of them. Have plenty of them and enjoy the weather 🙂
