7 Expert Tips To Up Your Winter Nutrition Game

​Diet plays an integral part in staying healthy during winter. Here are some expert tips to help you up your winter nutrition game.

​1. Fibre Intake

​Up your fibre intake during the winter season. It is recommended that an adult consumes at least 30 g fibre every day.

​2. Antioxidants

​Antioxidants protect the body from damage caused by oxygen, peroxides and free radicals. Add foods high in antioxidants such as kidney beans, berries, and cinnamon to your daily diet.

​3. Vitamins and minerals

​Ensure you get plenty of these micronutrients as they contribute to immunity, help to heal wounds, maintain healthy bones, and more. Vitamin A, D, E, K and B complex are a few of the essential ones.

​4. Eat Light

​It is recommended to avoid foods that are too heavy, oily, deep fried, spicy and acidic in nature as they lead to vata and pitta (life forces) imbalance in the body.

​5. Herbal teas

​Natural and herbal teas such as lemon, ginger and green tea have anti-bacterial properties. They keep your body immune, soothe your sore throat, and fight other body disorders.

​6. Seasonal foods

​Opt for seasonal vegetables and fruits such as sweet apples, apricots, berries, cherries, coconut, dates, figs, melons, oranges, pears, papaya, pumpkin, beans, etc.

​7. Avoid heaty foods

​Fruits that are exceptionally heating or sour such as bananas, cranberries, and green grapes are best avoided.
