Less sunlight and more cloudy days means   cold , damp and heavy.

  • start your day with a great breakfast – nourishing oatmeal
  • now is the time where you can truly enjoy a cup of spicy chai.
  • spices for a winter chai – dry ginger, cinnamon, clove, black pepper, cardamon, turmeric, pippali, licorice,
  • herbs and spice that are warming and stimulating are fantastic
  • I prefer adding turmeric to my chai or in foods generally as during this time flu and colds are common – these ingredients are anti bacterial and may protect you from infections.
