Warm and Nourishing YOU

  • 🌶 Incorporate warming spices such as cinnamon, cumin, turmeric, cloves, paprika, garlic, cayenne pepper, chili pepper flakes, and ginger. Think hot drinks, savory oatmeal, spicy chicken, shrimp, and tofu dishes.
  • 🍲 Prepare one or two larger meals over the weekend, to nourish you throughout the week. Your favorite curry dish would be a win.
  • 🧣Bundle up and get outside. Fresh air is mother nature’s gift to the soul.
  • 📚 Embrace the slowdown. Read one of the books on your list, listen to music, rewatch a favorite movie, or take a longer walk — inside or out.
  • 🙌🏾 Turn inward, listen to your thoughts, and challenge your negative ones. Change them into positive or neutral thoughts. Empower yourself to change them. You can do it!
  • 🍜 Choose hot meals as much as possible. Soups (see December post), stews, and roasting lots of veggies in the oven work great for lunch and dinner. Prep on Sunday and heat up during the week.
  • 🍵 For breakfast, switch out your cold cereal or yogurt, for some hot oatmeal, eggs, and other savory breakfast options.
