Winter foods principles

Winter foods therapy is using foods and cooking methods to align with the energetics of the season of Winter. The season of Winter is cold so our bodies call for warming foods, meals that have been cooked at low temperatures for a longer time. Adding heating spices such as cloves, peppercorns, ginger, cinnamon to a dish will increase the thermal nature of a meal .

Winter meal ideas

Meals for Winter foods therapy are slow cooked broths and dishes containing chicken, lamb, trout and salmon. Dishes that contain bones such as lamb shanks and Osso bucco are warm in nature. Also beneficial are warm hearty soups, stocks, broths, whole grains and roasted nuts or seeds such as walnuts or sesame. Dried foods, small dark beans, seaweeds and steamed winter greens are also a great addition.

As always it is best to eat within the seasons and consume food that is grown locally in your region. Read out post on seasonal Winter food.

Winter gardening

Growing your own food is so rewarding. Some of the things you can grow and harvest easily include Silverbeet, spinach, chillies and parsley. It’s also lovely to grow some coloured edible flowers such as Johnny jump ups. Here are some tips from The little veggie patch on what to grow through Winter.
