Winterize Your Body! 8 Warming Herbs & Foods That Can Help Protect Your Health

The environment and the food we eat can create imbalances in the body. Using warming ingredients that are in season in our cooking can counteract imbalances created by the cold weather. Warming herbs and foods include: 

  • cinnamon
  • ginger
  • garlic
  • spicy foods
  • sweet potatoes
  • squash
  • meat 
  • nutrient-dense soups and stews
