New Delhi: In winter, many people experience various problems such as swelling in the hands and feet, stomach bloating, coughing and colds, and heart attacks. Experts say that warming meals are required to satisfy our bodies’ desire for nutrition-rich foods (dry fruits, dates, nuts, and oilseeds) that provide both warmth and nourishment.
Include nuts and seeds
Nuts and seeds with a high-temperature effect include walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, melon seeds, and sesame seeds. They help you in keeping warm in the winter and your blood pressure normal.
Include desi ghee in your diet
Desi ghee can help with digestion, constipation, vitamin D levels, and bone strength by increasing calcium absorption. Also, by including some healthy fat, your body will have extra calories to fight the cold weather without having to rely on protein.
Include eggs and fish
In the winter, a high-protein diet also helps to improve your immune response and overall health. And, if you don't have any health issues, seasonal vegetables and fruits are always the best options to eat.
Include fruits and salads in your diet
By adding raw foods like fruits and salads to your diet, you can cut down on how often you get sick. These foods can also help you stay hydrated and digest food better.
Limit your intake of tea, coffee, and soft drinks
Don't drink too much tea, coffee, or soft drinks because they cause you to pee more, which lowers your blood volume.
