Our Winter Pantry



'Tis the season for warm, nourishing foods. Notice how your body is beginning to crave warmer, heavier meals? Listen in. Just as the seasons change, so do our bodies. The more we pay attention to the foods our bodies crave, the better we tend to feel.

Have you tried to eat intuitively? Even just for a day, I encourage you to give it a try. Wake up in the morning and take a minute to really think about what your body wants and craves. Be careful here, because you might be getting misinformed by the sugar effect. Think less about indulging, and more about what you feel would really nourish your body.  Then, carry that same approach for the rest of the day. Are you hungry for a snack? Listen in. Sometimes a nice bowl of miso soup in the wintertime will satisfy you rather than a protein bar or smoothie.

Here is a sample day meal plan that might satisfy you during the winter months:

Breakfast:
Oatmeal with walnuts, maple syrup, chia seeds and homemade cashew milk

Lunch:
Massaged kale salad with pumpkin seeds, wild smoked salmon, shaved carrots and a miso vinaigrette

Snack:
Apple slices and almond butter

Dinner:
Roasted chicken with carrots, celery, chard, and potatoes

After Dinner:
Dark Chocolate and some ginger tea


Happy eating, friends! xx
