Nutritious and delicious choices to help keep you on track.
There’s no doubt that the winter months change the way we eat. Short days, long nights and staying in from the cold has us gravitating towards those classic comfort foods that typically aren’t the healthiest.But the experts at SPUD, who are leaders in the sustainable and healthy grocery delivery business, are here to help us keep our healthy eating in check. These are their recommendations for the top 10 foods to eat this year to stay healthy.
Vegetables like kale, spinach and swiss chard pack a serious vitamin punch. Kale, for example, is very high in vitamins A and C and is a good source of iron, calcium magnesium and potassium. Try braising your kale for a warmer preparation or include it in a soup with white beans, garlic and tomato.
In the winter months, it’s important to make sure you’re getting enough vitamin C to super-boost your immune system and fight against the common cold. Try adding oranges to your morning smoothie or grate it on your baking for a zesty finish.
In winter months, root vegetables are the stars! Add to hearty meals like stews and soups, or simply cube, toss with EVOO and salt and pepper, and roast in the oven. They are a super healthy source of fibre, vitamins and minerals.First time Spud.ca customers receive $20 off your order of $60 or more with the code WLIVING.
Walnuts are the ultimate brain food. High in healthy omega 3 fatty acids, walnuts will keep your mind sharp all winter long.
Turmeric is quickly becoming known for its incredible, anti-inflammatory capabilities. Try it in your favourite drink like a latte, tea or juice.
Making bone broth is a super labour intensive process, so why not just buy it already made? This highly nutritious, flavourful broth contains collagen, glucosamine, amino acids, electrolytes, calcium, and minerals from the bones from which it was made.
Not the most flashy or exciting food on the list, but a great staple nonetheless. Lentils provide lots of protein and nutrition and are great for warm winter soups, stews and dips.
Kimchi is a fermented food that can do wonders for your gut. Add it to a rice bowl or your morning eggs for a spicy, probiotic kick.
Don’t let a hectic schedule get the best of you. Protein is more accessible than ever with new, alternative forms being developed from veggie sources like peas, rice and hemp.
Mushrooms are some of the ‘meatier’ and most versatile vegetarian options out there. Try chanterelles in a warm pasta or salad.Head to www.spud.ca for full product details and delivery information for Vancouver, Victoria, Edmonton and Calgary.
