The cold dark days of the winter often bring feelings of sadness, loneliness, and depression. In addition, the reduction or lack of sunlight can lead to feelings of depression and isolation. The dark days seem to last forever, and the cold weather can make you feel isolated. Sattvic food is a great way to chase away the winter blues! A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and spices will give you more energy during the day- which means less time spent feeling sluggish or down for no reason. And with so many delicious recipes available, it’s easier than ever to start eating sattvic foods today! These recipes are full of healthy veggies that provide fiber which improves gut health– one of the most important contributors to mental well-being. Adding the right blend of spices has multiple benefits for the body and mind. Not only do they add flavor to food, but they also offer numerous health benefits. For example, many spices are rich in antioxidants, which can help protect your body from diseases. Try our sattvic recipes that focus on incorporating more antioxidant-rich spices into your cooking. Turmeric is perhaps one of the most well-known antioxidant spices. It has anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. Ginger is a unique, wonderfully fragrant spice. What makes ginger spice so unique? Well, ginger helps maintain a balanced digestive system, leading to better health overall. Ginger also provides relief from nausea and motion sickness, whereas its anti-inflammatory benefits help ease arthritis pain or even menstrual cramps! There’s always something going on in our bodies that needs some TLC, so give yourself some with these simple sattvic recipes this winter. Try these recipes and let us know what you think. 1.
