So how do we take good care of ourselves at this time of year? The nights are darker, the days are colder and we are wanting to hibernate. Our energy is lower during the winter months so one way we can gain more energy is to use living foods - sprouted beans and lentils. But I just want to eat soups and casseroles, I hear you say (this is for those living in the UK and colder climates), so how can you incorporate more living foods? One simple tip is to add sprouts to soups when serving, add them to salads and use a grated ginger dressing or chilli to add some heat.
