Winter Foods To Eat For Immunity & Strength


In the winters our body is more prone to colds
and illness. But that doesn’t mean it’s the season
to stock up on medication. Instead, eating seasonal, winter foods can
boost immunity as well as keep us warm and help you kick the winter blues. Fresh Carrots, Purple yams and sweet potatoes
are readily available during this time. Eating them in season means they are at their
tastiest and healthiest. Carrots are high in Vitamin A, B6 and K and
are known to boost eyesight. Now here’s a really cool story about how
carrots got their reputation for improving eyesight. During World War II, the British would black
out their cities to prevent air strikes by the Germans. But even in the dark the British pilots were
able to find German fighter jets. What the Germans didn’t know is that the
British had been using their new invention, radar. But to keep them in the proverbial dark, the
Brits spread the rumour that their pilots were being fed a whole lot of carrots,which
helped them see in the dark. And the Germans fell for it! While carrots are great for your eyes, they
definitely don’t help you see in the dark. But they’re really versatile. You can eat them in salads, dip them in some
hummus, add them to pulaos or even eat a divine gajar ka halwa! Check out our video we featured a while ago
for a not-too-sweet gajar halwa recipe. Purple yam is loaded with calcium, potassium
and antioxidants that actually give it its signature purple colour. Slice it up, fry or grill it, or even add
it to sabzi. Now, Undhiyu is a popular recipe that uses
purple yams among a whole host of other winter veggies. Check out this healthy version we made of
the Gujju classic we made a while ago. Sweet potatoes are highly nutritious tubers
loaded with magnesium, beta-carotene and anti-microbial properties that actually help you fight off
infections. Add it to soups, sabzi, mash it as a nice
sweet potato mash or buy some of the coal roasted sweet potatoes sold by hawkers across
the country during the winter. Green veggies like spinach, mustard greens
or sarso, fenugreek or methi and green peas are in full bloom in the winters. Spinach not only improves immunity but also
strengthens bones and boosts heart health. Add it to parathas, smoothies, munch on palak
paneer or even make some crunchy bhajiyas. Mow Methi may not be your favourite thing
to eat but it is ridiculously healthy for you It helps manage diabetes, controls cholesterol
and also promises to curb your appetite, which is a great bonus. It can be used in sabzis, parathas or theplas
and for winters it’s usually made into methi laddus which if you can palet are a super
healthy thing to eat. Green peas are very versatile and can be added
to anything from rice to subzis to salads. Make sure you include at least one green leafy
vegetable in your diet every other day to take advantage of what this awesome season
has to offer. Jaggery is winter’s vitamin shot. Our ancestors have been eating more jaggery during cold months for generations. This is because jaggery is a warming ingredient
that is loaded with iron and other minerals that fortify you against the chills. It’s great for people with high blood pressure
and also helps digestion. Jaggery actually helps boost haemoglobin so
its excellent for women with anemia. Plus if you’re trying to eat healthy but
like me are a huge sucker for desserts a small piece of jaggery after your meal will help
satisfy those sweet cravigs! Add it to your dals, make laddus or use it
to replace your refined sugar for a boost of nutrients. If you want an easy recipe for the perfect
winter laddu, check out this til gud video. Bajra, Jowar , Makai, and Ragi are all amazing
grains that you should eat more of during the winter. Actually you should eat more of these grains
all year round. All these winter millets are rich in carbohydrates
and provide energy to the body and can be consumed in tons of different ways. Bajra Khichdi is a Rajasthani household-favourite
during winters. Ragi dosa is a staple in south Indian homes. And jowar rotlas are enjoyed across Gujarat
this season. They are also gluten-free and can reduce inflammation
and joint pain. Here’s a super healthy paratha recipe that’s
packed with wholesome grains and much more, which will be an awesome addition to your
winter menu. Maize lowers blood sugar, is a rich source
of Vitamin B12, energises the body during winters and keeps the skin healthy. So enjoy some makki ki roti with your sarson
ka saag this season for sure. Dates are an incredibly healthy ingredient
and a great thing to add to your winter diet. They are incredibly heart-healthy food cos
they have No cholesterol, very little fat, no sodium: THey’re a powerhouse of essential vitamins
and contain a ton of vitamin C which keeps your hair and skin healthy in the dry winters. You can eat them as is because they are delicious or drink them with hot milk or even make these delicious date and nut laddus that also contain mineral rich
ghee. Or you can try out some of these energy bites
that which not only contain dates but also have some fantastic seeds and nuts and healthy
fats which are perfect to make for a winter snack Plus they’ll keep for a good month or so
so you only need to make a big batch at the beginning of the month and enjoy healthy snacks for weeks to come. If you eat the right food at the right time
your body does a much better job of coping with the stresses of its environment. I hope this video helps you be more thoughtful
about your diet. Thanks for watching and until next time stay

  3. Carrots contain vitamin A which is needed for dark adaptation – meaning when one goes from light to dark they almost feel blind but after spending some time in dark they are able to see things not properly but in a bit blurry way. It is because of a chemical substance called rhodopsin found in rod receptor cells of the eyes.These cells use vitamin A to synthesize it. So people lacking vitamin A suffer from night blindness.
