Food & Winter

That's right! It's Winter and we're tired, hurt and hungry. What to eat? What do YOU eat to keep up your energy and keep down the weight during the cold, miserable Winter months?

In the morning I prefer plain, thick yogurt and put this on the top: ground flaxseed, chia seeds, hemps seeds, cranberries, cereal (ie rice krispies), fruit (banana, blueberries, strawberries, rasperries, etc often from the freezer), walnuts. This keeps me going until about 3pm. In the Winter we have our big meal late in the afternoon then soup&salad or something light about 7pm. I usually am not hungry in the evening but for something to drink and maybe an apple. My parents are German and Slovak so I have an appetite…no skinny but not overweight. I eat when hungry and found this works best for me.

Over the years I have found that potatoes, wheat, sugar & corn affect me greatly so I either avoid these or have them rarely. I am the cook in our house so this works out fine. What about YOU? What do you eat in the Winter? How is you activity level? Or do you hibernate?

    Happy tidings everyone! I know this time of year is tough but when i start getting down I turn to humour and cooking. We all need to watch our weight, its true but i enjoy making something good for family and pals. I get to taste while im working which makes me smile and so i dont eat everything and get big as a house then I give my food and sweets away which again makes me smile cuz Ive made peopl happy. On the days Im down I go to humour whether on the net radio or tv. I have both OA and RA and its not always easy but its too easy to sit in my own miserable pity party and forget: Doing whats easy isnt always what is right.

    Thanks! I agree about the humour. Unfortunately not everyone agrees with me. To bad for them! Hope you had a great holiday season.
