Iced-Coffee-01,largeWinter is here! Not the winter that comes with snow but the one where getting out of bed is a real struggle. We’ll all do we can to try and contain some body heat and to help you, here are some simple and affordable ways that can help wade of the cold

Oatmeal

Oatmeal makes for a great breakfast and apart from this, it is considered one of the healthier whole grain meals. Oatmeal also contains a little fiber and plant based protein that is known to curb hunger and fill you up in a way that will keep you warm long enough before your next meal.

Sweet Potato

Apart from the sweet potato being a great healthy option to have for breakfast, it also contains a decent amount of fiber just like oatmeal that is sufficient enough to fill up your tummy. It is even better when it is baked so that you can attain all the nutrients you need.

Iced coffee

Believe it or not this actually works. If you indulge in a cup of ice cold coffee during the cold season, you are likely to feel warmer from the inside out. Caffeine is known to increase our metabolism by stimulating the release of fatty acids which in turn can increase body temperature.

Bananas

This enjoyable fruit that we have here in plenty is rich in magnesium and Vitamin B which helps the thyroid and adrenal glands regulate in cold weather.

Soups

There’s nothing like a bowl of heart healthy soup to warm us up on a cold day. The good thing with soups is that they can be made out of just about anything and can be had any time. Soups made in a healthy manner will also not interfere with your waistline.
