Dietary Therapy guides us to stay healthy all year long. You can stay healthier by eating in harmony with the different seasons. Foods become part of the body after being consumed – so you really are what you eat!

Winter is the time to tonify your kidney energy by cooking food longer, at lower temperatures, with less added water. Slow-cooked meals are ideal!

Winter foods should focus on rich stocks, bone broth, and stew using hearty vegetables like pumpkin, black or kidney beans, walnuts and chestnuts, dark leafy greens, carrots and other root vegetables, mushrooms, cabbage, etc. A small amount of salt in the cooking is okay, but too much salt will put a burden on the kidneys.

Replenishing your kidney energy is essential at this time for both men and women because it is the centre of your deepest physical, mental, and emotional well-being and health. The good news is that eating these warming foods will benefit and support the kidneys, while warming the body’s core during the cold and darkness of winter.

So in winter it is important to get to bed early, continue drinking water, stay warm, rest well and of course eat the correct winter foods. Wishing you a happy and healthy winter from one and all at Bing’s Natural Health.
