Looking for some foods to add to your diet this winter? Then this is the list for you! For some people, it can be harder to get fresh and tasty foods in wintertime, so this list is focused on foods you should be adding to your diet that are readily available… each contains elements that will help you keep your skin supple and healthy, help energize you through the cold (and darker!) winter months, and in general help to boost your health! All can be found at your local grocery store, so eat more of these foods to add to your diet this winter – to stay healthy and happy!!

  1. Salmon. Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids (along with sardines, chia and flaxseed)… this unsaturated fatty acid may protect against Alzheimer’s disease and age-related memory loss, as well as protect your joints, and offer up heart health benefits, too. And an added benefit? It nourishes your skin and calms inflammation… important when the weather is dry. If salmon isn’t to your preference, you can also take a high-quality Omega-3 supplement, too – I have been taking the Juvenon Essential Omega-3 formula and I have seen improvement in the quality of my skin in addition in these drier months. Check it out and see if it’s a good source of Omega-3s for your lifestyle!
  2. Walnuts. I love to eat nuts as a snack – they are portable and usually offer up a bevy of benefits that traditional (read: unhealthy) snacks don’t. Why not make your snacks count towards your healthy goals?!?! One of my favorites is walnuts. They, too, are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids – which provide antioxidants and amino acids that are good for blood pressure and your immune system – important when you are indoors a lot and colds and flu can be easily passed around. I like to eat them whole, add to my morning oatmeal, or even roast them with a little cayenne for a kick!
  3. Broccoli and Cauliflower. Winter is a good time to up your intake of vitamin C – this antioxidant can help block damage caused by free radicals, which contributes to aging. So what better time than now to make sure vitamin C is part of your diet?! Two of the best veggie sources are broccoli and cauliflower… and the good thing is these vegetables are readily available, inexpensive and versatile. Broccoli soup, a stir fry (use some of the ingredients listed above!), eaten as crudites with a delicious homemade hummus… the list goes on. My DeniseAustin.com eating plan includes recipes like Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad, Shrimp Scampi with Broccoli, Colorful Veggie Omelette and more!
