Healthful Hints: Transitioning to a Winter Diet

My recording software is working again which means I’m finally able to post another episode of Healthful Hints!

In this episode we’re chatting about:

  • The changes we can expect when winter is upon us
  • What foods we should be consuming during this season
  • My favorite winter meals and desserts

Each of the four seasons offer specific practices and wisdom that can translate into positive changes to our diet. Staying attuned to the current season benefits our health, overall well-being, and gives us an excuse to eat more… fat.

Come to me, my dear coconut oil. I’ll keep you safe and warm during the blustery days ahead ;)

Notes

5 of our favorite winter casserole recipes that I mentioned in the video:

1) Lazy (wo)mans cabbage roll casserole

Kick the rice cooking, cabbage blanching, sauce making, and meat cooking to the curb with these extremely quick and easy way to prepare cabbage “rolls”. Throw it in the oven and forget about it!

2) Comforting Baked Mac n’ Cheese with Bacon

This dairy free mac n’ cheese is a real crowd pleaser. Keep the kids happy with the deep orange color of the “cheese” sauce and surprise the adults of the group with the smoky, crunchy topping. Or, prepare on the weekend and pop in the freezer for a weeks’ worth of healthy frozen lunches!

3) Hunters Pie with Herb Gravy

The herb gravy gives this casserole a lighter, undeniably unique and delicious flavor (and makes loads of leftovers for freezable lunches!)

4) Biscuit Topped Chicken Pot Pie

A dairy and gluten-free healthy chicken pot pie made with homemade vegan mushroom soup.

5) No Fuss Jambalaya Bake

The most popular casserole on the blog, this 4 step casserole will be the healthful answer to your busy weeknights!
