Boost Your Immunity With These Foods During Winter

Boost Your Immunity With These Foods During Winter


A layer of cold slowly covers the world as winter draws near. The world is enveloped in a cozy snow blanket, and all activity and energies are reduced to a gentle lull. It is time to put aside your energies and save them for next season.

Winter is a time when you focus all of your energy inwards. You can then settle into a state where you can reflect, rest, and hibernate. The cold season is a time to recover all your energy from the previous year and prepare for the next.

How to Make a Diet for the Winter That's Helpful

Winter is the time of year when digestion is at its best. In winter, the body needs more energy to stay warm and healthy, and the cold deepens the fire principle into the body's core, triggering the digestive capacity. As a result, this time of the year, our bodies want a more substantial diet full of nutrients, so you will probably eat more than in another season.

The goal of a supportive winter diet will be to calm Kapha without increasing Vata or the other way around. The right diet for the winter comes easily to many people.

Eat foods that are warm, cooked, slightly oily, and well-seasoned to achieve a balance of the six tastes, i.e., Sweet (Madhura), Sour (Amla), Salty (Lavana), Bitter (Tikta), Pungent (Katu), and Astringent (Kashaya).


  • Avoid iced or chilled beverages whenever possible, and consume warm or room temperature foods and drinks. 
  • Drinking a tea that has been boiled for five minutes and contains one-half teaspoon each of dried ginger, cinnamon, and clove can promote clean and clear respiratory passages while also increasing heat and circulation.
  • CCF Tea can be consumed throughout the day or after meals to support healthy digestion.
  • Hot spices like garlic, ginger, black pepper, cayenne, and chilli peppers
  • Add nuts and seeds in your diet for nutrients and warm required in winter season. Dry fruits such as walnuts, almonds, pistachio, cashewnuts and figs.
  • Add some green leafy and warm vegetables like radishes, cooked spinach, onions, carrots, and other root vegetables, which are well-received this time of year.
  • Cooked grains like oats, cornmeal, grain, rice, or kitchari (porridge) make a fantastic breakfast, and snacks and suppers of steamed vegetables and mung soups are great. Although legumes are generally beneficial for Kapha, they should be cooked thoroughly, spiced well, and garnished with a dollop of ghee to avoid aggravating Vata.
  • A cup of hot, spiced milk with a pinch of turmeric or dried ginger and nutmeg before bed can help to encourage sound sleep and should not be overly congested, although dairy consumption should be reduced during the winter months.



There’s only one way to achieve a healthy life: finding the right balance between diet and lifestyle. You cannot be healthy just by eating healthy foods; you have to look after your lifestyle, too; lifestyle and diet go hand in hand.
