Healthy is the definitive buzz word for January, and light and fresh is the way to go. Eating healthily doesn't need to mean a world of bland food and restriction. It means being a bit more sensible and the sensible thing to do is to eat fresh, whole foods that taste great!
To combat the chilly weather of the season, the trick is to make sure meals are still warm and tasty. Indian cuisine is particularly good when it's chilly - and brown rice is fabulous complex carbohydrate packed with nutrients that our bodies need. It has a distinct, nutty flavor that lends itself to spicy blends including, Indian, Mexican and Asian dishes. Warming Thai curries are also wonderful, while a spicy stir-fry will warm up your palate and you'll feel great about being sensible!
