6 Winter Foods

The best part of winter is the food!

Okay, that's arguable, but it has to be up there!!

Here are 6 of the best winter foods!

OATMEAL

Why? It helps you avoid the winter blues!

The whole grain food actually helps battle SAD (Seasonal Affected Disorder)!

WALNUTS

Why? They help keep your skin from drying out!

Moisturizers help, but the omega-3 fatty acids help you from the inside out!

GARLIC

Why? Kicks the ass of cold and flu viruses!

In the study, the people who were given garlic supplements ended up with 24 colds out of the bunch. The ones taking placebos? 64! The idea is the chemical allicin — which may trigger the production of white blood cells!

WINTER SQUASH

Why? Helps put s stop to winter weight gain!

It's the fiber! A study showed that people who routinely ate more than the recommended amount of fiber, 14 grams, on average weight less than those who ate less than 14!

CHICKEN SANDWICH

Why? Keeps your energy up!

Darkness makes you sleepy by telling your body to make melatonin — so eat those complex carbs to keep your energy levels up!

CHICKEN SOUP

Why? Come on! It helps you breathe easy, and is also the nectar of the gods! Ha!

The hot liquid can help temporarily clear your sinuses, while being packed with nutrients to help fight off whatever's going on in your head — like colds! Go for the kind with more veggies!

Yum! So there you go, guys!

Happy holidays, happy winter, happy eating!
