People spend much of the winter months indoors, which may lower their immunity and make it easier for viruses to move from one person to another in a confined setting. A harsh winter’s dry air and cold may also affect immunity. Additionally, people frequently consume unhealthy foods in the winter. In this season, people like to eat fried things a lot, so it is better to avoid eating too many pakoras and samosas.

Here are some important dietary tips for the winter, suggested by noted dietician Manpreet Kalra.

  • Include millets in your diet, such as rajgira, ragi, and bajra. They will offer nutrients that are crucial for overall health, such as vitamins and minerals.
  • Eat nutrient-rich meals frequently and in small amounts. It will keep you satisfied for a long time.
  • Include green and root vegetables in your diet, such as carrots, sweet potatoes, saag, spinach, amaranth, and bathua. These are rich in magnesium and guard against cellular damage.
  • Buttermilk should be substituted with curd because it is a superior probiotic and has greater efficacy. In the summer, buttermilk is a preferable option.
  • Before going to bed, drink some golden milk to improve immunity and reduce inflammation.
