Winter is coming! Even though you thoroughly enjoy the cold weather, nobody likes to fall into the trap of a slew of seasonal infections that eventually lead to cold, cough and fever. Covering yourself in layers of woollen and drinking hot beverages are just not enough. You'll have to accompany it with a diet, rich in immunity-boosting food. To start with, replace all cold things with warm and comforting food. And, our favourite is surely the ladoos. This winter special delicacy is packed with a treasure of nutrients that may help ward off the risk of cold and flu.
Masterchef Pankaj Bhadouria is here with a cracking recipe that is super delicious. But, most importantly, it is loaded with many immunity-boosting ingredients. “Winter is coming and so is cough, cold and flu! These immunity-booster ladoos will help you fight off sickness and be winter ready,” she wrote in an Instagram post. Take a look:
Apart from the ladoos, there are many winter recipes that you can swear by to keep your health intact. Let's take a look:
Masala chai may just be another cup of bliss for tea lovers. But it is flavoured with spices like cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and star anise, which lend in their disease-fighting antioxidants. Do include a small cup of masala tea in your diet.
Prepared with cinnamon, ginger, peppercorns and of course tomatoes, this steaming warm soup will soothe your throat and soul at once.
A winter special delicacy that you can't help but gorge on, Makki ki Roti and Sarson ka Saag. The Saag is made with a blend of winter greens such as sarson, methi and palak, which lend in tons of nutrients and immunity-boosting properties.
Bajra Khichdi is rich in protein. It also has a good amount of insoluble fibre, which acts as a prebiotic and helps in the growth of probiotics (good bacteria)
Here is another ladoo recipe, which is prepared with the goodness of ginger powder, coconut, whole wheat flour and loads of nuts. Ginger powder, as we all know, has powerful antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, which boost the immune system, and also help to fight infection.
Include these recipes in your diet, and stay protected from seasonal infections.
