i love winter with hearty soups and stews full of root veggies, bone broths and big chunks of meat. I made up a huge stew the other day, now, whenever i want something warming i can just heat some up on the stove. it's healthy fast food. It's not something that i ever use a recipe for, i buy whatever veggies are in season, this time of year, it's the lovely rootie veggies like turnip, parsnip, beet, carrot, and the cruceriferous cabbages and broccolis and cauliflowers etc. i add whatever seasonings i'm in the mood for. Sometimes, i'll throw in a little dried organic nettle from the summer season for some extra vitamin power. And the bone broths are such a wonderful source of calcium and magnesium, all balanced out the way that nature intended them to be. I've been serving the stew with a drizzle of Udo's oil on top for added flavour and for extra healthy fats. YUMMM! What inspires you in the winter?
