Have you ever wondered why we traditionally consume more nuts during winter? Read this article to know why we traditionally eat nuts like almonds or walnuts during winter!
When winter arrives in North India, we prepare ladoo & nuts mixture, or take them with milk. These superfoods might look tiny, but they are high in nutritional value.
Nuts (almonds, cashews, walnut, pistachio, etc.) contain healthy fats, fiber, calcium, and a rich source of vitamins & minerals. Due to these nutrients, nuts strengthen joints and bones, lower cholesterol levels, helpful in diabetes and high blood pressure.
Hemanta Ritucharya (seasonal regimen)
As per Ayurveda, it is essential to stay in harmony with nature. For that reason, Ayurveda advises following Ritucharya. During winters, to protect ourselves from cold & harsh weather, it is essential to consume food that nourishes our body & keeps us warm.
What are the health benefits of nuts like almonds or walnuts during winter?
Keep your body warm:
To protect ourselves from cold & dry weather, we need to consume food that is hot in potency & could help us keep our bodies warm.
When we eat nuts rich in healthy fats, protein & fiber, the body activates thermogenesis, which produces heat in the body. So, eating them can help you keep warm & cozy.
Satisfy your hunger:
Our digestive strength is also naturally at its best during winter. Due to this, we feel more hunger as compared to other seasons. Eating nuts helps to satisfy your hunger & keeps you full for longer. As a result, you will not end up overeating your meals and do not gain any weight.
The benefit of eating a/c to season
Changing your lifestyle according to different seasons can help your body adjust to season change very well. Due to this, you will not face any health issues due to seasonal changes.
Eating nuts during winter can help you prevent joint pain, cold, dry skin, & other ailments that may occur due to cold weather.
