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.
