10 Power Foods You Should Eat This Winter

From the Diabetic Living Online website its – 10 Power Foods You Should Eat This Winter. Find all the tips and recipes at the Diabetic Living Online website. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018! http://www.diabeticlivingonline.com/

 

10 Power Foods You Should Eat This Winter
Include these wintertime power foods for diabetes in your meal plan to keep your health on top. Try them in our delicious diabetic recipes!

New Year, New You
Boost your health this season with the freshest winter ingredients. Learn which foods are at their peak during these chilly months, as well as how to pick them, how to cook them, and why they’re healthy. These foods are easy to incorporate into a diabetes meal plan and will tantalize your taste buds all winter long.

 

Brussels Sprouts
These small bulbs grow along stalks and have a taste and texture similar to cabbage. Brussels sprouts take a long time to grow and are best harvested in winter. In the produce aisle, look for sprouts that are green with little yellowing. To prepare this delicate vegetable, use fresh Brussels sprouts (refrigerate them for up to two days); rinse with cool water and remove the outer leaves………

Pomegranate
The edible seeds of a pomegranate are the real fruit of this dry-climate-grown produce. In the United States, pomegranates are typically grown in California and Arizona, where humidity is scarce. The bright red seeds are surrounded by membranes inside and protected by a thick and colorful skin.

Pomegranates are the perfect balance between tart and sweet. Throw these seeds on top of salads, or eat them plain. You can also cook down the seeds and reduce the juice into a delectable syrup perfect for topping off whole wheat pancakes………

Cinnamon
Cinnamon is a kitchen staple that seems to get more popular as the months get colder. Cinnamon provides a hint of spice and warmth to almost any recipe, including pumpkin pie and hot chocolate. In the 1600s, cinnamon was a valuable commodity in the Dutch East India trade, but its use dates back to the Ancient Egyptians.

Bark from cinnamon trees is stripped to reveal an inner bark that is allowed to coil into quills. Quills are then cut and dried. Ceylon cinnamon is commonly grown in Sri Lanka. Cassia cinnamon is similar to Ceylon, but it comes from a darker bark and is much coarser and less fragrant. Cassia cinnamon is the variety typically used by Americans……………..
