what do you eat (& do) to keep yourself warm on days with -10° celcius or less? up to last week i felt like eating things like avocado, coconut & sweet potato (fat & carbs) to keep my body warm. a few days ago i found that even at this chilliness i feel better on eating fruits & greens. low fat.
this is what i had today:
- 1,5 ananas (not at once, of course 😉 )
- about 200g miner’s lettuce, mizuna & other salad
- 2 small persimmon
- 1 medjool date
- 1 plantain
- 6 leaves of savoy cabbage
- 1 apple
- 1 carob bean
- about 7 BIG leaves of curly kale
- 2 oranges
- about 30-40 big blackberry leaves
since i am somewhat inspired by “green for life” from victoria boutenko which i just have read, part of the greens had been blended: plantain with savoy cabbage turned out to be really yummy! but i still prefer to eat the things as they are … the best meal today was eating plantain & cabbage in the sun in front of our house 🙂
anyway, what really helps to keep me warm isn’t food but exercise. move! i do 3 to 4 small workouts a day, 5 to 20 minutes each, on the stepper or doing sit-ups, pushups, stretching or something.
