Winter comfort food | winter nourishment: striking balance in the colder months
Winter, recognized by its dark skies and cold weather, can often get a bad rap compared to its sister season Summer. The life outside our window begins to dull as Autumn's warm hues fade away, and the trees lose their leaves, preparing for the onset of Winter. The natural world then turns away from the external and begins their dive into the inner world, as new life is birthed beneath the surface waiting for Spring to blossom.
Taking a cue from nature, we too should use this time of death and rebirth to shelter inside our homes and nestle even deeper into ourselves. By embracing this natural course, we can hope to find balance by nurturing and nourishing ourselves from the inside out.
