Eat To Keep Warm

According to traditional Chinese medicine, foods can be categorised according to whether they are warming, cooling or neutral. Those with a high water content such as cucumber and lettuce tend to be cooling. Warming foods include pungent spices such as cloves and cinammon, as well as slow growing root vegetables such as parsnips and carrots and fatty meats such as lamb. As the weather cools we are advised to eat less cooling and more warming foods – eat to keep warm.
