IT’S BENEFICIAL IN the colder months to indulge in Vitamin C rich food items and eat light, as the tendency to eat more rears its head during these months.

Femalefirst.co.uk shares tips on how to beat winter gloom:

Consume recommended Vitamin C levels daily: It is important to help support your immune system not only in winter, but all year long. It may also help contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

Go grill: Grilling is a healthy way to cook food, whatever time of year. Bring that summery barbecue feeling into your kitchen and onto your dining table.

Make meals lighter: We tend to eat more in the colder months, particularly more carbohydrates. Our calorie intake also increases, making us more prone to weight gain. In cold weather, many of us fill up on carb-loaded comfort foods, whereas in the summer we’re far more likely to eat salads and fruit! Eating more like you would in the warmer weather will help to bring back that summer feeling.
