Great thread.

I agree with soups and teas. Another important nutrient this time of year for me is vitamin D, from supplements or Cod liver oil if I can't get sunlight.

I made baked potato soup for lunch today. It tasted so good.

how you feel about curry? lentil curry can be quite filling and veggie laden. so can lasagna. and then think about stuffed veggies like peppers or zucchini. you can do great warm, grain and veggie based salads for the filling or just by themselves. squash are also lovely bases for soups and stews and if you can master it, serving containers.

-google first. ask questions later.

If you make a vegetable soup or any stew you can add pureed cooked squash to thicken the broth.


I love to cook and bake. I have compiled hundreds of recipes on Pinterest: Crowd pleasers: Traditional & Lightened versions of timeless favorites, as well as: gluten free, vegan, Paleo & Grain-Free... and a ton of Scones and desserts.

MMmm I agree butternut squash soup is so good! We use our crock pot a lot and make split pea soup or lentil stew with or without meat. Pot roast is good and we just choose a lean cut of meat use less of it and more veggies carrot celery onion garlic and red potatoes or yams, cover with water and nutritional yeast set the crock and leave it be. We roast our own chickens in the oven a lot this time of year and use through out the week. Our green salads are heartier too with pears apples and a few nuts and spinach, winter veg. Sometimes I will serve a salad like that with a warm vinaigrette.

I make vegan chili a lot during the winter. Butternut squash soup is also very good. Do a search on SparkRecipes and browse through some recipes :)

The summer is my best time. I eat salads and fruits and love it but in the winter I'm looking for warm filling foods over lighter cold salads. I will make soups and although I prefer a thicker soup over a broth base I've learned to thicken with veggies through my food processor. What foods do you choose to eat but still stay healthy? emoticon
