One of my absolute favorite winter teas is Celestial Seasonings Nutcracker Sweet Black Tea. While waiting for my local grocery store to get this in stock, I discovered this similar tea from Trader Joe's which has nearly identical ingredients. Both are awesome! I just wanted to share in case, like me, you can't yet find the Celestial Seasonings version. Both contain 20 tea bags per box. As a bonus, Trader Joe's is 20 cents cheaper (at least in my area $1.99 vs $2.19).
Celestial Seasonings ingredients: Black tea, natural vanilla extract with other natural flavors and cinnamon.
Trader Joe's ingredients: Black tea, natural vanilla with other natural flavors and cinnamon.

The go-to food for me is a Caesar-type salad that's quick to throw together and is yummy. I cook up the chicken ahead of time (1 tsp olive oil, heated & add chicken cut in bite sized pieces - season with cajun seasoning & cook til done), and keep the other ingredients (Parm. cheese, light caesar dressing & romaine lettuce) on hand. The recipe for this is in Spark Recipes under "Cajun Chicken Caesar Salad".
I love to serve this with Trader Joe's Everything Pretzel chips
Every once in a while I get sick of plain water, but the flavored waters here in Germany are either full of sugar or artificial sweeteners. I found out how to make my own 0 calorie flavored water threw accident! We have great fruit teas here in germany, I use 5 bags of fruit tea on a pitcher of hot water and just let it cool down. Then I mix it with sparkling water and finished. Flavored Water!
My favorites are blueberry vanilla or black and blueberry fruit tea from Teekanne.
