A glorious Sunday visit to my dear friend Alex in Coorabel who is just in from Peru – and me home from the Maldives – made for an enlightening catch-up, and a bounty of citrus from the orchard that is her garden.
With all things a bit wintery Down Under, here’s a little bit of sunshine to soothe you through the cooler clime.
Traditional Chinese medicine suggests that to keep the winter chill out we should enjoy an abundance of warming food. These ingredients have a healing effect on our bodies by heating our internals and keeping the cold at bay.
In addition to the ingredients in this loaf, other foods such as chestnuts, aduki beans, quinoa, pumpkin, lima beans, ginger and shiitake mushrooms also have warming properties – and may also help to dry our systems of unwelcome cold symptoms so prevalent during winter. Enjoy.Print
