Four delicious ways to eat your greens + a yoga move for digestion

I don't know about you, but in Winter, I tend to want to eat things that are…not so good for me. Hearty things, pasta-ey things. Cheesy things.

Notice I haven't mentioned veggies? Yeah. It's a problem. If you also find getting your greens harder in Winter, you might be feeling the need to re-vamp your habits.

Try these four simple (and hearty) recipes. So yummo!

  1. Beetroot Salad with Blood Orange Dressing
  2. Chickpea, kale, and avocado salad (SO incfredibly delicious, and I don't even like avocado).
  3. Swiss Chard & Sweet Potato Gratin. You'd couldn't eat this ALL the time, but it's a vitamin-packed way to get a mac & cheese fix. Really good. We had this often last Winter.
  4. Green Soup with Ginger. Possibly my favourite soup of all time. Dead easy, although there's a lot of chopping - you can get round that by using bags of baby spinach, which I sometimes do.

Yum!

And, to help your digestion along a little more, may we suggest a twist?

Sit with your legs extended, then bend your right knee to bring your right foot to the outside of your left leg. Inhale, lengthen your spine, and as you exhale, twist your ribcage around to the right. Go only as far as you can before you start over-arching or hunching your lower back or jutting your ribs forward. Stay and breathe. You might want to bend your bottom leg, as pictured, and rest your left arm around your bent leg. Back arm can support you. Be sure to repeat on the other side!
