SALLYANNE’S THREE TOP TIPS FOR WINTER
22nd May, 2016

The disappearance of the autumn leaves and the ripening of citrus fruits are signs that winter is on its way. And my desire for warm cooked foods is my internal cue to prepare for colder weather.

Sallyanne's winter tips

#1 Embrace the qualities of winter

 

When we think of winter we may have visions of rain, bleak skies and lazing in the intermittent sunshine like a cat. Winter has its unique qualities that we can embrace to support our health.

 

Eastern approaches to health describe winter as yin time, to support storage by the body and introspection of the mind. Introspection provides an opportunity for us to consider new ideas, which we can then take forward in spring.

EMBRACING AUTUMN FOODS
10th March, 2016

Sallyanne Pisk, nutritionist and accredited practising dietitian, gardener and author of ‘Eating for You”, is at the Blue Mountains Food Co-operative on the first Wednesday of each month to answer food and nutrition questions. This month she shares her suggestions for eating well in autumn.

SALL

Eating with the seasons aligns with the Eastern approach to health and wellbeing, as well as the philosophy of the Blue Mountains Food Co-operative. Eastern medicine suggests that we will more easily meet our health requirements in autumn by eating foods that have grown in the same environment as us. The Eastern approach is based on our connection with our environment.
