It is important to make sure that you keep yourself well-nourished. There are many necessary foods for the body during this season. Here are some nutritious foods that can help keep you warm in cold weather:
1. Rice Milk
Warm rice milk in a cold day is a good choice for people with lactose intolerance or allergies to milk, soy, or nuts. Rice milk, especially purple rice milk, contains many antioxidants such as oryzanol and anthocyanin which help increase skin elasticity and moisture underneath the skin. It also helps lower your risk of heart disease and stroke. Some rice milk is fortified with bone-building nutrients such as vitamin D and calcium.

Staying healthy during the cool weather is more than avoiding a cold or flu. It’s also about protecting your body and eat healthily. A healthy diet strengthens the immune system, helping the body resist viruses or infections.
