Stay Warm on a Cool Spring Day

So far this season, the warm weather has been hit and miss. It seems we get a heat wave just long enough to get in the habits of grilling and wearing flip-flops, then suddenly it’s cold again. Today is one of those chilly days, with a high in the low teens and rain…all day. Warm weather is destined to come and stay soon, but in the meantime, I’ve pulled together some of my favourite chilly weather recipes to keep bellies warm.

Start the day with a filling Asparagus and Mushroom Breakfast topped with a poached egg. This breakfast is High in Fibre and is an Excellent Source of Protein to help kick-start the day. For lunch, add some fish to your diet with this Tilapia with Warm Mushroom and Arugula Salad. It’s quick and easy to prepare.

Dinner is easy with this Mushroom Ravioli with Four Cheese Sauce. A quick filling that bursts with flavour is enclosed in prepared won ton skins instead off pasta making this a lighter version of ravioli.
If you’re a snacker- I know I am- go for a light, healthy snack, that will continue to help warm you on these chilly nights. Warm Mushroom Dip with Baked Pita Crisps is a healthy alternative to salty snacking. At only 61 calories per serving, this is a dip you can feel good about eating and serving to your family.
Be sure to include mushrooms in your diet, no matter the weather. Adding four to five medium sized mushrooms (100 g) to your meals provides important vitamins and minerals, essential for a healthy body and active lifestyle.
How are you staying warm today?
