Our honeymoon with winter is coming to an end. We are already tired of enduring the snow, the icy roadways and especially the cold temperature. So why not eat to warm upa bit? Here is a list of the foods that will offer you the most heat in this cold winter.

1. Coffee

Of course, coffee! This hot drink is a classic to stay awake or simply to warm up on a cold winter evening. Much to our delight, several coffees are roasted here in Quebec, so it is possible to choose one with the certification Aliments préparés au Québec.

2. Tea / herbal tea

Coffee is not your cup of tea? In this case, opt for herbal tea or tea! There is something for everyone: black, white, green, spicy, fruity, floral, etc. Wrapped in a blanket, cup of tea in hand; you will be armed to face the cold days.

3. Hot sauce

At one point or another, we've all overestimated our ability to eat spicy food ... Instantly, we feel our body invaded by a huge wave of heat. This sensation is created because our blood vessels are dilated and this process activates our metabolism. So, who wants hot sauce?

4. Chicken broth

Did you know that chicken broth has magical powers? Well, it's true that there has never been any serious study on the subject ... Nevertheless, chicken broth is a must to cure any cold, gastro or matter of the heart. Note that the effect is accentuated when someone else prepares it for you!

5. Tomato

Tomato, you say? This fruit is well known for its freshness. On the other hand, when it is prepared, the tomato can become an excellent base for a lot of typically comforting recipes. Spaghetti sauce, chili or tomato cream; it’s the favourite ingredient for cooking meals like grandma!

6. Legume

They may not be  so popular, but legumes are a well worth decovering source of protein. When ingested, they directly solicit our digestive system. After that, our stomach must mobilize to digest this food rich in carbohydrates. During this process, a lot of energy flows through our body, which then  warms up by itself. Magical, isn’t it?

7. Oatmeal

Oatmeal is often recognized as the champion's breakfast because it offers you an incomparable support. Good for the heart, oatmeal is a source of absolute comfort! Accompanied by berries and maple syrup, it is a must to start the day on the right foot.
