If you were to ask your friends and family to name their favourite season, it’s a safe bet very few would choose winter. Even in sunny South Africa the onset of June and July means frosty mornings, chilly nights and shorter days – not to mention the dreaded coughs and colds.
Instead of being glum about having to swop summer braais for more time indoors, it’s time to celebrate all the wonderful things the new season has to offer, from big coats to hearty soup.
- You’re allowed to ditch the summer diet
Instead of counting calories and skipping carbs you can use the colder months to indulge in all the most delicious and hearty meals you love most. Instead of slimmer salads there’s warm soup and Sunday roasts with extra gravy and potatoes. Instead of kale juice there’s mugs of hot chocolate. And it’s the time of year when no one can judge you for swopping fruit salads for pancakes and waffles.
