Rupali Dutta, consultant nutritionist says “During winters, what you eat matters a lot for fighting the cold outside. There are certain foods that can generate heat in the body naturally. Hence, one must customize the pantry and include winter-friendly foods in it for the season.” 

Not only do they help to cope up with low temperatures but also they are proven to be effective for people having low immunity in their body, as with the onset of winters infections like cold, flu and viral fever come hand in hand. The best thing about these foods is that they are already there in our comfort reach.
