Ahh, it’s the time of year where the days are short (light wise) but seem to last forever. It’s easy to fall back into bad habits because it’s “too cold” to do anything and it’s easy to just cover up! Don’t give up, we want you to continue and/or start your healthy habits this winter!
While we will certainly eat anything at any time of year, we definitely have our favorite winter recipes. Nice warm soups and chilis, hearty and filling sides, and fragrant breakfast recipes! Below are a few of our favorite foods to prepare in advance during the winter time. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
Winter Food Prep Recipes
Crock Pot Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats – Prepare a big batch of these delicious oats overnight and you will have a yummy smelling house AND a yummy breakfast for days! These are great hot OR cold! There’s a good reason they have been one of our top recipes for years! Pair this with eggs (we help you boil, scramble, or make an omelet!) or another protein source (here are some options if you don’t like eggs!) for a complete meal.
Black Bean & Sweet Potato Turkey Chili – It sounds like an odd combination but – trust me – it is amazing. This is another one of our top recipes! You get everything you need for a complete meal…protein and fiber! Eat it for lunch or dinner! We usually make ours with ground chicken breasts instead of turkey.
Southwest Style Bison Chili with Quinoa – Scott LOVES this recipe. It’s easy to make and tastes great leftover. We actually like it cold (as leftovers) but it’s delicious warmed up again too!
