As the arctic air keeps on bringing brutal temperatures to a large part of the United States, people can do more to keep warm besides wearing a coat, hat and gloves.
A variety of foods can help the body stay warm during these winter months. Heather Nicholds, a holistic nutritionist who has the Healthy Eating Starts Here website, said grains, spices and oils give the body energy to keep warm.
Ginger not only helps the body stay warm, but it also helps boost the immune and digestive systems.
Ginger can be used in salad dressings, soups such as ginger carrot soup, and baked goods. You can even drink ginger in hot water.
