The weather man has said that Nairobi, Kenya will be cold and rainy this month and next month. Exercise is often postponed on cold days. You look outside, it is raining and you’re like aaaaaah! I will run tomorrow, back to bed.
On cold days, it is difficult for me to drink water! impossible! If you see me drinking water, I am practically forcing myself. Nina Kabbia, my Sheci business partner taught me this water-drinking-habit. In campus, she always walked with a 1 litre water bottle and since our campus was located in a semi desert area…..1+1=2.
PS:I have learnt a lot of good habits and strange stuff from Nina. But that is a story for another day.
Eating or snacking healthy and on your it-is-too-cold-to-exercise days, is important. Here is my list of favorite cold weather foods and drinks.
2. Porridge: I enjoy my porridge with lemon.
3. Strungi or Lemon tea: The secret is in the lemons.
4. Tea with Ginger
6. Boiled Maize: I enjoy mine hot with several pinches of salt.
7. Sweet Potatoes: I prefer the ones with a rich yellow color when boiled. Though, I find it difficult to know which ones they are when buying.
Sweet potatoes with a cup of strungi for breakfast, is heaven on earth I tell you:)
What are your cold weather foods?
Keep warm *hugs*
