Hey awesome ones, got the Winter blahs? Many of us need a few things to stay in the comfort zone when the weather outside is snowy, icey and freezing.That’s why I have a few of my go-to comfort items to help with making healthy food, warming up, and breathing in some healthy moisture laden air. Although many of our viewers are over 50, this video vlog could be great info for a man or woman in their 30s or 40s too. I also talk about setting aside some time on a snow day or weekend to rejuvenate and take the time to stay at home and get comfy. Maybe this Youtube video will help you get inspired to enjoy winter a little bit more. (scroll down for chili & broccoli soup recipe)
