This chicken will be the ultimate pick me up and your family will definite appreciate the warm notes of spice during these cold months.

Lastly, no winter is complete without the warm and cozy touch of a hot chocolate. Prepare a hot chocolate on the stove if you’re feeling fancy, and use real chocolate, notes of cinnamon, and hot milk. If you are not a fan of hot chocolate, opt for cozy teas such as ginger tea or chai. This will be a great boost of vitamin c and immunity that is sure to keep you hydrated and healthy.
