Must Haves for Winter Shopping

Winter is here! And while we’re rushing to get our normal household needs, we sort of forget about our needs for winter. It’s a complete different season. That means your nutritional needs change and the type of clothing you need changes.

Here’s some tips on small things you need to stock up on to stay warm and healthy this winter!

  • Gloves, hats, long sleeve vests, stockings, tights, leg warmers, scarves, hot water bottles, more gloves and don’t forget that two-for-one special on scarf set. The smallest items that come with keeping warm in winter are the ones always forgotten. You always seem to think you have them already, but trust us, you lost them last winter!
  • Tons of vitamins. Your body needs specific nutrients and vitamins in winter to stay healthy and fit! Iron, Vitamin D, Complex Carbs, Zinc and Vitamin C. For most of these you could just get in vitamin capsule form however, it’s great to eat foods that are packed with these vitamins too. For iron you could eat more beef, lentils, spinach, white beans, and even dark chocolate. For Vitamin D you could eat more fish, egg yolks, cereals, milk, and yogurts. For complex carbs you could eat more sweet potatoes, yams, pumpkins, and squash. For zinc you could eat more beef, pork, lamb, nuts, whole grains, and legumes. And lastly for Vitamin C you could eat tons of citrusy fruits and veggies such as spinach, Brussels sprouts, and winter squash.
  • And lastly, shop smart! Instead of paying thousands on a new heater, or extra blankets, maybe look into getting a gas heater and just filling gas each winter and getting one electric blanket that makes you warmer than 10 heavy blankets can. And instead of getting an entire new wardrobe, maybe just stock up on things you need… and okay, maybe one pair of those new fashion designer boots.
