Use of Dry Fruits in Winter

Dry fruits are one of the most popular snacks for the winter, especially in the subcontinent. This is because they are more readily available in that season and have historically been known to have numerous health benefits.

For one, they use the thermogenic effect of digestion to keep you warm during the winter. This means that when your body digests dry fruits, due to their specific composition—it ends up producing more heat than it usually would digesting other food substances. This makes them a natural source to get your internal heaters up and running.

On top of that, these dry fruits are extremely nutritionally valuable. Pound for pound, dry fruits tend to contain 3.5 times more essential vitamins and nutrients than their fresher counterparts. Dry fruits contain a lot of healthy fats that are necessary for your body to function and end up becoming invaluable sources of a lot of important essential micronutrients such as Vitamin E, Vitamin B, and plant-based Omega 3.

And if you’re dieting in the winter (which is harder to do than in the warmer months), dry fruits are your best friends. Dry Fruits can easily substitute other unhealthy snacks. And they can give you a healthy, responsible way out of your eating urges. Instead of eating chocolates, or toffees, or other junk food, you can just as easily (and with more benefit to your health) pick up a bunch of almonds, raisins, or pistachios.

This is further made easier because all of these dry fruits taste delicious! This is why they are a part of so many cultural dishes. Dry fruits are used to add to the flavor of several dishes, from raisins in the Kabuli pulao to almonds and pistachios in Halwas, Lassis, or Kheers. They bring all of these benefits and taste so good makes them the complete package.
