10 Guilt-Free Comfort Foods To Warm Your Heart In Winter

Everything has its advantages and disadvantages. Even in nature. Just like summer has lovely, sunny, long days, it also has humidity, sweat-inducing heatwaves, and the temperature rising to an uncomfortable peak. Meanwhile, winter may be gloomy, dark, cold, with short days, yet, festivals, food, and coming home to a warm house are appealing characteristics of the season. If you live with your family, or partner, this season is the best season to snuggle. Snuggling your way to sleep does not only make you feel warm, it also helps to increase bonding.

Talking about bonding, and keeping warm, there is another way to enjoy the chilly days, whether you live with your family, partner, or alone.
