Is the winter cold taking away sunshine and happiness from your life? Indulge in Vitamin C rich food items and eat light to stay bubbly and healthy this season.
A website has shares tips on how to beat the winter gloom.

According to the site, consume recommended Vitamin C levels daily. It is important to help support your immune system not only in winter, but all year long. It may also help contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

Grilling is another healthy option, whatever the time of the year. Bring that summery barbecue feeling into your kitchen and onto your dining table.

Make your meals lighter. We tend to eat more in the colder months, particularly more carbohydrates. Our calorie intake also increases, making us more prone to weight gain.

When the weather is cold and miserable, many of us fill up on carb-loaded comfort foods, whereas in the summer we're far more likely to eat salads and fruit! Eating more like you would in the warmer weather will help to bring back that summer feeling.
