Recipe: Apple & Pumpkin Spice Stew

Winter is a good time to think about ways to support living an Inclusive Health lifestyle. Some ideas to do this include arranging resolutions for yourself that are realistic and achievable; adjusting your skincare routine for the cold weather; and eating healthy, hearty meals that will give your body the building blocks it needs to function at its peak.

Today, I’m recommending an Inclusive Health recipe from Never Home Maker to help you build stronger cells from the inside out during the cold winter days. This Apple Pumpkin Spice Stew contains many youth-building ingredients, including:

  • Apples, which have fiber that has been shown to help reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity, and Type 2 diabetes;
  • Pumpkin, which has potassium that has been shown to help to lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and;
  • Pinto Beans, which have folate that may help reduce depression and keep your brain young.

What is your favorite healthy winter recipe?

Enjoy!
