The winter is a great time to focus on creating simple nourishing meals for our families, cooking can be a wonderful way to come together with a spirit of collaboration and creativity. Here are some simple winter meals my family has been enjoying this season. We naturally gravitate towards foods that warm the body and comfort the senses. Soups, stews and pastas (try whole wheat and brown rice versions of your favorites) can be enjoyed the next day in a child’s lunchbox.
