With an estimated 10 million Americans suffering from seasonal affective disorder SAD, and with many feeling stressed by the demands of winter, we take a look at the nutrients and therapies that may help keep your happy face on through spring.
Apple cider and Dijon mustard give this chicken dish the ultimate sweet-and-savory flavor, while a colorful mix of kale, carrots and parsnips makes it extra-hearty and nutritious. To save money, buy skin-on chicken thighs and simply remove the skin yourself.
This intensely flavorful dish is a cross between two classic French meals: beef bourguignon and coq au vin. For best results, use a good-quality red wine – ideally, Burgundy. If you have butcher’s twine on hand, use it to tie the thyme sprigs together for easy removal once the stew is done.

You can’t get more simply delicious than a pork loin. Here, the moist, tender meat is brushed with a tart-sweet glaze and served with a fruity compote that cooks right in the roasting pan.

Health benefit: Citrus fruits are high in vitamin C, an important antioxidant for immune and skin health, but the real supernutrients in citrus lie in its flavonoids, which are found in the peel and pith. Studies have found that citrus flavonoids help repair DNA damage, lower cholesterol and have anti-inflammatory properties.
Health benefit: Fermented foods are full of probiotics, but in order to keep gut bacteria balanced, you also need prebiotics, or nondigestible carbohydrates that feed probiotics, like the inulin found in asparagus. This makes fermented asparagus a superfood for digestive and immune system health to help keep your body strong and disease-free all winter long.
