Aside from our heating systems, warm blankets and never-ending layers in the winter time, sometimes the best way to warm up on a frosty day is to eat or drink our favorite cozy snacks. Ever had these which is your favorite? You tell us…
A Good Old Fashioned Broth
From homemade chicken noodle soup to straight-up bone broth, there’s a reason soups are touted to be good for the soul. Rich in vitamins and often incorporated with vegetables and lean proteins and carbs, a nice hot soup can boost our immune systems and warm our bellies all at once!
Of course, there are hundreds of hot tea varieties to choose from, and thanks to locally-based Celestial Seasonings and its factory tours, we can enjoy quality, local tea on the Front Range without having to drive too far out of the way. But, if you’re still the type that wants to sip from a cafe mug and have a nice chat with the barista, try out a new chai flavor at a nearby coffee shop or tea house. If you’re not into the spicy flavor of chai, just infuse it with another flavor like green or peppermint tea to offset the spice, or ask the barista to make it a little more mild.
Ok, so this one’s more of a guilty pleasure, but a steaming-hot pastry like a cinnamon roll in the morning can be the perfect warmup for a happy, productive day. There are a few places to get famous cinnamon rolls along the Front Range – up north, follow the billboards to Johnson’s Corner or head into downtown Fort Collins for a roll from the historic Silver Grill. Near Denver, try the Duffeyroll Cafe or Denver Biscuit Co.
Who doesn’t love a good chile in the winter time? Whether you like it ‘con carne’ or loaded with beans and spice, chili comes in all shapes and sizes. Plus, there’s also a variety of ways to eat your favorite chili. Add some cheese on top or serve it up in a breadbowl to spice things up, or simply take it camping in thermos this fall!
