Emma Seibold Winter Nourishment Plan

Emma Seibold shares her typical day-on-a-plate and recipes for the cooler months:  'In winter I tend to crave more dense and nourishing foods. A healthy way to meet these cravings is to make lovely, warming soups, curries and casseroles with warming spices such as cardamom, cinnamon and ginger," Emma Seibold.
