Welcome from Guy Warner
November is all about comfort food and with news that we are entering a second lockdown this week, we need all the comfort we can get! Thankfully, we’ve got plenty of feel-good foods in our stores in Tewkesbury and Quedgeley – we’re keeping the stores well-stocked with essential items which means you don’t have to travel far to find your everyday supplies.
While it can be tempting during lockdown to feast on pizza and chips and sugary snacks, it can also be a chance to really explore your diet and to see what food makes you feel good. Comfort eating isn’t about indulgence – it’s about nurturing your body and mind, providing essential nutrients that keep it in fantastic working order, and making the connection between food and wellbeing.
November’s crop of root vegetables makes it the ideal time of year to do this. Boost your intake of healthy vitamins and minerals by whizzing parsnips, beets and celeriac into soups, simmering carrots, squashes and potatoes into stews or chopping sweet potatoes, swede and pumpkin into curries. Low-cost, low-maintenance, and low in sugar and saturated fats, this is comfort food at its best!
