Craving sweets? Want more balance in your life? Try adding some grounding winter vegetables into your diet and see how you feel. Root veggies (like beets, parsnips, and carrots), winter squash (acorn, butternut, pumpkin, etc) and sweet potatoes soothe the internal organs of the body and energize the mind. And while we don’t necessarily think of them as very “sweet,” our body feels otherwise. That means they help cut down on sweet cravings — big time.
