The great indoors: creative ways to spend winter time inside


Winter is a great time to explore nature, yet offers plenty of opportunities to spend quality time at home. Like maybe a relaxed winter Saturday, creatively spent in the kitchen, or a cold winter evening, surrounded with your dearest ones while preparing home-made oil. Here are some ideas how to spice up your winter days at home.

Dried apple slices. Homemade dried apple slices served with tea are a brilliant idea for a cosy winter afternoon at home. Peel, core and slice them, then use the oven or a food drier to prepare a healtyh snack for those cold winter moments.

Home-pressed oil. Have you ever thought of how cool it would be to have your own home-pressed oil ready for that fresh mixed salad in the beginning of summer? You can use various nuts and seeds, from almonds and pistachios to sesame and line seed, in order to get your very own oil with a help of an oil press.

Home-baked bread. 
There’s nothing like the smell of freshly baked bread from your oven or new bread maker. Imagine starting a Saturday morning a bit earlier and make everything ready to surprise your dearest ones with a loaf of warm home-made bread. Sounds perfect, right?

Freshly pressed juices. A freshly pressed orange juice or lemonade is full of vitamins and a good way to start a winter day. Add a pinch of cinnamon to create the Christmas spirit or some ginger to boost the immune system.  You can also use otherfruit and vegetables to make juices and smoothies and help your family stay healthy throughout flu season. 

Let fresh energy into your home.
Winter isn't just a time for creativity in the kitchen, but also a perfect period to thoroughly clean your home. Be it your kitchen, wardrobes or any other room, clean and declutter your home. Get your spring cleaning done early, so you can enjoy yourself, when the days finally get longer and warmer.
