In the wake of Austin’s first bitter freeze many residents are feeling unusually sleepy. A lot of us are already ready for spring and the return of Barton Springs pool. But since winter is here to stay, we’ve decided to share tips on how to stay warm and avoid the winter blues.

Get vitamin D

Human’s make vitamin D when sunlight hits our skin. Unfortunately this means in the winter when the sun is weak and we are bundled up, our bodies make less of it. An easy remedy is to drink vitamin d enriched milk or eat foods with vitamin d such as fatty tuna and salmon. This is a great reason to reserve a table at Uchi this weekend!
