It’s that time of year: the temperatures are down, the snow is falling (and here on the East Coast it may be 70 degrees the next day), and everyone is getting sick. The #flu and #strepthroat and #colds are everywhere! Besides washing your hands ALOT what else can you do to fight against and heal from sickness? Try keeping these foods in rotation all season long:
*Fruits and vegetables: the deep greens, bell peppers and berries for all the Vitamin C, antioxidants and fiber
*#Probiotics: found in fermented foods-yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi
*Bone broth: helps thin mucus when sick
*Honey: antibacterial and anti-inflammatory-soothes sore throats *Fresh, grated ginger in tea or cooked foods
*Shiitaki mushrooms: good source of zinc
*Eggs: zinc in the yolk helps prevent getting sick
Wishing you all a healthy winter!!! #staywarm
