When we were young, our Nona’s and granny’s often gave us homemade stews and soups to fight off cold and flu. These homemade foods were always helpful in fighting off the stubborn cold and fever. If you want to boost your immunity and want to ensure that you don’t get sick with the changing weather, here’s a simple diet or rather lifestyle changes that you can make.
• Load up on breakfast: You must have a hearty and healthy breakfast that contains whole grains, proteins, carbohydrates etc. Go for classic options such as oatmeal, yogurt, milk and nuts.
• Colorful meals: You must eat fruits and vegetables of all colors. The colorful options are nature’s indicator of the benefits of the fruits and vegetables. Moreover, oranges, bell peppers, broccoli etc. have vitamin c, antioxidant and iron which are good for health.
• Opt for probiotics: You must eat natural foods which are rich in probiotic bacteria which is good for our health. Foods such as yogurt, kefir can be eaten easily that boost our immune system significantly.
• Natural Spices: Ginger, garlic, cinnamon, black pepper are the ideal spices to beat the bacteria during the flu season. Increasing these in the meals will help in fighting the infection and will also ensure that your immunity is stable.
