Eat Your Way to a Healthy Immune System
We're all more vulnerable to coughs, colds and infections during the winter months. If you're prone to winter bugs, now's a good time to prepare your immune system to repel invaders. Spring may seem a long way off but support for your immune system now will help your body to strengthen its defence against allergies, such as hay fever. Make sure you are eating some of these foods every day. It's food as medicine!
- It's definitely time for a curry! Ginger and turmeric add depth to recipes, while exerting a natural anti-inflammatory effect to support the immune system. You'll find warming chick pea curry and chicken curry recipes on my Nutri Natters blog
- A heart-warming home made soup provides the perfect comfort food for cold days. You'll love this inexpensive lentil soup even more when you know that several of the ingredients- garlic, ginger, turmeric and lentils provide fuel for the immune system to keep the bugs at bay
- An easy win is to add more herbs to your cooking- throw in some rosemary, coriander or parsley to add colour, extra flavour and cell-protective antioxidants. Fresh, dried or frozen herbs all taste good and boost the nutrient content of dishes
- In fact, all of the recipes on my Nutri Natters blog have anti-inflammatory properties. Scroll through and see what you like. I'm looking forward to warming casseroles with loads of veg, including slow-cooked venison casserole.
