With winter here, we MUST do our best to fight off the cold, flu, and other illnesses...together, we can boost our immunity by simply changing up our diet a bit and adding some SUPER foods that'll help our bodies fight these off!! Eating a diet high in fruits and veggies is a definite plus for your overall health, but there are some foods that are higher in antioxidants
which are vitamin C, D and beta-carotene.
Vitamin C can be found in red, green or yellow peppers, strawberries, oranges, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, broccoli, snow peas
Vitamin E can be found in broccoli, carrots, mustard or collard greens, nuts, pumpkin, spinach
beta-carotene and other carotenoids, can be found in beets, broccoli, carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, kale, asparagus
*TO GET THE MOST BENEFIT, EAT THESE FOODS RAW OR LIGHTLY STEAMED
Studies have also shown both zinc and selenium also help in boosting our immune systems!
zinc: oysters, red meat, beans, nuts, seafood
selenium: tuna, beef, poultry, Brazil nuts
So, get out there and BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM :) I know I sure will!
