Eat This, Not That To Fight Your Cold
Fight Your Cold - Vero Chiropractic - West Des Moines Top Chiropractor

Bottom Line:

When you’re under the weather and just trying to get through the day, necessities like food are often the last things on your mind. You just want to feel better, and, honestly, even your favorite foods seem unappetizing when your nose is clogged, your throat is sore and you can’t taste a thing. However, making it a point to eat healthy foods while your sick can help speed up your recovery and may help you stay better longer.

Why it Matters:

Food fuels your body, and, especially when you’re sick, it’s important to give your digestive system a break by eating easily digestible, nutrient-dense foods. You’ll recover faster, and your immune system will become stronger. Here are a few ideas to get started…

  • Start with soup, as bone broth contains minerals that can help boost your immune system.
  • Consider adding yogurt with probiotics that can help improve your sleep, digestion, and overall immunity.
  • Stick to lean meats, especially those with omega-3 fatty acids, which can help reduce any nagging inflammation.

Next Steps:

Those same healthy foods that help you recover faster can keep you feeling and functioning better all year round. This week, try creating a simple calendar outlining your meals. Emphasize healthy, home-cooked meals which will strengthen your immune system (and possibly save you money!). And, don’t forget to join us for this month’s free workshop, where we’ll highlight more great nutrition advice to help you on your journey to a better immune system in 2019.
