Warding Off The Flu Part 2
Sweet potatoes are rich in potassium, vitamins A, C, and calcium, and are therefore a great aid in warding off a cold and/or the flu.
Garlic has many disinfecting abilities and including it in a recipe will help to prevent getting and spreading not just a cold and the flu, but many other infections as well. In case you don't like the taste or the smell of it, you can always resort to a garlic supplement.
Mushrooms are a great support for your immune system. Try pan-frying them and adding them to your meat, or simply include them in soups, vegetables, and other dishes.
In case you weren't able to avoid catching a cold or the flu then these beverages are helpful to ease the symptoms:
Water may not be your first choice of beverage, but it would be the best. Instead of functioning as a diuretic like coffee and tea, it adds fluids to your body which are needed to prevent dehydration.
Honey has disinfecting properties and will suppress a cough, ease a painful throat and relieves several of the other cold and flu symptoms. Add some to hot tea, warm milk, or plain warm water. You can also add some lemon juice to hot or cold water; the vitamin C boosts your immune system and you will soon reap the benefits.
Fiber is another good source for warding off infections and inflammations. Multi-grain bread is very tasty, keeps you full longer and is also excellent for your digestive system.
All these foods and beverages leave you with several options and they don't have to cost much effort and money. Seasonal products are often cheaper and we practically always have bread and water at hand.
It all comes down to making the right choice and what to place our values on!
Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance.
