TOP FOODS FOR IMMUNE HEALTH!
Want to Stay Healthy All Winter and Year Long?
Of Course….ADD THESE TO YOUR WEEKLY DIET…or several times a week…..and see the difference! SWEET POTATOES: SUPPLYING NEARLY 45% OF YOUR DAILY REQUIREMENT OF VITAMIN PER 8 OUNCES this wonderful tasting potatoe is packed with beta carotene, boosting immunity and protecting cell and mucous membranes.
MARVELOUS MUSHROOMS (MY MOM MAKES THE BEST!) All of these FUN-GUYS are great….and high in beta glucan, a good source of Vitamin D and other important immune boosting properties. I personally love Shiitake and Portobello, but expand your palate and try Maitake and Reishi as well for their high medicinal effect.
CRUCIFEROUS CONQUERERS! YES, VERY IMPORTANT. Veggies such as KALE, BROCCOLI, RED AND GREEN CABBAGE, BRUSSEL SPROUTS, ETC are all POWERHOUSES of Health and Immunity! Proving Vitamin C and Beta-Carotene along with trace minerals not always easy to get along with zinc (important for that prostate especially!) as well as selenium, potassium and more! Find Recipes that you can become creative with…and yes, even occasionally doing some fried sweet potatoes will not harm you…just limit the fried foods in general but I prefer to see you eat them fried then not at all!
SPICE THINGS UP! GARLIC, ONIONS, SPICES: Yes not only do most LOVE these taste, but GARLIC is a natural antibiotic as well and ONIONS are known to lower blood pressure (and make you cry (perhaps that is detoxifying!)…the spice TUMERIC HAS GAINED MUCH POPULARITY for its cancer-fighting properties and protection against Alzheimer’s…and other spices such as curry, curcumin, pepper, rosemary and more have many beneficial effects…. SENSATIONAL SEEDS! Yes, always a good addition…..for the much acclaimed CHIA SEEDS – high in protein, nutrients and Omega as well as SUNFLOWER, PUMPKIN (lots of zinc!) are ALL not only good snack foods but extremely beneficial to your immune function.
YUMMY YOGURTS: From Organic Stonyfield (which I personally like) to the popular Greek Yogurts which I also have ALMOST EVERY DAY AS A SNACK….these fermented dairy products are wonderful for digestion, balancing intestinal flora and your overall health. Our BIFILON Probiotic is of course highly concentrated in flora to help with digestion, stomach distress, regularity and needed often in addition to these yogurts, particularly if you do not eat them every day or care for them…I take one every day in addition to yogurt and sans stomach distress!!!
THINK AND SEE RED – IN A GOOD WAY! Be sure to incorporate the red into your diet…Lycopene rich tomatoes (heated), red pepper, red grapes, watermelon – all wonderful for fighting cancer as well as building immunity. OUE LYCOCELL is for those that want the clinical dose of 30mg of LYCOPENE in their diet to fight prostate cancer as well as benefit skin, heart and eyes.
BENEFICIAL BEVERAGES…ditch the soda, sugared teas, dangerous super caffeinated drinks for some healthy GREEN TEA…they even make a Green Tea with Blueberry that I personally like a lot! Rich in L-Theanine and other compounds that protect the cells from damage and as shown my many studies to have a “cupful” of healthy benefits….Try drinking a few cups a day at least….. (I love coffee also…and yes I have my one cup of Kona in the morning and love it…but then switch to teas, water with lemon, unsweetened juices- MY PERSONAL FAVORITE IS NATURAL CRANBERRY JUICE IWHT A LITTLE RAW HONEY AND FRESH SQUEEZED LIME……TRY IT!
AND WHAT ABOUT THE TRIED AND TRUE? Well, as far as I am concerned things such as Organic unfiltered APPLE CIDER VINEGAR with “mothers” (THAT IS THE CLOUDY BENEFICIAL STUFF THAT SETTLES AT THE BOTTOM) …..MOM’s CHICKEN SOUP……. EMULSIFIED COD LIVER OIL (I SEE THAT EXPRESSION! Of course our NEPTUNE KRILL OIL and FEMMENOL ARE SUPERIOR TO TYPICAL OMEGA AND IS PREFERRED BY MOST so you have a choice that is tasteless and protects joints, heart health enhances mood, etc.!)…and RAW VIRGIN COCONUT OIL (so many uses and so many benefits)…BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES…AND OTHERS…ARE HERE TO STAY IN MY BOOK!!! SO EAT WELL….FEEL WELL…LOOK WELL….. TO YOUR HEALTH, PATRICIA OF PULSE
