Avoiding the winter "plague" is extremely tough, especially if you're working a nine to five job surrounded by lots of adults and children.
Have you ever heard the saying, "let food be thy medicine"? You should take this quote to heart because there is a plethora of foods in this world that have the ability to combat the flu, leaving you healthy and happy during even the coldest and most depressing of months.
If you want to build a strong line of defense against the flu, here are the top foods you should include in your diet on a daily basis.
- Wild Caught Salmon
- Dark Chocolate
- Sugar Free Yogurt
- Sweet Potatoes
Now doesn't that list look delicious! As you can see this list does not include McDonald's hamburgers or Sonic milkshakes and for good reason. Those types of foods (processed, high sugar treats) only attract the flu.
So for your next meal, why don't you broil some salmon and pair it with a baked sweet potato, grilled onions and a tea and garlic dressing (yes, you can use tea for more than just drinking)!
