Foods To Prepare Your Body For The Cold Season

Cold weather and the common cold seem to go hand in hand even though they really don’t have anything to do with each other. We were told as children to “bundle up and stay warm” or we would catch a cold, but we have learned otherwise since childhood and do our best to eat healthy foods that are full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. And while we are at it, why can’t those foods also make us feel all warm and cosy inside as well?

Here are some of the best foods to eat that can prepare your body for the cold season and keep you healthy and warm throughout the holidays.

Fruits And Vegetables That Are High In Vitamin C- dark leafy greens, oranges, tomatoes, sweet potatoes and white potatoes are all very high in vitamin C and can help you fight off most colds and viruses that we encounter on a daily basis.

Soups-if you have a difficult time eating your vegetables, why not try a bowl of warm, delicious soup instead? It has all of the vitamins and minerals you need from vegetables, but for some reason, most people don’t associate soup with healthy veggies. Try soups that contain garlic or ginger which can fight disease and help regulate your body temperature or a hearty chicken and rice soup which provides vitamins, minerals and protein.

Garlic-when you feel a cold coming on, add garlic to just about everything you eat and you will instantly feel better and be able to fight off that virus or bacteria that is trying to make you ill. Garlic has excellent antimicrobial and antibacterial properties which are readily bioavailable.

Ginger tea-ginger is a superfood that contains thermogenic properties which can help keep the body warm on even the coldest of days. It can improve your circulation and aid in digestion which can make you feel better when you are sick or keep you from getting sick in the first place.

Turmeric-turmeric is another superfood that is very high in antioxidants and naturally anti-inflammatory. You can add turmeric to your food or take it as a supplement and it can make you less susceptible to colds and congestion.
