Foods to Eat when sick
No one likes feeling under the weather, especially as the weather gets nicer, and temperatures rise. But one temperature you don’t want to rise, is yours when you start feeling a little sick. There are so many foods that just might help you feel better and I bet most of them are on your grocery list pretty often. Check out some of the best with these top 10 foods!
Lower fever with this natural remedy!
Speaking of temperature, yogurt can be a natural fever reducer. And those with serious seasonal allergies get good relief before the onset of pollen season with yogurt.
Sweet as Honey
Another great allergy helper is natural honey. When used daily and bought from a local vendor, honey is a super food for sure. If you add a half a teaspoon of cinnamon and half a teaspoon of honey together you’ll get a fantastic natural cough suppressant .
Actually, most berries have such a high amount of anti-oxidants that have become a great source to fight off illness. Strawberries pack a big punch and are so versatile. Keep elderberry on hand and take it at the first sign of illness for a quicker recovery.Vitamin C is the best reason to eat plenty of oranges in a day, but did you know that oranges can also help lower cholesterol? They are also a wonderful way to help lower the risk of colon cancer.
Another super food to eat daily since tomatoes are so versatile. They have been shown to help lower the chances of prostate cancer in men. Wow! Add them to all your meals.
I wish I knew this amazing vegetable helps ease coughs years ago. And if you don’t mind a little spice added to your meals or snacks, sprinkle some cayenne in your favorite recipes. I’ve even added ground cayenne in my coffee and it’s great!
Keep Vampires away
Another great use for garlic besides just for cooking is use it to help you feel better when you have congestion and it too helps lower cholesterol.
Because peanuts contain chromium, they can help keep your blood sugar in check. So, if you want a good salty snack, eat peanuts and enjoy their benefits.
Chicken Soup Isn’t just for the soul.
Now this one is must try! The hot soup helps break up the congestion associated with both colds and the flu. The salt in the soup and its warmth can soothe a sore throat. A study claimed to have shown that it also has anti-inflammatory properties, which can relieve congestion too. Researchers specifically studied the movement of neutrophils — a type of white blood cell — when combined with soup. They found that the movement of neutrophils was reduced in the presence of soup, suggesting a possible anti-inflammatory mechanism that could at least theoretically alleviate cold symptoms.
Yet another great food I would love to have known about earlier is eating bananas to help ease an upset stomach. Not only are they packed with potassium our body needs, but eating a banana can help with nausea and the effects of morning sickness.
There are so many great benefits of all of these foods or as I like to call them – super foods! Try and see what may work for you and enjoy life a little healthier!
