Autumn and winter are seasons to make sure your pantry and fridge are stocked with essential ingredients to help boost immunity. Keeping our immunity up is important to help combat cold and flu.
These are the immunity-boosting foods that are staples in my pantry at this time of year:
All of these foods and herbs are core ingredients for hearty meals to keep you nourished and healthy. If you’re looking to make a vegetable broth, this my go-to recipe.
And remember to keep the body warm! Nothing drives a TCM practitioner or holistic nutritionist more insane than when we learn you’re drinking cold beverages at this time of year. Cold drinks can slow down your digestive system — the core of our health — and the body ends up spending energy to keep your body warm.
If you have any questions about these immunity-boosting foods, leave them in the comments below or consider booking a consultation with one of our holistic nutritionists.
