Eating to prevent colds and flu
Unless you live in a bubble, you are being exposed to sneezing, bacteria-covered doorknobs, and germ-infested work environments. The old phrase, “what you can’t see won’t hurt you”, isn’t necessarily true when it comes to viruses. Finish up this winter season sickness-free by taking good care of yourself. Washing your hands often is one line of defense. Another is loading up your diet with foods that will help fight off illness.

Vitamin D, also known as the sunshine vitamin, helps regulate the immune system.

Eat regular food sources of vitamin D, including, salmon, fortified milk and yogurt, and eggs.
