Immune support for winter...

A few handy suggestions of how to boost your immune system and limit experience of colds and flu with the onset of winter:

1. Cook and eat slow cooked meals like soups, stews & casseroles. Fill with protein foods; meat or legumes, add a variety of vegetables for fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and top up with herbs, garlic & onions for fighting infection!

And these meals can be made in bulk to reheat for tomorrow's lunch or dinner, and freeze a few portions for another day! Convenient and Nutritious!

2. Include lots of foods with Vitamin C; citrus fruits, kiwi, pineapple, strawberries, blackcurrents, capsicum, tomato, chilli, broccoli, parsley, sweet potato, and rosehips (jellies, jam & teas!)

3. Foods containing Zinc have potent immune boosting activity;

RDI = recommended daily intake

6x oysters = twice RDI

100g beef or lamb = 85% RDI

100g chicken or pork = 33% RDI

cup cooked spinach = 10% RDI

1/4 cup pumpkin seeds = 10% RDI

1/4 cup cashews = 12% RDI

cup chickpeas = 17% RDI

1/2 cup mushrooms = 5% RDI

Tsp cacoa + 2% RDI

Jodie! Thank you so much for wanting to learn all about me from the inside out; from the top of my head to to the tips of my toes; and deep inside my mind and emotions. It was such an 'aaahhhh' moment for me to have a professional and gorgeous clever lady 'get me' and all my human processes and to also explain them to me in an understanding and nurturing way. You have helped me to become more aware of myself; my body and my mind.... and that's really quite amazing.
