This week: Foods for IMMUNITY.
Compounds in ginger such as gingerols may boost the immune system by decreasing chronic inflammation.
Compounds in garlic such as allicin fight bad bacteria & viruses lurking around conspiring to make you sick.
Pro-tips: Mince a garlic clove & spread it on a multi-seed cracker w/ a drizzle of honey.🍯 Or make a big batch of garlic greens for the week & add to eggs, wraps, pasta, etc.
3. HEMP SEEDS
Hemp seeds are loaded w/ zinc which strengthens white blood cells to protect the body from illness & infection.💥
Pro-tips: Sprinkle hemp seeds on a salad, smoothie bowl, or sliced apple. Oysters and grass-fed beef are also excellent sources of zinc.
4. UV MUSHROOMS
Mushrooms exposed to sunlight or UV-rays are one of the few plant-based sources of immune boosting vitamin D.
Pro-tips: Buy mushrooms labeled UV treated or high in vitamin D. Or put any fresh mushrooms in sunlight for 15 mins to 2 hrs to boost their vitamin D content.
