Eating right is a key part of a healthy immune system, and so easy to overlook when things get busy! Here are a few quick reminders.


    • Fiber Fit
      Don’t forget your whole grains, faro, quinoa, lentil, bran, chia seeds, fruits and vegetables.
    • Healthy Fats
      Flax seeds, peanut butter (yum!), avocado, olive oil, and fatty fish.
    • Lean Protein
      Include eggs, chicken, fish, turkey, beans and tofu for a healthy mix.
    • Zinc
      Good sources include meat, shellfish, whole grains, legumes, grains, nuts and dark chocolate (you’re welcome!).
    • Vitamin C
      More than just citrus fruits, also try leafy greens, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, and peppers
    • Antioxidants
      Blueberries, strawberries, beets, red cabbage, artichokes and dark chocolate!
    • Probiotics
      Sure yogurt is great, but also look for kombucha, kimchi, kefir, and sauerkraut.

Take the time to take care of yourself and stay well!
