What to eat to boost my immunity...
Our immunity starts in our gut so technically anything we eat or drink would directly affect the immune response of our bodies, right?
Since the beginning of the Pandemic, the world has been more conscious than ever to build a strong immunity
But the belief that one food can do it all is the wrong approach...
Which is why focusing on eating a varied balanced diet, i.e. more fresh fruits, fresh crunch vegetables (eat the rainbow 🌈), lean proteins, whole grains, legumes, healthy fats and plenty of water is the trick if you are going all-things-immunity crazy!
All these foods provide the little vitamins & minerals that make up our immune system; vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Zinc, Iron, and many more which will be covered in the next episodes of Nutrition by Nav, with Dhow Nature Foods.
Meeting your daily water intake can also be a struggle for many. One way to boost your water intake in a healthy way would be to add natural flavours to it, such as
the use of herbs and spices which provides added benefits for our bodies!
Dhow's organic range; black pepper, turmeric powder, ginger powder, lemon grass, and cinnamon powder are the perfect mix you can use for warm, soothing immune boosting drink! Add a pinch of each to a glass of hot water or double the portion and put it in a flask to sip on throughout the day. These ingredients add great flavour to drinking water, giving it a beautiful aroma. This range of spices contain antioxidants, help boost white blood cells and improve digestion, all contributing towards a stronger immune system.
When you eat mindfully, you are more likely to make better decisions of what to eat and how much to eat daily, understanding the benefits of each food or drink to your body will impact your health in abundant ways!
