Nicci asks: What foods do you think help keep you from getting sick?


Follow what's in season in your region and you'll NEVER get ill! Mother Nature is a smart chick... there's a reason we have leafy greens in the spring (folate), melons and juicy fruits in the summer (water) superfoods and root veggies in the fall (front load the system) and citrus in the winter (Vitamin C). Not only will stay fit and healthy with peak vitamins and nutrients your body instinctively needs, you'll have a flavor explosion in every bite! No more mushy apples in March or pithy grapefruit in July. EWW!!! Shop locally or grow your own, it's all good!

Blueberries! I eat them all year--fresh and frozen. They're a great "super food".

Drove up the coast of Maine this year and found wild rose hips as big as shooter marbles! Brought them home, chopped them a little in the food processor, boiled them 'til the water was a lovely amber, strained and added a dash of Hawaiian honey.........OMG!! Vitamin C galore!!

Since first being vegetarian and now vegan I have not got a cold or flu in many years. I lost more weight in transition from vegetarianism to veganism which taps into to the being lean comment above. Being fit also helps to keep you from getting sick - if you can't run walk. Reducing stress is another important one.

Food with a high alkaline base keep your immunity system up. Lemons are good. List of high alkaline foods you can google to find out.

Simply eating the foods our bodies were designed to eat keeps us healthy and allows our immune system to focus on tasks other than saving us from the chemicals found in our non-food society. If it was made in nature, is most likely is ok. If it was made my man...not so much.

Thanks for a thought provoking post,

You can also eat some Oranges or Citrus Fruits will keep you from getting sick too because of the Vitamin C that is in all of those types of fruit.

Lots of citrus fruit, garlic,omega 3 and fresh fruit and vegetables and PRAYER for health. Praying to the Living God is perhaps the most important because it is He who gives us the wisdom to acquire and maintain good health. Helen
