Enjoy these delicious and immune-strengthening recipes from EatingWell.
A well-nourished, well-rested body is the best nutritional strategy for keeping your immune system strong. While there are a slew of supplements on the market that tout their ability to boost your immune system, there is no specific food or nutrient that has been clinically proven to do that all on its own. To keep your immune system strong, eat a variety of foods that provide a natural abundance of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, particularly those rich in vitamin C, beta carotene, selenium and zinc. These healthy recipes will get you started—they all contain at least 15% daily value of at least one of those vitamins or minerals.
