Foods to Eat When You Have Flu

Just as there are certain foods to avoid around the change of the seasons, there are also foods that we must incorporate in our diet to boost our immune system and help prevent upper respiratory infections, especially flu. Read here about such 5 foods and why these should be given emphasis:

Top 5 foods with cold-and-flu-fighting capacity:

  • Oranges / Orange Juice
  • Grapefruits / Grapefruit Juice
  • Pineapples
  • Mangoes

Reasons to eat more citrus fruits:

  • Citrus fruits have a detergent action, loosening up and preventing excess mucus build-up in the upper respiratory passages.
  • Citrus fruits are full of vitamin C and other immune boosting compounds that build your body’s cold-and-flu-fighting capacity.

Things to nurture as a habit to fix flu

  • Enjoy your fresh citrus fruits in the morning or in fresh squeezed juices or smoothies during the day

Make sure to have at least one fresh vegetable salad with lunch or dinner, emphasizing romaine lettuce or leafy green vegetables as a base.
