Just as was stated yesterday, certain foods help prevent winter illnesses, so knowing that With Age Comes Respect you can feed these to your elders to prevent them from suffering from colds, flus and other yucky winter-time infections.
Try these on for size:
Hopefully you have some left over from your summer gardens as tomatoes are rich in Vitamin C which helps a person to fight colds and flu by boosting the body’s natural defense system in the same way that their citrusy relatives do. A medium tomato is packed with 40% of daily required Vitamin C and come in so many yummy forms such as tomato juice, pasta sauces or just a plain old tomato on a sandwich or in a salad.
These nuts contain Vitamin E, an antioxidant which helps to ward off viral infections. Again, these nuts are offered in a variety of ways, including, almond butter, almond oil and chopped or whole almonds.
