Orange juice has long been the go-to when we feel a cold coming on, but here a few other options for staying healthy this season.
Trail mix! Why it works: Zinc and Magnesium are essential for keeping a healthy immune system, and dried fruits are a great source of minerals. Pumpkin seeds and cashews are also one of foods highest in Zinc, so be sure those are in your homemade mix!
Chilli! Why it works: Baked beans, adzukis, chickpeas, and kidney beans are all great sources of Zinc, as are mushrooms and, surprisingly, cocoa powder, so sprinkle a little cocoa into your next batch of chilli for depth of flavor and an immune-boosting kick! Tomatoes will take care of the Vitamin C.
