Super Simple Chicken and Veggie Recipe

Healthy Chicken and Veggie Recipe

Simple Chicken

Are your kids like mine? I have a hard time convincing them that veggies really are tasty! I know I was a kid once too and my taste has definitely changed over the years but I can still remember gagging when eating peas. My mom would tell me that I needed to eat all my peas and I would cry, pitch a fit and let them get cold before I would eat them (which made them taste even nastier).  Continue reading

The Best Superfoods that Fight Colds Naturally

Apples and oranges mix

 

 

Did you know that some Superfoods fight colds naturally? Not only do healthy, nutrient-dense foods nourish your body and help cells grow and reproduce, they also help arm your body to battle attacks from germs that cause colds. Meats that are low in fat, fruit & veggies, and healthy 100% whole grain foods have an important role in keeping your body healthy.

 

Another important factor of your anti-cold defense system is water.  When your body is dehydrated, it’s at an increased risk of germs latching on and not letting go. Be sure to drink plenty of water and decaffeinated drinks to help your body stay hydrated.

 

Just one cup of yogurt a day can help to keep the gastrointestinal track healthier, which can ward off colds.  It has to be yogurt with live cultures, such as Greek yogurt.  Recent studies suggest regular dairy consumption helps you lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. So that is an added bonus!   

 

Garlic contains allicin, an antibiotic that has been shown to prevent complications from colds in some research. Garlic can be added to many of your favorite dishes to spice them up and help you battle against cold germs.                           

 

It’s been said an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Well, so can an orange. One orange a day provides your recommended daily allowance of vitamin C. Oranges are also abundant in flavonoids, which helps your body’s cells regenerate and stay healthy and strong. Green bell peppers are also a great vitamin C source.  Add them to a salad, or simply slice one up and eat it raw. 

 

Lean ground beef, especially when prepared with a bit of garlic, can maintain cell health and fight off illness. It’s a good source of protein, selenium and zinc, and when eaten with a bit of tomato, is a great defense during cold season.

 

Be mindful of how you eat and get plenty of rest. Chances are, you need to stay healthy to take care of others!
