Immunity Boost

Color and variety are the secret to a healthier winter

1.  Alliums: Onions and Garlic

These thicker-skinned friends can nourish your health in a season that can bring some health challenges (think cold, flu and the unknown). Revered by ancient cultures, they’re packed with antioxidants, as well as boast anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging properties.  And the sulfur, which provides their intense flavor, can fight illness.

2.  Plant Proteins: Beans & Lentils

Our cute-yet-mighty friend, the bean, concentrates protein, minerals, fiber, and complex starches (which are food for a healthy gut and flora).  The protein from these legumes is a powerful healer for all tissues and muscles.  Adding this perfect little package to your weekly meals strengthens immunity.

3.  Olive Oil and Healthy Fats

“First cold pressed extra virgin” olive oil is a result of pressing the pure and whole olive fruit right after harvest. This preserves the integrity, antioxidants, flavor, and healthy unoxidized fat (which your body needs). Drizzle on greens, along with lemon, and you absorb the fat-soluble vitamins, which protect your blood vessels and regulate inflammation.
