I once heard the saying “Medicine is not health care. Food is health care. Medicine is sick care.” and it very much resonated with me. While I know it’s silly to think that if you eat right, you won’t ever get sick again, I think there’s definitely some truth to it! So I decided to write this article about Paleo Immune Boosting Recipes!
Before we jump in to the recipes, let me mention 10 super immune boosting foods that you can start adding to your diet if you haven’t already!
- Garlic – Garlic contains compounds that help the immune system fight germs.
- Spinach – Spinach is not only rich in vitamin C but also packed with numerous antioxidants and beta carotene.
- Turmeric – Curcumin, a compound found in turmeric is known to have anti-inflammatory properties that helps boost immunity. .
- Citrus Fruit – Contains a load of Vitamin C!
- Red Bell Pepper – Surprisingly, contains even more Vitamin C then Citrus Fruits!
- Broccoli – Broccoli is also packed with phytochemicals and antioxidants.
- Ginger – Ginger contains tons of vitamins, some of which are magnesium, iron, zinc, and calcium.
- Chicken – Chicken and other poultry will give you your dose of Vitamin B-6. Vitamin B-6 is vital to the formation of new and healthy red blood cells.
- Sweet Potatoes – Sweet potatoes are rich in beta carotene which converts into vitamin A. This vitamin boosts the immune system and lower the risk for various diseases.
- Fish – Omega 3s also play an important role in the production of compounds that regulate your immune system.
