My entire family is under the weather. It’s the stuffy head, unable to move, slightly sore throat, sneezing sort of thing that has you feeling just down enough that you’d love to spend the afternoon under the covers. The best thing to do in this situation, of course, is to feed the cold…right?
That’s what we’ve been told. So, what’s the truth? What foods do we eat to feed a cold, and should we really starve a fever?
From WebMD, “When you eat a nutritional, well-balanced diet, many other factors fall in place that keep your body functioning optimally. Foods that are rich in nutrients help fight infections and may help to prevent illness. Because a wide array of nutrients in foods — some of which we may not even know about — are essential for wellness, relying on dietary supplements (vitamins and minerals) for good nutrition may limit your intake to just the known nutritional compounds rather than letting you get the full benefit of all nutrients available in food.”
So, let’s feed your body, and get everyone healthy and feeling well again.
