Eating to Boost Immunity

With all the talk about the Coronavirus that is hitting all of us right now; I decided to share a quick post on things that can’t cure it, but try (in their small way) to help you just stay naturally healthy.

There are a lot of things to eat that naturally help boost our immunity. Among those things are garlic, turmeric, salmon, dark leafy greens, and black currents. So here are 5 recipes using those ingredients.

  1. Ginger and Garlic Soup
  2. Turmeric Ginger & Lemon Shots
  3. Cold-Fighting Creamy Broccoli Soup
  4. Uri Buri Lemon Turmeric Salmon
  5. Immune-Boosting Elderberry and Rose Hips Tonic

Air Frying: Recipes To Get Me Started

I got an Air Fryer for Christmas and I have absolutely no idea how to use it or what to make in it. So I am resolutely using it this week. Now I am looking for recipes to get me started. Here are a few that I found.

Does anyone else have an air fryer? Do you like (love) it? What are some things that you like to make in it?

  1. Air Fryer Lemon Pepper Shrimp
  2. Air Fryer Salmon
  3. Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries
  4. Air Fryer Sesame Chicken Breasts
  5. Air Fryer Chicken Wings

Not Your Usual Sweets

It is that time of year again when everyone turns on their ovens and starts baking. This year for me is a little different. I have actually given up sugar . . .actually even more then that, I have given up sugar, sweeteners of any kind, and any food that tastes sweet. I am not sure if or when I might incorporate somethings back into my diet but it won’t be for awhile.

In the meantime, I was thinking about everyone else with this post. Sometimes that greatest step we can make for ourselves is making the smallest change. Consider baking this year but using different flours, different sweeteners, or adding veggies to the mix. You never know but you might end up with something new you like.

So here are 5 recipes to get you thinking outside of the box.

  1. Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies
  2. Coconut Macadamia Bars
  3. Healthy Chocolate Donuts
  4. Deep Dish Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Blondies
  5. Homemade Healthy Tagalongs

Soup is on the Menu

Can you believe it is October? Where did the summer go? One day I was wearing shorts and t-shirt; now I find myself in long pants and sweaters. I am now cuddling up in a blanket and keeping the windows closed so as to not let too much cold air in.

That brings me to food. The kind of food I want to eat when I need to get warm. Soup.

Here are 5 recipes I am giving a try this season.

  1. Hot & Sour Soup from Nom Nom Paleo
  2. Bok Choy Chicken Garlic Soup from Canadian Cooking Adventures
  3. Kale Soup with Curried Cauliflower Rice from Cotter Crunch
  4. Instant Pot Chicken & White Bean Soup from Feasting at Home
  5. 15 Minute Wonton Soup from Feasting at Home
