When we take good care of our bodies, we may be able to ward off germs that are in our environment resulting in cold or flu symptoms in people with weaker immune systems.

By eating between five and nine servings of fruit and vegetables a day, at least one serving at every meal and snack, we keep our bodies fueled with vitamines, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients.

Produce highest in antioxidants, vitamin C, E and beta-carotene include: sweet potatoes, yams, spinach, kale, broccoli, asparagus, cauliflower, snow peas, green peppers, red peppers, yellow or orange peppers, carrots, tomatoes, collard greens, chard, pumpkin, avocado, oranges, grapefruit, strawberries, kiwi, mangos, blueberries, raspberries, papaya, apples, pears

Build your meals and snacks around fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, lentils, nuts and seeds, for a strong immune system.

Love, Health & Happiness,

Phyllis
