Top immune-boosting foods to get you through the cold and flu season

Now when Christmas is approaching most of us will start slacking on the gym and our diets. And you know what, that's ok. But this is one of the main contributors of why we fall ill this time of the year.

But is there anything we can do to still be able to enjoy all the mulled wine, gingerbreads and mince pies and not fall ill? Possibly..

As I said in my previous blog post, you earn the cold/flu due to a weakened immune system. With the right diet, you can strengthen your immune system and might be so lucky to enjoy all the festive food and drinks this year. I would say this is actually the best time to change your diet!

Foods to include in your diet on a daily basis

The foods in the table below are heat generating foods. They are also packed with essential vitamins and minerals that are crucial for a healthy metabolism and a strong immune system! Eat these foods to keep you warm and also good to eat if you are developing a fever.


To make sure you're immune system is working as good as it can during these cold winter months I suggest you take the following supplements:

  • Probiotics

  • Vitamin C

  • Vitamin D

Final note

Skip the junk food when you're hangover, start your day with a nutritious breakfast and drink plenty of water and coconut water. That way you might be lucky enough to be able to enjoy the festive season without getting ill!
