The Best Foods to Eat When You’re Sick
Don”t let being sick keep you from eating right! Whether you”ve got the sniffles or a stomach bug, a diet of nutrient-rich, whole foods is crucial to a speedy recovery. Some foods, however, are better than others depending on what”s ailing you. Learn what to reach for next time you”re unwell.
Best Food for Allergies: Kale
Kale contains flavonoids that reduce the body”s histamine response and can help reduce allergy symptoms like nasal congestion and sneezing. It”s also an anti-inflammatory food that can help ease the pain of sinus infections.
Best Food for an Upset Stomach: BRAT Diet
BRAT stands for bananas, rice, applesauce and toast. These low-fiber foods give your digestive system a break while replacing essential nutrients that may have been lost due to vomiting or diarrhoea.
Best Food for a Cold: Chicken Soup
Your mom was right, chicken soup is the best thing to eat when you have a cold! The zinc in chicken – particularly dark meat chicken – helps shorten the duration of a cold, while the water and salt keeps you hydrated. A squeeze of lemon adds some much-needed vitamin C.
