Eating to Support Immunity

Jun 11, 2020

Our immune system is our bodies natural protection against disease causing microorganisms. When that system fails, we get sick. Sleep, stress and exercise are all factors in how well our immune system operates; so is nutrition. We discuss the foods that could help support immunity and how to prepare them to get the most nutritional value. We asked listeners to share favorite healthy meal ideas, to expand all our cooking repertoires. Suggestions included Parsnip Hummus and Bulk Granola making parties.
