Eat To Recover From Illness
Tip: Concentrate on quality rather than quantity of food to promote healing and minimize weight gain from being less active.
Boost these nutrients:
Vitamins A and C, zinc and iron, which are the top anti-infection nutrients.
Herbs and spices (ginger, turmeric, cumin, oregano) are known for their gut healing and antioxidant properties.
Probiotics (yogurt, aged cheese, tofu, miso, pickled ginger) help establish good bacteria in the stomach.
