As Mississippi’s farmers market season is upon us, it is a great time to remember we can build our own natural immunity by eating fresh healthy foods high in Vitamin C, D, complex B vitamins, and zinc. In addition to making you healthier your body will be better equipped to fight off colds and viruses, including COVID.
Vitamin C food sources: broccoli, brussels sprouts, spinach, cantaloupe, oranges, grapefruit, satsumas. And one of my favorites, STRAWBERRIES are coming in season right now.
Vitamin D food sources: salmon, tuna, sardines, fortified cereals/juices, milk, cheese, egg yolks.
B-complex vitamin food sources: kidney beans, poultry, meat, milk, eggs, fortified cereals/bread, sunflower seeds.
Zinc food sources: meat, shellfish, legumes, dairy, seed/nuts, eggs, whole grains.
Pineapple juice is also rich in almost all these elements and supports lung health.
