Summer is for food, family and fun -- all of which can help build immunity!
Yes, we still need to keep our immune system in top shape. Let’s start with some summer fun that is also beneficial to us. When life gives us lemons, we make lemonade!
Try this low sugar lemonade which lets the lemon shine through. Consider muddling in strawberries or peach slices for added sweetness, color and an immune system boost. Or add basil for its antibacterial properties. And mint is always lovely and has anti-inflammatory properties.
An Agua Fresca of fresh fruit and water has the added bonus of not needing sugar. I love this article which also uses vegetables and herbs for flavor and fun. What a pretty and healthy drink for summertime.
Getting ready for a BBQ? Keep up the good work you have been doing by clay pot cooking low heat and slow. Perfect with asparagus or squash – really there are so many vegetables right now you cannot go wrong and they all have immune-supporting properties. Or stay inside and try this easy authentic Morocco Chicken Tagine with turmeric and lemon complemented with butternut and herb salad on the side.
Remember, color equals immune-building properties!
