Today’s situation advantages to use
Grocery stores are out and short on not only the toilet paper, but meat and dairy-please take advantage of that increase your plant food intake. That will strengthen the immune system.
70% of the immune cells is in the gut-gastrointestinal lining. It’s important that we eat food that feeds us and our microbiome-healthy protective bacteria. It is scientifically proven that whole food plant based diet fights inflammation. So 4 main groups of food to eat are veggies, fruit, grains and legumes. Today I had oatmeal with chia seeds, raisins, fresh strawberries, blueberries, banana. For lunch I had brown rice, black beans, salsa and avocado slices on the bed of arugula, orange. For snacks-sweet potato, rice cakes with hummus, pear, orange. For dinne-butternut squash, lentil stew with Brüssel sprouts, baked Japanese sweet potato with the homemade “cheesy” sauce, bowl of fruit. I drink water, green and herbal tea throughout the day.
Moderate exercise daily will boost the immunity and reduce stress. Even walking and doing something around the house counts. I use stationary bike at home, go for long walks daily.
Getting enough sleep will reduce strength and also boosts immunity. For me personally 7 hours of sleep is sufficient. But everyone is different.
Managing stress by meditating for some and praying for others people, staying connected via media, taking an online class. Here’s an excellent source that works for me:
KEEP CALM, EAT YOUR VEGGIES , MOVE MORE, SLEEP ENOUGH AND INFORM, EDUCATE YOURSELF! ❤️
