Earlier we published a series of blogs that discussed our immune system and what nutrients are contributing to its function. This blog is a continuous effort to put together a compilation of recipes that are high in immune-boosting nutrients: vitamins A, C, D, E, B6, folic acid, zinc, selenium, copper, manganese, iron, and pre-/pro-biotics.
Recipes will be added often – so come back to visit this page. You can also go to our recipe page for more recipes, follow us (and like us!) on Facebook and Instagram.
- Berry smoothie & Granola – introduce yogurt, turmeric, and ginger into your smoothie for added benefit of probiotics and antioxidants. This granola recipe is rich with nuts which are high in vitamin E.
- Avocado toast with balsamic maple glaze. Avocado is among our favorite foods. It is high in vitamin E and though it is the highest fat-containing fruit, its fat is largely unsaturated fat.
- Roasted Brussels Sprouts. Some people love Brussel sprouts; some don’t. If you love them, enjoy this recipe with a twist of sriracha sauce and almonds. If you don’t love them, maybe this recipe will change your opinion toward this super nutritious food.
- Israeli Couscous and Sautéed Mushrooms with Herbs & Simple Baked Cod. Both mushrooms and cod are high in selenium and vitamin B6 while mushrooms are also high in vitamin D2. We like these two recipes for the use of herbs and spice: sage, rosemary, fennel, and saffron.
