Consider making the typical side dishes the star of your meals – there are some fantastic recipes out there that could help bring healthful immune-boosting vegetables and fruits front and center (next to the turkey of course). Think of adding color to your meals – bright red tomatoes, orange sweet potatoes, brilliant green broccoli, shiny red, green, yellow, and orange peppers, and crunchy orange carrots.
There are no guaranteed ways to prevent catching a cold or flu. You could follow all of these suggestions and still get sick. However, we want you to remember that your health is in your hands – take responsibility for your health and do what you can to stay healthy and strong.
