Cold and flu season is here, and it is likely that someone you know will get sick. Getting sick takes us out of our exercise and diet routine, and it seems like we spend the rest of the winter just trying to get back on track.
Here are 3 things to eat when you are sick to keep the body strong and avoid huge physical set backs.
Youve likely lost quite a bit of weight when youve been sick, and your muscles are probably sore and emaciated. This is why consuming protein is especially important. Easy-to-eat proteins like Cottage Cheese and Eggs are probably your best choices, simply because your stomach and digestive system wont be able to handle steak and other tougher sources of protein as easily.
Bananas are great when youre sick because they are easy to digest. Bananas are also easy to chew and theyre loaded with vitamins and, more importantly, potassium, that will give your immune system a very much needed boost to aid your body as it recovers
Experts suggest that yogurt may be just the thing you need when you are trying to fight off a cold or flu virus. The probiotics that yogurt contains specifically helps to fight disease and create higher white blood cell count. Its also packed with protein, needs no preparation, and is easily digested by the stomach.
