Why is it that some people seem to be constantly sick while others tend to hardly ever get sick?
Well,It turns out that your nutrition and lifestyle habits are two of the biggest things that make a difference, and there are things you can do RIGHT NOW to help strengthen your immune system.
If you’re looking for what foods to eat to stay healthy and how to recover quickly if you do become sick:
✅ 1. GREENS such as spinach, kale, mustard greens, collard greens, broccoli, bok choy, and Brussels sprouts, are packed with the phytonutrients your immune system needs for optimal function.

✅ 2 ONIONS which are part of the Allium family of vegetables along with shallots, scallions, leeks, garlic, and chives, are full of organosulfur compounds. These compounds have known benefits for immunity and are released when alliums are crushed or chopped.

✅ 3. BEANS PEAS AND LENTILS are full of fiber and resistant starch (carbohydrates not broken down through digestion). The compounds in beans and other legumes can help enhance your gut microbiome, which is important because much of your immunity begins with the health of your digestive system.
✅ 4. MUSHROOMS, including the commonly consumed varieties like white, crimini, and Portobello, have been studied for their immune-modulating and enhancing abilities. There’s so much evidence that mushrooms are good for your immune system.
