We still have a lot to learn about the healing powers of food. But this much we know:
Chicken soup does help clear nasal clog. Ginger seems to settle stomachs. Dark greens such as spinach are loaded with vitamins A and C. And salmon is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which have an anti-inflammatory effect. Quite simply, a well-nourished immune system is better able to ward off infections.
So eat healthy this winter. And enjoy these recipes from the kitchen of Dr. Charlotte Mathis
