Taste Good Feel Good ‘Flu Foods’

Helping Your Body Help Itself

We all know that bed rest and drinking plenty of fluids, juices and soups are helpful things to do when sick with a cold or flu. Many of us though continue to ignore the body’s need for rest and detoxification at these times.

Feed a Cold and Starve a Fever?

The famous quote, “Feed a cold, starve a fever” is actually a misinterpretation of the original quote, “If you feed a cold, you will have to starve a fever.” This saying makes it very clear that fasting on juices and soups is the way to go to assist the body to get rid of toxins. This gives the body the ability to focus on stimulating the immune system to take care of the business of getting well rather using precious energy digesting heavy foods.

Here are some of my favorite things to eat and drink if I’m down with a bug. I love a hot ginger and lemon drink. The warmth of the ginger is so soothing and its wonderful anti-inflammatory properties are legendary. Lemon is filled with vitamin C and is a powerful liver cleanser as well. You can sweeten with a bit of stevia, raw honey or agave.

The most comforting food is hot soup which is easy to digest and nourishing. I love garlic in abundance in soups at this time. Jewish grandmothers the world over know the power of a bowl of chicken soup! I like to make an organic chicken soup with lots of garlic and fresh veggies and parsley.

Here are a few recipes to get you through! One is an easy and delicious hot drink and the other is a nourishing garlic soup:

    Good day! I’m sorry I’ve never been back to floridasince the closing of the Regency. Although I’ve been taking “big” trips instead of going to a “spa”., I still wish to be kept in the loop of you activities. Maybe some day I will do a spa and a big trip, right?
    Your program has sounded great and I’m certain you have helped hundreds of guests. It’s hard to eat well and excersise day after day without a spa check up but since the trips I’ve gone on have been wonderful I’ve had to really been diligent…not so easy everyday..
    I wish you both the very best and have a beautiful day. Ronnie Wolf
