Cold and flu season is once again here, which means try as you might, you’re likely still going to get sick at least once this winter. But what can you do to minimize it — and maybe even escape it?
Wiping down your shopping cart at the grocery store, sanitizing your keyboard at work, and avoiding others who are sick are all basic steps that can help reduce your sick days.
And here’s a more important solution: It’s always important to eat well — especially when you’re sick. Not eating when you’re sick can inhibit your body’s ability to heal itself. While you might crave junk foods while you’re sick, they won’t help your body heal either.
Stock up now on these healthy staples so you’re prepared for any sickness that might come your way this year.
