11 Apr Staying Healthy during Cold and Flu Season
It's that time of year, as we start to experience a slight seasonal change the cold and flu season tends to kick off around us… there's nothing worse than coughing, sneezing and spluttering so how can we avoid becoming one of its victims?
Keep it Clean: To leave your body feeling healthy and amazing the key is to keep your nutrition CLEAN with high quality foods. With the type of training we engage in your body needs to be fuelled to its best, don't change it up too much at once but slow small changes for the better will definitely pay off. I have personally found that when I let my nutrition slip a little with poor quality foods my immune system tends to take a bit of a hit.
Invest in a Good Green Supplement: Greens and salads along with lean meats should form the basis of your lunches and dinners. For snacks and to sip on throughout the day invest in a good greens supplements and let’s OD on all those amazing nutrients. For breakfast put some blueberries, an egg and your greens in the blender – everything your body needs to maintain strong immunity in a completely clean way.
Utilise some “cold busters:” try and add some good immunity foods/supps ito your meals to aid immunity – turmeric, ginger, garlic and glutamine.
Sleep Quality: To keep the body healthy, functioning optimally and feeling great we also need to ensure high quality sleep. Plan your day to allow you to unwind 60 minutes before sleep time, no phone, no tv etc. Invest in a good magnesium supplement to aid this process – we recommend a powder such as Natural calm.
