Immune boosting recipes

Entire world is suffering with COVID right now and it has never been more important to eat healthy and boost our immune system to fight this deadly virus. Two food groups which help increase body's immunity are - Protein based  and Vit C enriched food. 

I highly recommend eating protein with all your meals i.e Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner. I really did have very low immunity towards cold but increasing protein in my diet in the form of legumes like lentils, sprouts, chickpeas, soy bean, kidney bean and different dal preparation has increased my immunity so much.  Quinoa and oats are also high-in-protein and low in calories so try to incorporate it as much as possible in your diet.

Vitamin C is also very very important and simple everyday ingredients like lemon, orange, papaya, mango, pineapple, kiwi  have tons Vit C. You'll be surprised to know that vegetables like broccoli , bell peppers and spinach are also packed with Vitamin C.


I have compiled some really easy recipes which will not only be beneficial for your health but also taste super-delicious and flavorful.
