So you’ve got a cold or the flu…
Here’s what to eat/drink to feel better, according to clinical dietitians at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
First: Ginger: If you’re feeling nauseous, ginger has been shown to provide relief. Try ginger tea, or add it to soup or a stir-fry.
Another food to eat when you’re sick: Garlic. It has healing antiviral and antibacterial properties.
Finally, feel better by eating bananas. They’re easy to digest on an upset stomach and provide potassium, an essential electrolyte that helps maintain the right balance of water for optimal cell function.
