Some women love the low, raspy voice they have when they don’t feel good. Unfortunately, that voice comes with some majorly unattractive side effects: A runny nose, a horrible cough, a burning throat and the complete lack of desire to move even an inch. Being sick is never any fun, especially when your life is already jam-packed with the things you need and want to do. This year you can ward off illness before it strikes by boosting your energy and strengthening your immune system simply by eating these three foods. Little effort, big reward? Yes, please!
Arctic Char and Kale
Arctic char is full of Omega-3 fatty acids, which ward off feelings of depression and sadness as well as boosting brain production. Eating kale on a daily basis can help slow down your brain’s cognitive decline, which means you’ll be a genius forever – assuming you are a genius at this moment, of course.
Every year more than 40 million Americans suffer from Hay Fever, according to research from the National Institute of Health. Snacking on sunflower seeds provides you with 49 percent of your daily intake of Vitamin E in every ounce, which calms the part of your immune system that suffers from allergies.
Tomatoes are filled with lycopene, which is so unbelievably good for your skin; especially when they are cooked. Cooked tomatoes provide more lycopene to the skin. This reduces the amount of UV damage you are subject to and it reduces your risk of skin cancer. It also helps to prevent wrinkles.
Eating these foods on a regular basis will have you looking and feeling better in no time. Not only can you help prevent yourself from becoming sick, you can also prevent yourself from aging too early in life; something most women would agree is great!
