What to Eat And ignore When You Have the Flu

What to Eat And ignore  When You Have the Flu

Eat These Foods

Fresh Fruits And Vegetables: 

When you’re sick, washing and preparing fruits and vegetables might seem such as a lot of effort, but these fresh foods are packed with the nutrients and vitamins your body needs to recover. When you have the flu, spinach, kale and other leafy greens can even help strengthen your immune system. They are excellent sources of nutrients that help the immune system, like  vitamins A, C, E, and K. Leafy greens can be eaten raw with a squeeze of a lemon and a drizzle of olive oil, or you can add them to a fruit or green smoothie.


Turmeric is a great spice with anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and anti-bacterial properties. It helps in the treatment of coughs, colds and chest congestion. Turmeric has long been utilized in traditional medicine. It includes curcumin, an active compound that helps increase immunity, ward off colds and flu, and save against various viral infections.

Ignore These Foods

Caffeinated Drinks And Alcohol: 

When you have a fever, you should be cautious of dehydration because of  elevated temperatures and improved sweating. Caffeine and alcohol can aggravate your symptoms, so stay hydrated by drinking so much  water and other clear liquids throughout the day.

Packaged Foods:

Foods including partially hydrogenated oil are bad for your heart and cause inflammation, so read the labels before eating packaged foods like biscuits, chips, doughnuts, crackers and pie crusts. Even if the label says ‘0 trans fat’, ignore eating the product because the permissible 0.5 grams per serving is approximately always present in such processed foods.

Saturated Fats: 

Saturated fats, like those found in baked goods (cookies, cakes, etc.), full-fat dairy, red meat and palm oil can cause inflammation and should be ignored.


Sugar is an inflammatory food and best ignored  when you are ill; try to decrease your general consumption of sugar for good health.

Dairy Foods: 

Dairy can even cause inflammation and improve mucus production in your body. Improved mucus will only make your nose runnier.
