Survival of the Fittest – Part 3

What to do WHEN a Virus has taken you down

You know a bad cold or a mild bout of flu is not life-threatening, you also know there is no known cure so all you can do is cope the best you can while your body fights the virus and that takes time – time you probably don’t have. Many food remedies have been providing symptomatic relief for centuries and some now even have scientific research behind them indicating that perhaps great granny and ancient healers knew a thing or two!

Those that have earned their stripes on the anti-viral, immune-boosting front and are associated with reducing the duration of colds and flu include garlic, onions, chicken, chilli and peppers, ginger, Shiitake mushrooms and fermented soya products.

So how do you get these into your day when you are feeling dreadful and there’s nothing in the fridge? Here are a few soups you can make ahead of time, freeze in small containers then all you have to do is drag yourself out of bed, sling a portion in the microwave and reap the nourishing benefits.
