Leafy greens—high in B vitamins, minerals, and beta-carotene
Berries—packed with antioxidants to deal with the aftermath of immune battles
Citrus—high in vitamin C and other bioflavonoids
Chicken Soup—delicious, digestible, and familiar; it’s also nutrient-rich
Ginger—antioxidant, antimicrobial, and warming to fend off colds
