Eat smaller meals more frequently
Another great strategy to keep your immune system strong is starting meals early in the day to maximize caloric intake for healing and aiming for around 4-6 small meals per day.
How can we mindfully make good food choices?
Make a schedule or a daily meal plan. A schedule is more predictable for you and for everyone in your household.
Consider apps to stay connected around a meal. Maybe share recipes or even cook virtually together, try something new.
Plan for groceries. Try to buy fewer processed, high-salt or high-sugar snacks and meal sides.
Load up on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, healthy fats, and lean proteins.
Save money. Skip the high-sugar soda and juices; instead flavor water with citrus or berries.
Plan and enjoy an occasional comfort food for a one time a week treat.
Manage your environment. If you don’t have “junk” around the house, you aren’t able to eat it.
