In this 90 second Fast Thursday read we look at some simple ways you can turn what you do indoors into protecting your immune system when you are outdoors.
On average there’s one room in peoples’ homes across Halesowen which is more valuable than others.
And that’s your Kitchen. Kitchens are often the room in a home that people spend the most money on. The good news is it’s a wise investment in more ways than one.
A well designed, smart looking and functional kitchen will add value to your property – potentially thousands of pounds. More importantly, it’s also the place where you can add value and quality to your life by preparing food which will boost your immune system.
We’ve all been advised recently about the importance of a robust immune system. Below are three simple ways you can boost your immunity as recommended by the NHS.
1. Fantastic Five – Yes, as many of us know, getting your five a day of fruit and veg is a cornerstone of better health.
2. Sugar Slowdown – Fancy a sugary treat? Reach for an orange or some dried sweet fruits like cranberries or mango instead of the biscuit tin.
3. Hygiene Heaven – A clean kitchen not only looks great, but it’s a great way of reducing germs that can attack immune systems.
Also any health-conscious kitchen should be stocked with immune-boosting foods such as these recommended by the NHS:
Broccoli – Watermelon – Yoghurt – Wild Mushrooms – Citrus Fruits – Garlic and Bell Peppers.
