1. Healthy meal composition

TIPS:

  • Adequate fruits & vegetables: The life in food puts life in you! These enzyme-rich foods help support healthy digestion and a robust immune system.
  • Complex carbohydrates: They supply direct energy for the body! However, because they are complex and contain fibre, digestion (and energy release) occurs slowly. They, hence, provide us with a more sustained surge of energy to get through the day.
  • Sufficient protein: Protein contains the building blocks of the body and is a slow-burning energy source. Therefore, we want to round out our meals with something that supplies sustained energy, supports our muscles and enhances cellular immunity.

2. Up immune-boosting nutrient intake!

3. Reduce sugar consumption

3. Plenty of time outdoors

4. Hugs
