Immunity, immunity, immunity! It’s the hot topic raising the temperature of many discussions nowadays. It’s also vexed issue - vaccines, herd immunity, pandemics, vitamins, supplements, snake oil. At Supercharged Food we’re, funnily enough, all about the power of food. Not overblown promises, cure-alls, just good, old food. When it comes to immunity food can play an important role in helping you thwart disease, manage it and bounce back. When it comes to good old-fashioned health and immunity, the place to start is in your pantry. We’ve created a FREE ‘Supercharge Your Immune Health 14-day Shopping List’ to help you and your family navigate which foods are best. It’s a practical list of pantry, fridge and freezer immune-boosting staples. We’ve done all the research and list-writing for you. You’re welcome!
Many of the items recommend healthier substitutes for staples: brown rice for white. Almond meal for flour. More veggies than meat. To build your immune system (any of your body’s systems in fact) it’s best to get back to the simple idea of making healthier choices. But fear not, we promise you’ll get used to the new ‘swap-outs’ and your body will start to crave them. And so will your taste buds too! A few stars that we’d like to put on a pedestal are flaxseed, garlic, nuts and bananas. Flaxseed never cops any flack in the Supercharged household. We use its oil, the seed itself and crushed and blended into smoothies and cooking. Flaxseeds are a smart choice because they’re dense with nutrients - omega-3 fats, lignans (plant compounds that have antioxidant properties) and fibre. Garlic. It’s not only great for Vampire immunity it also builds YOUR immunity and is used in many cold and flu remedies. To get the most from your garlic here’s a few tips: crushing garlic and allowing it to stand for 10 minutes before cooking can help prevent the loss of its medicinal properties. Researchers have also found the loss of nutrients via cooking could be mitigated by increasing the amount of garlic used. There you can blame ‘researchers’ for doubling your garlic intake!
Nuts are packed with protein, fibre and essential fats. A golf ball-sized serve (about 30g) of unsalted nuts makes a vitality-boosting snack. Shellshock!
Bananarama. It’s the fruit we buy most. We love a smoothie in Supercharged HQ and bananas make a smoothie rich, nutritious and delicious. Buy them green, let them ripen, use some and freeze the rest. We like to have them almost, almost over-ripe. It makes them sweeter. Frozen bananas are not just convenient but add coldness to the drink. Enjoy the FREE ‘Supercharge Your Immune Health 14-day Shopping List’, it’s done all the thinking for you with lots of vitamin C rich fruits and vegetables, immune-supporting herbs and spices, flavour providers and fridge and freezer items.
