Immunity-Boosting Diet in COVID-19
Human beings are social animals, stated as a definition in psychology. The very reason behind this definition might be the fact that we all love to roam around, curious about things we don’t know and we love to discover and explore things, places, ideas, and edibles, of course. Human beings tend to go to different countries and continents, giving the natives their culture and acquire their culture. This cross-cultural exchange has turned this world a global village, it is easier now to connect and exchange things, even viruses can travel/transported from one place to another. One very notorious virus is this which we all are facing nowadays.
Yes, you guessed it right! Its covid-19 pandemic that envelops the world in its deadly jaw. This virus, is an attacker of lungs; having sat on the lungs, it maneuvers the respiratory rate of that person, after muffling his breath, he pays attention on the other important organs and system of human body, causing him severe flu, bad and rapid dry coughing, high fever and intense body pain, by and by the person enjoys the journey to his death.
The situation looks truly sad, but where there is hope, there is life. Immunity is fed upon diet, by diet I mean, healthy food and division of it in three different times: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The human body is dependent on healthy food and fibrous, especially. Once the immunity that is the body’s defense mechanism, is strong or getting stronger then, and only then, it is not viable for the virus to suck the host or to shed down his or her body’s power. The question now arises that what should be the best and safe diet to build up immunity in order to fight against the Covid-19 pandemic?
The answer to this question is: you need not worry as we have a number of diet patterns that can help in building your immunity and strengthen the existing immunity cycle. We care for you and we want all of you to be healthy and alive. Here are some fruitful suggestions:
“Eat to fuel your body”One should eat a variety of fresh and unprocessed foods every day to get the vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, protein, and antioxidants your body needs. Processed food curbs down the important minerals and protein-packed shackles into refined and finely grounded powder or paste. Such products are good on the tongue, but bad for the stomach, as it gets glued on the line of the stomach, hence not becoming the part of the active blood-making process.
Drink enough water.
Eat fruits, vegetables, legumes (e.g. lentils, beans), nuts and whole grains (e.g. unprocessed maize, millet, oats, wheat, brown rice or starchy tubers or roots such as potato, yam, taro, or cassava), and foods from animal sources (e.g. meat, fish, eggs, and milk). Avoid using packed or sealed products as we are not confirmed about their quality and taste. Prefer to eat fresh, and freshly looking fruits and vegetables.
For snacks, choose raw vegetables and fresh fruit rather than foods that are high in sugar, fat, or salt. To add up a fruity flavor, try a recipe of grated or chopped dates, dry fruits of your choice and mix the ingredients, form a tight ball or give it a biscuit shape, freeze the energy nutty balls, and use it up to 15 days.
Tips to recognize the fresh or stale:When buying for a fish, closely monitor the eye area of the fish, if it’s sunken inside, it’s a clear cut sign that it’s not fresh! Touch the skin of the fish, if it’s too tender, it’s again not fresh.
If you intend to buy vegetables, see the wrinkles. If the peel is withered or looking dry, then avoid buying such edibles.
Buying fruits can be tricky as many are washed in surf or oil to get the natural luster. Hold on! Don’t worry again. I have a simple solution, whatever fruit you want to buy, press it lightly and sense the juice inside, in the case of pomegranates, don’t buy cracked fruit, honey-coloured bananas ripen and best quality. Go for it.
