“Flu Remedy” Noodles with Baby Corn, Green beans, Garlic & Red Chili

I HAVE A COLD! 😦 Do you have a cold as well? Welcome, and let’s get better together!

TIME TO WHIP UP A FLU REMEDY in form of food. Then I can go back to bed and enjoy snacking on it for the rest of the day between sneezing and coughing. Tip: make a double batch of the recipe if you dread cooking again later.

OUR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM PLAYS AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN KEEPING HEALTHY so it’s especially important to eat healthy when we’re sick, eating junk food is not a good idea. Veggies provide nutrients that support the immune system. Also, they help keep you hydrated. Remember to also drinking lots of water, tea or fresh lemonade (with ginger) when sick.
