I use to spend a lot of time as a child perusing my mother’s natural health books. Their inspiration has carried me far in life. I once thought I would become a naturopathic doctor and still aspire to get my holistic nutritionist certification.

Enjoy!
Mushrooms have a wide range of immune system and health-boosting benefits. From stir-frys to mushroom coffee, powders or broth, there are several good ways to consume mushrooms and derive their benefits.
Anti-inflammatory herbs and spices such as cinnamon, turmeric, ginger and garlic.
Zinc-rich foods such as lentils, nuts, beans, seeds, eggs and some dairy products.

Antioxidant-rich foods such as blueberries, grapes, sweet potatoes, tea and even chocolate (yay!).
