Micronutrients are our friends
November is here, which is synonymous with more time indoors, and, incidentally, colds.
Colds will happen regardless of how diligent we are at exercising, washing our hands, getting the proper amount of sleep and the right nutrition, but there are things we can do to boost the immune system, thereby reducing the severity and length of a cold.
Micronutrients are all the rave lately, being talked about by the World Heart Organization and Harvard University. Essentially, they are nutrients that our body needs in small amounts to stay healthy.
This weeks' share contains a big bag of potatoes but remember to keep the peeler away from the spuds! Potatoes with the skin still on boasts an adequate amount of vitamin B6 to keep your body going.
And instead of taking a supplement, studies show that eating a varied diet is the key to keeping that immune system strong.
And with recipes like these extra crispy roasted potatoes and leftover mashed potato patties, it is easier than ever to take your (veggie) medicine!
