What's your immune system running on?
Your defenses run on proteins that you find in meat, fish, chicken, eggs, dairy, but also (to a lesser extent) in legumes, tofu, tempeh. When you're sick, your immune system is working overtime and you need more protein.
To make immune substances you need healthy fats, these are pre-eminently so-called omega-3 fatty acids. Very good sources of this are oily fish, fish oil or flaxseed oil. Fats where you don't want to get too much inside are omega-6 fatty acids, such as in fry-and-roast fats or margarines. In nuts, seeds seeds, avocado, rapeseed oil, you will find a nice mix of fats and also vitamins, minerals and proteins. I wouldn't leave it right now.
Sweet, like me cake, sweets, fruit drinks, fruit yoghurt, desserts, chocolate and other delicacies or comfort food, unfortunately, does not contribute anything to your defenses. In fact, it can reduce your immune system by requiring sugar, vitamins and minerals to process carbohydrates, these are the same vitamins and minerals that help your defenses.
