I have tips to keep wellness top of mind during the hustle and bustle of the busy holiday season starting with a crowd-pleasing side dish made with ingredients that may help support immune health.
To make this Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad with Grapes, toss together halved red and green grapes, diced cucumber, chopped parsley, dill and mint and quinoa with olive oil, lemon juice and zest, salt, pepper ginger and cumin and enjoy. California grapes are available in red, green and black with varying flavors, shapes, sizes and textures. Fresh grapes can be used in dishes of all kinds, and can be roasted, pickled, grilled, baked and more. Studies even suggest that grapes may help support a healthy immune system thanks to resveratrol and certain flavonoids they contain.
Next, support your immune health on the go. The Immunity Boost Spray by Orlo nNtrition delivers B vitamins and vitamin D3 in 2 daily sprays using Icelandic Ultra Spirulina as a delivery platform, a type of algae that is rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Plus The vertical farm where their spirulina grows uses so few resources that it has no carbon footprint. Its also carry-on friendly and perfect for travel, you can find it on amazon and at OrloNutrition.com
Next support both your immune and digestive health with pre and probiotics.Probiotics are beneficial bacteria found in foods like yogurt, kimchi and sauerkraut that may help support digestive and immune health while prebiotics found in foods like asparagus and artichokes help fuel those food bacteria. If you don’t consume these foods often, consider TruBiotics® is a science-backed probiotic supplement line that works naturally to support both digestive and immune health. TruBiotics® sugar free gummies feature the most clinically researched bacillus probiotic spores designed to withstand their journey through the body to land where they’re needed—in the gastrointestinal tract—so they can support healthy microbiome diversity. You can find TruBiotics® on Amazon and locally at Walmart.
Finally, take trash off your to-do list this holiday season by turning food waste into fertilizer. Lomi Smart Waste Composter is the World’s first Smart Waste Kitchen Appliance. Eliminate garbage at the push of a button which turns your food waste including produce and even meat, dairy and compostable plastics and packaging into fertilizer for your plants + lawn.
