And some foods to avoid during this season of infections…
> processed foods
> sugary foods/drinks
> greasy foods
> hard to digest grains i.e. grains that are not flaked, cracked, puffed, popped or ground before being consumed.
> alcohol
> caffineated drinks

And, be sure to keep hydrated. Being dehydrated often adds to illness symptoms.
