As most Americans and many people across the world self-quarantine during this COVID-19 pandemic, it's a good opportunity to dial in our diets so that we can maximize our health, which will, in turn, maximize your immune system and ensure we're in the best position to avoid getting sick with this thing.
Below, Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center goes over a few ways to optimize your diet.
First, eat plenty of vegetables -- shoot for 1-2 servings per meal. Incorporate veggies into your breakfast, too, which many of us fail to do. Have a nice kale salad or incorporate some avocado, red bell pepper, onions, and other veggies into your breakfast fixings.
Eat 4-5 smaller meals per day instead of 2-3 large meals. It's important to ensure that your digestive system doesn't get bogged down with huge portions to digest at once.
Stay hydrated throughout the day. You should be getting about half your body weight in ounces of water per day, which will help your body stay firing on all cylinders. Dehydration can lead to lethargy, headaches, body aches, and more.
