3. Look for sources of zinc, like spinach
During the winter months, we can come into contact with viruses that can cause colds or flu. So, it’s important that our immune system functions normally and zinc contributes to this. Fitness Meals's Spinach & Feta Omelette is a great source of zinc.
4. Eat more iron-rich foods
Red meats and green leafy vegetables are good sources of iron, which supports a healthy immune system. If you’re not getting all your iron requirements from food sources alone consider taking a natural iron food supplement. Our Char Grilled Steak is rich in iron and is one of our popular dishes.
5. Up your intake of fish, eggs and cheese
Salmon, Barramundi, Basa fillet, and Big Breakfast are a great source of vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system and also contributes to a reduction in tiredness and fatigue.
