Fight Off The Winter Blues With These 5 Tasty Immunity-Boosting Recipes

As the colder months (and flu season) start to creep up on us, thinking about how we are looking after our immunity and general health is important to reduce any more disrupted plans that have plagued us for the last few years. Along with ensuring we are finding ways to stay active, getting enough sleep, and balancing work and pleasure, looking at the ways we incorporate eating healthy can be a great way to keep our immune health strong. As an athlete of a summer (outdoor) sport, the winter months are not only gruelling in terms of the training hours required but also eating right to reduce the amount of missed crucial training days from illness, as well as refuelling yourself to bounce back for another chilly on water session.

In terms of what kind of dairy products we consume, choosing ones such as Paris Creek Farms organic and bio-dynamic range are packed full of nutrients and fat soluble ingredients. according to Nutritionist Danielle Minnebo, some other health benefits of consuming organic grass-fed dairy products like Paris Creek Farms range include beta-carotene (an important anti-oxidant to protect against cardiovascular disease and is also necessary for eye health and immune function), vitamin E and CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid – CLA reduces risk of heart disease, is great for improving insulin sensitivity and reduces inflammation and improves overall body composition), read ‘Why you should choose organic dairy product – Food To Nourish’ for more information. 

I’ve listed some recipes below which I have used Paris Creek Farms range of bio-dynamic organic dairy products in. What I love about the authors (few among many) of the recipes is that they all focus on eating healthy, whole foods in a more sustainable way, using minimally processed and organic ingredients, as well as being creative in their ways of ensuring no food goes to waste.

These recipes use the best possible natural ingredients to create the perfect balance of health, nutrition and taste. The health benefits of these marvellous creations are cultivating inside a satisfied tummy. Tieghan Gerard’s online platform Half Baked Harvest is an amazing resource that walks its readers through the recipes in a very simple step-by-step way (this is a great one for you visual learners). Every single one of the recipes I’ve tried have been u.n.b.e.l.i.e.v.a.b.l.e, can recommend an Instagram follow if you’re looking for an involuntary drool mid swipe on the train to work in the morning.

These recipes are all great to make in bulk so you can have some healthy, wholesome and protein-packed meals/snacks in the fridge.
