So Simple: 5 Tips to Regain Your Health As Fast As Possible
Yes, it’s this time of the year again: Influenza, it’s your moment of glory. During these unpleasant times we appreciate our health even more and want to regain it as soon as possible. That’s why you need these five tips to get back on the healthy life track. Here we go!
Get Yourself a Sick Note
Sounds clear. But really think about it: How often have you gone to school or work being sick. I have to blame myself a lot here and it never helped with the healing process. Be cautious with too much ambition and give yourself some days off to recover fully.
What About Those Proteins?
When we’re sick, we often struggle with our appetite. Eventually, we don’t eat enough food and this often means that we lack protein. And girls and boys – don’t underestimate the power of protein. And I’m not talking about the weight loss aspects some might interpret here. Proteins are the building material for almost everything in our bodies. They take things from A to B, make your nails look beautiful etc. But most important: your immune system consists of proteins.
It doesn’t make sense to give you exact numbers. Just pay attention to this: Always make sure to integrate one source of protein into each of your meals.
Good sources of protein are:
meat and fish
eggs and milk products
When you find it hard to integrate one of these sources, you can also grab a protein shake from time to time.
Go for Vegetables
What’s the first thing you think you should eat when you’ve caught a cold: citrus juice. The good vitamin C! That’s great but you should also consider other sources that are even greater. While enjoying a sweet fruit, we often forget about vegetables. Cabbage, bell pepper and broccoli are filled to the brim with vitamin C and other great nutrients – without containing tons of fructose. Not that you shouldn’t eat fruit anymore – definitely do that but vegetables should be seen more often on your plate.
The next tip is also a solution for two of the problems: more vegetables and getting in food.
We already talked about the lack of appetite in Tip 2 but here’s how to solve this problem while also getting those greens in. Have a guess how to get in a lot of vegetables…
Right! The green smoothie hype is still very prominent and I definitely support this. I find it a lot easier to drink my meals when I’m sick and this is also a great way to get in a lot of vitamins. A lot of people are literally afraid of green smoothies and I can relate to that. Here’s a fun fact: I love green smoothies nowadays but after I tried my first green smoothie it took me one whole year to even get close to another one. My first experience was awful and I really want to spare you that. That’s why I created this easy formula which helps you to make a green smoothie fast and easy. Start slow and then work your way up.
Beginners: 3 parts fruit & 1 part vegetables Start with something neutral like spinach or lettuce.
Advanced: 2 parts fruit & 2 parts vegetables (50/50) Experiment with whatever you’ve got at home and find your favorites.
For the brave: 3 parts vegetables & 1 part fruit or go all in Here’s the best tip I received so far: always add a sour and a hot component. For the sour one you can go for lime juice or cider vinegar. Ginger is great to add the spiciness.
What’s missing here? Protein of course! That’s why I like to add a protein shake to my smoothies. I also love to stir some linseeds in for extra fiber and those good fats.
Just one last thing…
Among all the vitamins we can consume, there’s one that isn’t found in our food because we produce it in our skin with the help of the sun: vitamin D. It is so important for our immune system that there’s nothing left to say but get out!
