Vitamin C Salad to Boost Your Immune System




Introduction: Vitamin C Salad to Boost Your Immune System

About: I am married with two children. Spring, summer, and fall are my very favorite times of the year. I enjoy working in the yard, sewing, cooking, quilting, gardening, and creating. I do this to keep my sanity.

When I was a child we always gargled with salt water if we were coming down with a sore throat. I have continued to do this all my life.  It works. If we would gargle at the first signs of coming down with a cold several times during the day, most of the time we can prevent the full onset of a cold. Washing our hands frequently especially when we are away from home is a good cold prevention. I stumbled across an article I wanted to share with you written by a doctor.  Here is the link: .  

While trying to find foods for a raw diet I came across a website that a man mentioned that if your recipes do not follow the 5 rule plan it is not a true raw diet.  I had to chuckle about his comment.  Basically it was if the meal consisted of more than 5 ingredients and took longer than 5 minutes to make it was not a true raw food diet.  Eating foods high in vitamin C is very good to combat a cold.  This tutorial is a recipe for a salad that is high in vitamin C applying the 5 rule plan.  Here is the article: http:// .

Step 7: Sunshiine's Final Thoughts

This is a very healthy, simple and nutritious salad.  My family loves this salad and request it often.  I also use hot peppers to help clear the mucus.  I use my alligator cold pack to relieve headaches from a cold.   

 Thank you for stopping by and please do have a beautiful fall and Happy Thanksgiving holiday!
