There are many ways that
food can help to boost our immune system.
First, choose food that is fresh, and easy to digest. It’s also best to choose foods that are
grown organically whenever you can.
Favor vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and light dairy products. You can also cook with immune-boosting
spices, like turmeric, cumin, coriander, black pepper, and ginger. Cook food so that it is easier to
digest, but don’t overcook it so that it is mushy. Eat at peak digestive times. The largest meal of the day should be lunch, eaten between
noon and 1 pm, when Pitta is strongest.
Eat lighter meals for breakfast and dinner. Eat at the same time every day so that your digestion gets
into an efficient routine. And eat
until you are about 75% full.
Don’t stuff yourself, save some space for the digestive process to
function. Choose foods for your
dosha type, and also for the season.
