This food is also rich in beta carotene, which provides you with a healthy dose of antioxidants. Not impressed? My post ‘What’s All The Fuss About Antioxidants?’ explains exactly how these little guys can save your life and preserve your health in the long run naturally.

As a side benefit, squash is very versatile in terms of cooking. If you’re a cooking enthusiast, you can enjoy a delicious pie with your loved ones, while the lazier of us can simply roast it in the oven with a pinch of cinnamon on top.


  1. Ginger

If you’re looking for an ally to prevent and fight-off winter viruses, then ginger is your best friend. This plant has been used for centuries mainly to improve digestion or cure digestive problems.

What our ancestors may not have known is that ginger also strengthens the immune system and helps your body fight off illnesses caused by viruses (common cold or the flu). The best part? The freshest ginger roots are harvested in the winter months!

Since ginger has a fairly strong flavor, it’s best to be cautious about how much you’re adding to your meals. Generally, this food works best In Asian-inspired dishes or as a fresh ginger tea.
