Booting your Immunity this flu season – what you need to know!

by Lauren Branson

Local Boosting your immunity this flu season

We’re all bracing ourselves for the oncoming flu season but here are some practical tips to make sure you come out on top.

Taking a proactive approach to your health is a much smarter way to beat the flu rather than waiting for it to come to you!

1. Eat fresh, local produce – what you put in is what you get out, not rocket science but the research conclusively shows that your gut is the answer to most things. Your happiness, your energy levels, immunity and protection from other nasty things like autoimmune diseases and even cancer. So when it comes to fuelling your body it’s back to basicsfresh wholefoods, mainly plant based should make up most of your diet.

But just be careful because as the saying goes Apples ain’t Apples.


Supermarket fruit and veg has typically been sitting around for weeks so has very few of the precious nutrients left that your body needs. And been coughed on by all insundry!


At YFC we’ve made fresh food easy, produce is picked to order (you actually can’t get fresher than that) and grown with love by local producers. So it’s going to give your body everything it needs to keep you happy, healthy and bouncing out of bed.


There is also lots of amazing things happening on a molecular level in your gut when you eat local produce that has been picked when it’s ripe compared to food that has been picked early so it can travel long distances and artificially ripened. I won’t bore you with the details but the key to a happy gut and great immunity is fresh, local produce and you can’t get that in the supermarkets!

 

2. Love you gut with Pro-biotics – Once you’ve nailed the fresh local fruit and veg side of things you can help love your gut a little more with pro-biotic foods like kvass and kombucha. These drinks and other fermented foods help promote healthy gut bacteria and will have your body humming!
This Flu season keep some Fire Tonic in the fridge for that extra boost!

3. Sleep More – Sleep is so important and we should all be getting at least 8hrs a night. So switch the T.V off, put your phone down and go to bed. Grab a great book and let your mind switch off so you can get a good night sleep.

When your body is well rested it's in a much better position for fighting off the flu!
 
4. Shop Online - One of the best ways to stop yourself from catching germs is to avoid them. Jump on you phone and do your shopping online rather than walking the supermarket isle and exposing yourself to the whole suburbs germs. 

When it comes to fresh produce shopping online is king, it means your produce isn't touched by hundreds of hands before it comes home to you.  


5. Get regular exercise – keep your body moving. A fit body is a happy body, even if it’s just a walk around the block each day make sure you get out. A short walk is perfect for getting your heart pumping nutritious, fresh blood into all your vital organs and keeping you smiling from the inside out!

Boosting your immunity and putting your best foot forward this flu season is pretty simple. Start from the inside out with amazing, fresh, local produce and you’ll be ahead of the game.


So do your self a favour and set the week up with amazing local produce from YFC, picked to order and grown with love, no one else is doing that and you don’t deserve anything less!

Eating Seasonally and Why it’s the Smarter way to Shop

by Lauren Branson

Knowing what’s in season these days is anyone’s guess, with food shipped around the globe for most of us we’re never without and drowning in choice. But should we be eating everything all the time?

Our top chefs and food experts would say no, so would your nutritionist, financial planner and environmental advocate. When it comes to food we should be eating what’s abundant in the fields of local farmers, food that’s full of flavour, picked daily and celebrated for it’s simplicity. An ethos that’s championed by the worlds leaving chefs. But how does that work in reality?

Eating Seasonal

by Lauren Branson

Just as the seasons change, so does our body’s needs and seemingly so too our palate. For our bodies to thrive throughout the year we should be flowing with the seasonal cycle which naturally provides variety and balance. Eating and appreciating a varied array of beautiful produce provides a number of benefits for not only you, but also your community, our delicate eco system and also your wallet.
