Citrus

Oranges, grapefruits, lemons and limes are high in vitamin C, which is helpful to both prevent colds and shorten their duration once you’ve caught one. And, since our bodies don’t store or produce this vitamin, it’s important to get a little bit from food sources every day. Bonus: Citrus is at its best in winter, when cold and flu viruses are at their worst. Coincidence? We think not. Whip up an easy orange “Dreamsicle” smoothie from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe for breakfast, or turn the same base into popsicles for dessert.
