A Slice for the Sniffles

Wednesday, 23 October 2013 18:45  by Kaitlyn T.

Do you need an excuse to eat a piece of pie? These classic desserts actually offer plenty of nutrients to help boost the immune system and ward off colds.

Pumpkin pie is abundant in Vitamin A, which can prevent germs from invading your body.  You can tweak the recipe and cut calories by using skim milk for whole milk and egg whites for whole eggs.  Two egg whites are equivalent to one large egg.  Also, low-fat graham crackers can be used for the crust.

"An apple a day will keep the doctor away"? -- Maybe.  Some researchers report they have found those who consume the fruit can increase their chances of warding off viruses.  These individuals may also recover more quickly if sick.  Make your apple pie healthier by using fresh apples and a low-sugar filling.

This cold and flu season, stave off the achiness and depression that can accompany illness by incorporating apples and pumpkins into both meals and desserts. The things we like can be good for us; all it takes is a little creativity.
